Holiday Stress and Chiropractic Solutions

          Holiday  STRESS!

Why do many people feel so much more stress at this time of year? We tend to
blame worsening traffic, crowded malls, and incessant commercials pushing
holiday consumption, and the biggest one – stress and demands from family.

Stress, whether physical or perceived, triggers a fight or flight
response. This is a systemic physical reaction, affecting almost every
part of the body. It can manifest as headaches, increased heart rate and body and back pain.

Chiropractors work primarily with the spine, the root of the nervous
system through which nerve impulses travel from the brain to the rest of
the body. One effect of  stress is prolonged muscle tension and
contraction. This muscle tension creates uneven pressures on the bony
structures of the body, often leading the misalignment of the spinal

Chiropractors are trained in nutritional and other therapies for
stress. Several nutritional supplements, including B vitamins, help the
body cope with stress. A Doctor of Chiropractic may also recommend
relaxation techniques, and discuss posture and environmental changes to
help recovery from chronic stress.

A chiropractor cannot make a
job less stressful, or create a quieter, calmer world for the holidays!

What chiropractic
treatment can do is help you develop healthy responses to stress,
reducing potential physical damage.

Chiropractic is based on the concept that given the opportunity, the
mind and body can heal itself. In relieving some of the effects of  stress, chiropractic care provides just such an opportunity.
