Level Stress with Chiropractic

Published March 31st, 2020 by Dr. Hoder

In everyday life, stress is unavoidable. From family responsibilities to work projects to sitting in traffic, there are constant stressors in our lives. In the current situation we are living in with the spread of coronavirus, stress and anxiety levels are at an all-time high. Our new normal may be temporary, but there are tools available to help manage stress. April is the start of Stress Awareness Month, so it’s the perfect time to learn about the chiropractic and stress relief connection.

The Spinal Connection

At Markson Chiropractic, our chiropractors are well equipped to help you release stress and provide you with some tools to manage it. But how does chiropractic help? The spine is a key component of the central nervous system, which forms the communication system between the brain and the rest of your body. When your spine is healthy, you may see an improvement in your overall health, including how you feel.

A targeted, gentle spinal adjustment may be used to correct subluxations and to remove dysfunction from the spine which will lead to pain relief and wellness. Many of our patients report feeling more relaxed and benefit from better sleep. Each patient has their own unique needs and our chiropractors create treatment plans to address them. Whether it’s pain relief or general wellness you are looking for, we are committed to helping you feel your best.

Stress Relief Tips

Along with regular chiropractic adjustments, there are steps you can take to relieve and manage stress.

Stay active – Whether you’re a yogi or CrossFit junkie, staying active helps boost the production of endorphins, which are the brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters. Even a walk around the neighborhood can help lift your mood and improve your health. If you need some suggestions for at-home exercises while we practice social distancing, just ask during your next adjustment!

Meditate – Meditation may not be for everyone, but even a few minutes each day spent focusing on your breath and clearing your head can help put your mind at ease.

Laugh – We know you’ve heard that laughter is the best medicine! Try tuning in to a funny TV show or giving your favorite funny friend a call. Laughter can relieve your stress response and relax muscles
