The Negative Impacts of Stress
Taking the time and care to manage your stress levels is important for your overall health. That irritating headache, frequent insomnia, or daily irritability you may have been experiencing are likely signs that your stress is getting to you. While these symptoms may seem passive, they can build up into bigger health issues over time such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and depression. Taking the initiative to manage your stress now will make a world of difference in the short- and long-term.
Why the Holidays Make us Stressed
Spending extra money on gifts, hefty work schedules, and busy travel itineraries are only the cusp of stressors that come along during the holiday season. On top of all of those factors is the overwhelming expectation to be jolly. It can be difficult to manage it all during this busy season. Your immune system may even become compromised from the stress and in the winter months, it is essential to keep your immune system in top shape. The last thing you need is to be sick at home with COVID-19 or the flu instead of celebrating with your loved ones.
How a Chiropractic Adjustment can Help You
An adjustment can benefit you in many ways, including helping your body and mind find balance. During an adjustment, a licensed chiropractor will apply short, quick force to the joints of your body in order to correct a misalignment, increase range of motion, or release pressure on nerves.
Both tension and migraine headaches can be caused by back pain and spinal issues. Spinal misalignment can cause muscle tension and pain which can result in both tension headaches as well as migraine headaches. Additionally, adjusting your spine will trigger positive hormones to help improve your mental health.
Additionally, a study published in the Human Journal of Hypertension showed that a spinal adjustment could give people suffering from high blood pressure the same relief as certain high blood pressure medications. An adjustment can help your body in many other ways, such as:
- Reduce neck pain
- Reduce back pain
- Reduce inflammation
- Improved joint mobility
- Loosen muscles, reducing the risk of injury
- Improve cognition
The satisfying pop you can get from an adjustment will relieve your body of the tension stress it has been holding onto. You’ll see the difference in how you feel within minutes of your appointment. Plus, an adjustment can be delivered in a matter of 15 minutes or less -- you can start feeling relief during your lunch break!
