No one likes to experience high levels of stress.  Too much stress in our lives can take a significant toll on our health and well-being.  When the stresses of life such as relationships, work pressure, financial struggles, or injuries that take a physical toll on our bodies become too much to bear, we can become overwhelmed and stressed out.  Thankfully, we don’t have to cope with stress on our own.  Chiropractic care can minimize anxiety and reduce stress by improving spinal health and the function of the central nervous system.

The 3 Main Types of Stress

There are 3 common types of stress that can affect our lives and our health: physical stress, chemical stress, and emotional stress.  Physical stress is anything that physically takes a toll on our bodies.  It can range from simply sitting for too long at a desk every day to injuries such as pinched nerves, car accidents, or chronic neck pain.  Any type of physical issue that arises can put additional stress on the body and lead to health concerns.  Emotional stress is something we are probably all familiar with.  This is when our thoughts and feelings get the best of us.  Emotional stress can be caused by any number of things beyond our control, such as kids, work, or relationships.  Chemical stress may be an unfamiliar topic that we don’t even realize can even affect how our bodies function.  What we eat, what we breathe, and what we put into and on our bodies does affect our health.  Too many toxins in the body will lead to stress and poor health.  If stress has taken over your life and you are beginning to notice the negative health effects associated with it, it may be time to consider chiropractic care from a Charlotte chiropractor.

How Can Chiropractic Care Reduce My Stress?

In order to reduce stress, we must first focus on taking care of ourselves.  Neurologically-based chiropractic care improves the function of the central nervous system to ensure our bodies can function optimally.  When we are stressed, we don’t eat right, can’t sleep well, and in general, don’t always think to take care of ourselves.  But chiropractic care can improve digestion, promote healthy sleep habits, and increase immune health so that we can ensure we are doing our best to live a healthy lifestyle without putting added stress on the body.  Additionally, spinal misalignments can disrupt nerve communication and cause imbalance within the body.  This may lead to inflammation, a decreased immune system, and even higher levels of stress as the body tries to cope.  Thankfully, regular chiropractic care from Charlotte chiropractor Dr. Grant Lisetor can remove misalignments to restore nerve function so our bodies can fight off sickness and deal with stress.  This improves overall health and releases endorphins, natural stress relieving chemicals that can decrease stress levels.  Case studies show that a staggering 70% of people who turn to chiropractic care experience a decrease in stress levels and feel they are better able to cope with daily life.  Dr. Grant Lisetor of Greater Life Chiropractic will give gentle chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal health so you can see stress levels reduced and experience overall health.

If you suffer from stress, whether emotional, chemical, or physical, find relief with chiropractic care.  Schedule a consultation with Dr. Grant Lisetor of Greater Life Chiropractic for stress reduction and improved health.
