How Chiropractic Treatments Reduce Stress

It’s that time of the year, the holidays are approaching and our family activities are in full force.

Did you know that one of the top chiropractic benefits is the ability to help alleviate chronic pain, a common physical manifestation of stress.  When you are stressed your muscles become tense which tends to lead to discomfort or pain.  Seeing a family chiropractor can correct this and relieve pressure on the nerves.

Chiropractic services have been shown to promote the production of “feel-good hormones” such as endorphins, dopamine, and oxytocin.  These positive hormones can help reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, which in turn helps us feel less stressed overall.

*Endorphins – natural pain-relieving and mood-enhancing hormones – helps promote relaxation and happiness

*Dopamine – gives you a feeling of pleasure, satisfaction, and motivation.  Dopamine also helps with mood, sleep, and concentration

*Oxytocin – often referred to as the “love hormone”. Oxytocin promotes relaxation, emotional well-being and reduces stress.

Outside of adjustments another top-notch way to combat internal stress and the havoc it causes is by a nutritious diet full of veggies (think soups, it’s the season!) low glycemic carbohydrates, high-quality protein, and supplementation!

The Doctor’s favorites are: 

Stress Plus – Gluten Free; a high-quality B-Complex with E, C and Biotin plus Valerian, Passiflora and Magnesium formulated to naturally support energy metabolism and nervous system health!
