Adapting To Life’s Stress In Lincoln
By: Dr. Shane Davidson DC
Stress is defined as a feeling of physical or emotional tension. Stress is a natural part of life, and unfortunately, there is no way to get rid of stress completely. The American Institute of Stress and Palmer College of Chiropractic stated that three-fourths of Americans regularly endure the physical symptoms of stress, and one-third of Americans categorize their stress levels as “extreme.” That means our Licensed Chiropractor in Lincoln’s job at Novo Chiropractic Lincoln is to prepare your body to deal with the stress life throws at you. A hectic lifestyle is a major driving force behind stress, and the fact is that more and more people suffer not knowing what to do or how to manage it.
In our society today, we experience stress in many different ways. This stress could come from a job, financial struggles, health concerns, or personal relationships – just to name a few. But we live in a constantly connected world, so it becomes more difficult for us to get rid of the stress. Unfortunately, when our stress levels go unchecked, they can create long-term damage to our bodies.
How to Manage Stress
Regular chiropractic visits can help release stored tensions in the body, relieve the symptoms of stress, and reduce its long-term damages. Each of these benefits helps take the body out of its “fight or flight” mode and allows it to return to a natural and balanced state of being. The benefit that you will experience when you receive regular Chiropractic Care is a higher level of adaptability to life’s stresses, which directly results in a higher functioning nervous system and a better quality of life.
Chiropractic adjustments have the potential to manage stress through several mechanisms. For example, adjusting the spine releases tension in the muscles. The body achieves the state of relaxation that goes on to improve blood flow. By adjusting the spine and tackling the interference in the nervous system, chiropractic enhances the flow of messages to the brain, thus improving mood and promoting relaxation.
Just picture what your life would look like if you were better equipped to manage daily stress. Would you have fewer headaches, be more alert, or have experienced a more positive outlook on life? Whatever that picture looks like, we’re here to help! We find, locate, and correct the stress in the spine that is causing interference between the brain and the body. We then deliver a very gentle and scientific chiropractic adjustment to remove that interference and allow the body to function at a higher level.
Unlike other methods and approaches, Chiropractic adjustments bring balance, harmony, and organization to the body. The mission of a chiropractor is not just to help reduce the stress you’re experiencing at the moment but allowing your body the opportunity to adapt to it.
In other words, Chiropractic Care can make you more resilient to negative stimuli that induce stress. Being more resilient is crucial in adapting to stress and minimizing its physical and mental health effects.
