Chiropractic Care Shown to Help Reduce Stress
Before the pandemic stress levels have been on the rise worldwide. 2020 put a huge spike in stress. According to The American Institute of Stress:
- 33% of the population feels extremely stress
- 77% are physically affected by stress
- 73% are emotionally affected by stress
- 48% are experiencing sleep troubles due to stress
In addition to the above, all this stress can manifest as muscle tension, stomach issues, headaches, and more. With signs of life going back to some semblance of normal, we at Levinson Chiropractic in Sandy Springs wish to offer our chiropractic skills to help you destress. Your mind and body will thank you.
What Happens to Your Body When You’re Stressed
Stress impacts sleep not only because of racing thoughts or a mind that’s nailed the switch in the on position, but also because you’re too tense to both fall and stay asleep.
Stress tenses you up from head to toe, causing stiffness, headaches, and even migraines. This tension can also lead to rapid breathing, high blood pressure, and increased risk of heart attack.
And yes, chronic stress weakens your immune system, making you more susceptible to illness.
Instead of feeling stressed about all the above, may you find solace how chiropractic care helps you destress from the inside out. Studies show that chiropractors can help restore quality of life by helping your body destress.
Ways Chiropractic Care Helps You Destress
Chiropractic care and massage therapy help you destress by reducing blood pressure and interrupting stress symptoms by helping your body relax. Both modalities lower blood pressure, working as fast as within 15 minutes.
A chiropractic adjustment also signals your body to optimize hormone production. This makes way for a better overall feeling of wellness, less pain, and less inflammation.
Studies also show that some chiropractic manipulation has a positive impact on sleep. One third of patients in a 2005 study reported an improved sleep pattern after receiving a chiropractic adjustment.
Stressed or not, chiropractic care is designed to help the body release tension. This means better blood flow, fewer--if any--headaches or migraines, more relaxed and flexible muscles, and more.
