Stress is a normal part of everyday life. Many things that you do or experience, both good and bad, can cause stress to the body. However, if you cannot properly manage and cope with your stress and anxiety, it can have a negative impact on your entire body: mentally, physically, and emotionally.
It can also contribute to a host of other problems, including:
- Issues focusing or easily being distracted
- Irritability and feeling overwhelmed
- Fatigue and exhaustion
- Lowered libido
- Muscle aches and tension
- Neck and back pain
- Decreased or increased appetite
- Indigestion or acid reflux
Fortunately, there are things you can do to minimize the amount of stress you feel and lessen the impact it has on your life.
Services We Offer
A chiropractor can assist with managing pain effectively, which helps tremendously if pain is the main cause of your stress. He or she can also help you relax and reduce tension within your body. Here are a few of the services we offer that can help you get back to optimal health.
Chiropractic Care- Chiropractic care can help relieve many of the symptoms brought on by stress and anxiety. One of the most common techniques a chiropractor can perform is gentle, but effective manipulations. This can help restore the body’s balance and return alignment to the spine, alleviating pain, lessening tension, and restoring overall well-being.
Massage Therapy- Massage therapy is yet another treatment we offer to relieve pain, discomfort, and stress. It can help loosen tense muscles and promote relaxation, especially in those suffering from chronic conditions. It can also reduce inflammation, which can in turn improve the flow of oxygen throughout the blood and speed the healing process.
Spinal Decompression- Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. Doing this takes pressure off the spinal discs, which act as cushions between the vertebrae. As a result, pressure is relieved within the spinal structure and its surrounding nerves, providing you with relief. Elongating your spine additionally encourages the movement of necessary fluids and oxygen, thereby promoting healing.
Laser Therapy- MLS or (Multiwave Locked System) therapy uses a therapeutic laser wavelength to provide non-invasive pain relief. It combines the best of both low and high-powered laser treatments which gives the patient effective relief without any heat damage to their skin. When the laser penetrates the skin, it has an inflammatory and anesthetic effect. This too can alleviate pain and reduce stress within our patients.
Electroanalgesia (EA)- Additionally, EA is a pain management system similar to TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation) which reduces pain by applying a voltage of electricity through small electrodes placed over the skin. In electroanalgesia, precise dosages of electrical energy are applied to the peripheral nerves to dull and alleviate pain within the body.
