Chiropractic Relief of Stress and Tension
Anxiety and stress are one of the leading causes of pain that we see, because a build up of tension in the spinal cord creates nerve flow blockage. Your Ormond Beach chiropractor will use chiropractic treatment to alleviate stress and tension related issues. We may also recommend additional stress reduction methods such as massage, exercise, meditation, and yoga. Some patients find a chiropractic session will take the edge off after a particularly stressful week at work.
Stress is simply defined as an imbalance of bodily system or systems due to excessive stimulus. Medical research supports the belief that a very large majority of all illnesses are stress and tension related. The symptoms of stress include:
- Neck Pain/Stiffness
- Sleep Difficulties
- Digestive Problems
- Jaw pain/Clenching
- Cardiovascular Disorders
- Shoulder Aches/Cramping
- Pain Around Eyes
- Panic Attacks
- Difficulty Concentrating
Chiropractic care can reduce stress by allowing the joints and muscles of the body to move freely, increasing blood flow and reducing irritation and inflammation. Your Ormond Beach chiropractor will also carry out a full evaluation of your lifestyle to address the sources behind your tension and stress. Our goal is to help you feel better physically and to reduce stress from your everyday life. Stress and tension can increase the rate of degeneration of the body so it is advisable not to ignore your symptoms.
We can help you safely and effectively break the cycle of pain from stress and anxiety using time tested chiropractic practices.
