Chiropractic Care can help with some of the following things:
One effect of chronic stress is prolonged muscle tension and contraction. This muscle tension creates uneven pressures on the bony structures of the body, often leading to misalignment of the spinal column, known as subluxations. Chronic stress also leads to nerve irritation. The adjustments of a chiropractor release muscle tension, and that helps the body return to a more balanced, relaxed state. Adjustments also reduce spinal nerve irritation, and improve blood circulation. These changes may be enough, in many cases, to convince the brain to turn off the fight or flight response, beginning the process of healing. A healthy and balanced spine is one key to effectively managing stress.
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. 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 chronic stress, chiropractic care provides just such an opportunity.
Many studies suggest a multifaceted approach to weight loss. This would include behavior modification, nutritional guidance, and physical activity. This is where Chiropractic comes in handy.
We help our patients evaluate their nutritional needs along with their current lifestyle. Evaluating your individual needs is the first step to long-term weight loss success. Along with identifying your specific needs, our chiropractic offers encouragement and advice.
Our Chiropractors can offer a variety of weight loss strategies including spinal manipulation, massage, and nutritional advice. Believe it or not, spinal manipulation has been shown effective in weight loss management. Spinal manipulation improves flexibility and takes the pressure off the spinal cord. In addition, the simple act of aligning the spine aides in the absorption of essential nutrients.
A Healthier Body
Chiropractic care is a natural method of health care that focuses on correcting the causes of physical problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise that keeping the spine aligned and the nerve system functioning at 100% promotes optimal function and health. With a normally functioning spine and healthy nervous system, your body is better able to correct and heal itself. That’s because your spine is the lifeline of your nervous system. It controls feeling, movement, and all function through your body.
