​Borio Chiropractic Health Center Discusses How to Deal With Stress

Stress has been with us since the beginning of time.  Every era has faced its share of threatening situations.  Today, the stress of careers, deadlines, conflicts, and the demands on our time and money take a huge toll on our health.

Just as a chain tends to break at its weakest link, we seem to exhibit stress and strain in the weakest areas of our bodies.  For some, it's an upset stomach.  For others, recurring headaches, back pain or muscle stiffness.  Still others respond with nervous twitches, allergic reactions, or sensitivities to chemicals.

Regardless of your particular response, the function of your nervous system is involved.  That's why chiropractic can be so helpful.  The chiropractic approach to stress is to help normalize the function of your nervous system by removing interferences caused by the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.  Finding the "weak links" in your spine (the major communication pathway of your nervous system) and helping restore better function can make a profound difference in your response to stress.

It may not be possible to remove the stress from a busy life, however with the help of your chiropractic doctor, you can respond better to unique challenges you face.  Your nervous system will be at its optimum level and your body will have an open communication to your body.

Funny Fact:  Baboons pick through one another's fur, a behavior known as social grooming, to relieve stress.
