Everyone is susceptible to different types, volumes and durations of ‘stress’ before the body starts being forced to look for ways to adapt either positively or negatively. Mental, physical or emotional and chemical/ hormonal stress are various ways our body gets damaged. Psychological stress can cause a lot of physical responses like anxiety, insomnia, back pain, relationship problems, constipation, shortness of breath, depression, stiff neck, fatigue, upset stomach, and weight gain or loss.
Stress can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works. In response to stress your body automatically increases blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, metabolism, and blood flow to your muscles. This response is intended to help your body react quickly and effectively to a high-pressure situation.
However, Chiropractic stress relief treatments could help you prevent any further complications and rid you of the pain caused by your stress. The chiropractic treatment could be complimented by practising relaxed breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, listening to soothing sounds and exercise.
