Chiropractic Care: Your All-Natural Stress Solution

We’ve all been there. It’s 2am and you need to be up and ready to get the kids off to school in four hours and you just can’t get to sleep. You toss and turn and think about that conversation you had with your boss today about that big project you’re working on. Plus, you’re a little behind on your bills, and then there’s that story on the news about crime in your neighborhood.

Stress. You just can’t seem to escape it. It may not only keep you up at night, but it may make you feel overwhelmed and anxious in the day, too. And then there’s that pain in your back between your shoulder blades.

But where do you turn? For many people, the answer is chiropractic care. While you may be familiar with the use of chiropractic care to restore function and mobility after an injury or accident or to address chronic pain, chiropractic care also makes for a great all-natural stress reliever. In this blog, the health experts at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora explain how.

The link between stress and physical ailments

According to a study by the American Psychological Association, more than 75% of American adults report that they experience emotional and physical impacts from stress, such as changes in sleep patterns, fatigue, and headaches.

Stress, if not managed adequately, often manifests mentally and physically. This is because the human body isn’t built for a chronic bombardment of stress. Relentless stress can often prevent the body from naturally healing and repairing itself.

If the body continues on this downward trajectory, this can lead to a breakdown in organ functions and important cellular processes. And this, in turn, can result in physical maladies, such as back pain and headaches, and can put you at a higher risk for developing diseases, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes.

Addressing imbalances by aligning the spine 

Chiropractic care addresses pain and discomfort by making functional corrections to enhance overall wellness. Pain is often due to an imbalance. If you correct that imbalance, you can address the pain. But chiropractic care can address more than just musculoskeletal imbalances, such as back or neck problems. It can also address hormonal imbalances.

The spine serves as an important focal point for the body’s central nervous system, which regulates hormones. Hormones can affect many things, such as your mood, how well you sleep, and even weight gain. A misalignment of the spine can lead to hormonal imbalances, and this can throw everything out of whack, including how you respond to stress. If we address the spinal misalignment, this may help your body respond better to stress.

At Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora, we help our patients by using an evidence-based technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics (CPB). With this holistic approach, we can restore your body’s postural and spinal alignment and help your body return to a natural state of balance and repair.
