Stress

Stress can’t be eliminated, but regular chiropractic care can help you better accommodate and adapt to it. There are three kinds of stress we address in our office.  We call them the 3 T’s:

Instead of fainting or going unconscious, think of a subluxation as your body’s attempt at managing stress.

Physical Stress (Traumas)

Repetitive motions (painting the ceiling), postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted) and whiplash injuries from a car accident are physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Even being born!

Mental Stress (Thoughts)

Ever faced an impossible deadline at work? Or grieved the loss of a loved one? Notice the posture of someone who is depressed. Frustration, or a sense of powerlessness at work are common forms of emotional stress.

Chemical Stress (Toxins)

Today’s environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone.

When your body reacts by “tripping a circuit breaker” and causing subluxation, chiropractic care can help.
