What better to talk about on a Friday than about stress! We hope everyone going into the weekend can relax from a busy week of stress and hard work!
There is a couple of factors and actual things YOU can do to help limit stress on the body as much as possible.
5. Chiropractic and Massage
Today we will be discussing how Chiropractic and Massage can help reduce stress on the body... including the nervous system, muscles and joints.
Stress within the spine can be from a number of factors including (genetics, injuries, improper movement, and posture). This stress within the joints on the spine are called Subluxations. This means the joints are misaligned and are not moving properly.... that can cause stress and pressure on the surrounding area and nerves.
This ultimately can affect the nervous system, remember your nervous system controls everything throughout your body. So when unnecessary stress is placed on the spine... this affects you physically but also emotionally because of the symptoms of pain and discomfort.
Massage is a great One-Two punch combination with Chiropractic to combat the issues from both sides... with chiropractic you are dealing with the bones and joints. Massage you are dealing with more of the muscle directly. Massage can help limit the amount of tension and muscle strain and knots.
Regular Chiropractic treatment and massage promotes the bodies naturally healing abilities.
The depiction of the second image shows your nervous system displayed as a battery eventually over time from... physical stress, emotional stress, and injuries can wear and drain that battery down.
Making sure all the points listed above are focused on, is a sure way to help reduce stress on the spine and nervous system and keep your battery as full as possible!
