At Back in Balance Wellness Center, we have been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Ellsworth, ME, and Bangor, ME for many years. We offer chiropractic care for stress injuries caused by chronic stress.
If left untreated, chronic stress will have long-lasting effects and cause severe health problems such as:
- Heart and blood vessel complications
- Increased heart rate
- High blood pressure
- Muscle tension
- Body aches
- Increased risk of stroke and heart attack
Stress makes a person feel on edge, unhappy and isolated. The first step in fighting stress is to find the root cause. Stress can stem from PTSD, work, or major life events. Whatever the cause, stress needs to be treated before can be addressed. Unfortunately, with all the negative side effects of stress, it will eventually cause physical pain. If pain is felt in the body, then an injury may follow.
As mentioned, stress takes a physical toll on the body if left untreated. It will affect muscles, tendons, and even bones. Tendonitis is a common symptom of chronic stress that affects the tendons. Our tendons are what connect our bones to muscles, so when they are inflamed an injury can occur. Tendonitis will affect everyday life such as holding a cup of coffee or typing on a computer. No one deserves to live on edge and be in constant pain due to stress. There are many options, such as medication and therapy. However, chiropractic care provides many of the same benefits and does not involve prescription medication.
Chiropractic care is a great way to relieve stress by relaxing the body. Tension will continue to build in the body from stress and chiropractic practices will help relieve that tension. This is a popular form of holistic care to help reduce chronic stress. The practice aims to release the natural hormones and endorphins already present in the body.
This will enable a biological approach to treating stress. When your muscles and mind are relaxed, then it will be easier for the body to rest. Relaxing the body will allow the heart to slow down and lower your blood pressure. The best part about the entire experience is the lack of negative side effects.
