Stress is an inescapable fact of life. We all experience stress to some degree, even in our every day living.  To some, stress is the spice of life, but to others it is a tormenting aggravation. Stress, even though it sounds like a difficult word to deal with, is not always a bad thing. Stress can be a good experience that excites and invigorates when handled properly. We experience stress when trying to cross a busy street, when we are exposed to changes in temperature and even when we shop for gifts. It is not the stress that is problematic, it is how it is coped with and how prepared you are to take it on that is the deciding factor in its effect on your life, mind and body.

What Causes Stress

Things that cause stress are called stressors. They can be as simple as a fly buzzing around your head, or as complicated as facing major surgery. When you face a stressor your body reacts in several steps. First, the fight or flight impulse begins as messages are sent from the brain to the endocrine system. If the stress stops, you return to normal. If it continues, the resistance stage begins. Your body attempts to adapt to the stress by running from the fight or preparing to fight. If the stress continues you may become exhausted, and you body becomes worn down. This may cause ill health and chronic disease.

Chronic stress can cause many effects. You are never able to completely relax, you feel drained of energy, susceptibility to colds increase, infection, ulcers, digestive related problems, high blood pressure, asthma, heart disease, arthritis, and premature aging may also occur.

People who have high stress levels are more likely to have a lower immune system. In 1988, a study conducted showed that there is a significant increase in immune cells when the mind and body are trained to deal with stress.

The Medical Approach to Stress

The medical approach to stress treatment focuses on drugs.  Tranquilizers and other prescribed drugs may reduce stress, however it is not a solution to the problem.

Stress Solutions

Companionship is one of the most effective means of reducing stress levels. Studies show that having a companion, weather it be a person or pet, helps to combat stress.

Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms.
