Stress Reduction

Millions of Americans feel the negative effects of stress every day. In fact, many Americans suffer from chronic stress. Chronic stress can lead to severe health problems, such as:


  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders

There are many possible causes of stress. They can be physical, emotional, or even chemical. If you are stressed, it’s important that you do whatever you can to avoid the negative effects. Thankfully, there are also many ways to help relieve stress. One important way for stress reduction is with chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic Adjustments

When you go for an exam, the chiropractor will ask you questions and may ask you to walk to determine what particular issues are contributing to your stress and discomfort. The chiropractor can then lay out a plan to eliminate those issues through regular chiropractic adjustments. This is usually in the form of spinal manipulation. Although that term may sound scary, it is really just a therapeutic intervention performed on the joints along the spine.

Benefits of Receiving Chiropractic Adjustments:


  • Pain relief with one-time or regular adjustments
  • Reduced stress with regular adjustments
  • Lower blood pressure with chiropractic adjustments
  • Facilitate proper bowel functions
  • Relief from lower back pain
