Stress

The way in which you manage stress throughout your life can have a substantial impact on your health and wellbeing. Modern living has created unnatural stress that the body can no longer adapt to at a certain point. In individuals with trouble coping, this can potentially lead to issues such as inflammatory or immune problems, in addition to neurotransmitter imbalances. The way in which we deal with stress is also something to consider; certain individuals are able to cope with stress in a more effective way than others.

A New Scientific Approach to Managing Stress

Looking in to the potential cause of stress is essential in resolving the associated symptoms. Making an effort to reduce the stressors commonly present in everyday life is important, as well as providing support to help your body better deal with stress. Laboratory evaluation of neurotransmitter levels can lead your healthcare practitioner to suggest targeted amino acid therapy customized to your test results as well as your symptoms.

Symptoms

  • Difficulty coping
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Hypertension
  • Irritable bowel
  • Gastric ulcers
  • Road rage
  • Anger

3 Forms of Stress

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!

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

Physical Stress

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

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

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 vertebral subluxation, chiropractic care may help.

Stress can’t be eliminated, but regular chiropractic care may help you better accommodate and adapt to it. Give us a call at (925) 829-8484.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been seeing Dr. Jon for 11 years. When I began seeing him, my spine curved in the opposite direction of how it should. It is now curving in the right direction. Dr. Jon is extremely knowledgeable about chiropractic. He is holistic in his approach to better health. I highly recommend Dr. Jon."
