Not all stress is bad. A 20-minute workout at the gym for a fit 25-year-old is good stress. The same workout for your 75-year-old grandmother would likely be bad stress!
If you’re looking for a chiropractor for stress relief, then you’ve come to the right place. We focus on helping our patients in two ways. First, we improve their ability to adapt to stress by improving the function and balance of their central nervous system, which governs and manages stress for us. Second, we use lifestyle-based education and empowerment to teach patients how to lower stress. This can improve their lifestyles by lowering and lessening the stressors in their lives.
Physical Stress – Repetitive motions (painting the ceiling) postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted) and whiplash injuries are physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Even being born is considered a type of physical stress.
Chemical Stress –Today’s environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, GMO foods, tobacco, and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system. Some of these may feel like they’re providing stress relief, but in reality, they could be doing more harm than good.
Life Stress – Have you ever been faced with an impossible deadline at work or grieved the loss of a loved one? Have you felt frustration, anger, or depression? If so, you’re not alone. These are common forms of life stress.
Stress can’t be eliminated, but regular chiropractic care may help you better accommodate and adapt to it. We can measure the amount of stress on your central nervous system and track your progress with our computerized assessment (click here for more info on technology). Using a chiropractor for stress management could go a long way towards maintaining long-term good health.
If improving your central nervous system’s ability to adapt to stress makes sense to you, as opposed to simply treating symptoms of stress, call or email us for an appointment today. We look forward to helping you in DuPage County and the surrounding communities in IL.
