If you are like most people, you experience a plethora of stressors every day. From cranky customer service representatives to traffic snarls, your life can seem like one big pit of anxiety some days! In North York at Bayview Finch’s chiropractic clinic, we see every day how stress manifests itself in a physical form. Although stress is a psychological phenomenon, it places great problems on the body, such as:
• Causing people to hunch their shoulders and hold them in place, tightly.
• Creating an environment whereby individuals tense up, even in their sleep.
• Stopping the digestive system from working properly.
• Lowering the body’s natural immunities to diseases and colds.
• Lessening the desire to work out and “exercise away” the tensions of the day.
• Increasing blood pressure and causing headaches, body aches and even tooth aches.
People who are under stress should seriously consider regular visits to a chiropractic clinic like Bayview Finch. Highly individualized chiropractic treatments have been shown repeatedly to help men, women and even children better get a handle on the way stress affects their lives. Chiropractic care is based in science; unlike a massage (which definitely feels wonderful!), chiropractic actually puts the bones of the body back in correct alignment. Make no mistake – when they are misaligned for a period of time, it begins to take a terrible toll on the body… and eventually on the mind.
While going to your chiropractic clinic cannot take away all the things in your life that make you feel overwhelmed, it can improve your health. That’s often enough to make you better equipped to deal with the unexpected and take stress in stride.
