Reduce Your Stress Levels by Visiting Orr Chiropractic Center in the Greater Columbus Area
Generally when we feel overwhelmed or overloaded with tasks, we use the term “stress.” Stress is essentially the feeling of pressure. Anything that poses a challenge or a threat to our wellbeing is a stress, and “stressors” are agents or catalysts that cause the stress to occur.
Stressors can be caused by physical sources like accidents and bad posture, chemical sources such as poor food choices and smoking, or emotional sources such as relationship and occupational stress.
Understanding Your Stress
At Orr Chiropractic Center we know that there are a lot of factors that come into play when discussing your personal health. Finding the right way to treat your pain or symptoms isn’t the only thing we do at Orr Chiropractic. Dr. Julia and her staff are not focused solely on providing instant relief, but rather their goal is to provide the foundation for long term healing and healthy lifestyle changes. Relieving your symptoms is the ultimate outcome, therefore we use tests and questionnaires to get to know you and determine the best solutions for you.
For example, physical symptoms of stress usually include rise in blood pressure or heart rate, rapid breathing, muscle tension, and headaches. These symptoms could be a result of having too many activities to manage and not giving yourself time to wind down. Something as simple as setting aside time in your day to exercise or even get a massage could help to reset your body and alleviate some of those stress symptoms.
Emotional warning signs of stress can be memory problems, anxiety, inability to concentrate, moodiness and irritability, agitation, depression, aches and pains, loss of sex drive, eating more or less, sleeping to much or too little, isolating oneself, and many more. With these symptoms, we want to find the areas of your body that could use the healing touch of chiropractic and focus on improving your strength from within your body so that you are better able to handle exterior factors.
How Will Chiropractic Minimize Your Stress?
On a simple level, the spinal joints, neck muscles, and surrounding areas are strongly affected by stress. Chiropractic care helps reduce spinal and muscular problems by removing any interference – allowing the body to heal itself properly. By creating healthier joints and muscles, your body is able to support itself and positively react to stressors instead of causing more complications.
Orr Chiropractic also specializes in nutritional and other therapies for stress. Combining various factors of chiropractic (adjustments and the appropriate diet and exercise regimen) we can work with you to help keep your body free from the harmful effects of stress.
