AICA Altanta’s Chiropractors Can Help You Avoid Stress This Holiday Season

Nov 9, 2016

Stress is an unfortunate part of living in the modern world.

For those who live throughout Atlanta, you know first hand just how stressful things can get during the winter holiday season.

Between being stuck in traffic for hours at a time and dealing with other holiday shoppers, it’s easy to understand why so many people develop mild to severe anxiety.

Fortunately, residents throughout Atlanta can avoid becoming stressed out by visiting the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta!

Chiropractic Care for Stress Management

There are three fundamental components to which you recognize stress. These three elements are your:

  • Body
  • Emotions
  • Environment

Emphasize that comes through your body includes exhaustion, poor dietary habits, and illness.

Emotional stress differs from this as it refers to how you interpret specific details and events that take place throughout your regular routine. What’s interesting and different about emotional stress is that you have direct control over how much tension you expose yourself to, unlike physical or environmental stress.

Environmental stress speaks to how your surroundings affect your well-being and mental state. An example of this would be if Atlanta’s pollution levels were so high that it started to affect your respiratory system negatively.

How Stress Affects Your Health

Understanding how stress develops is important for knowing how to avoid particular triggers that cause tension and anxiety.

When you experience a significant amount of stress for prolonged periods, your body’s “fight or flight” mechanism is triggered. This causes your sympathetic nervous system to become energized, and your heart starts to beat at a faster rate, while your other senses are heightened.

This response is natural and allows you to make immediate decisions that are meant to keep you safe.

However, being exposed to too much stress can be detrimental to your long-term health.

Studies show that those who suffer from chronic stress or anxiety tend to also experience:

  • High blood pressure
  • Muscle tissue damage
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Heart attacks

How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Reduce Stress

The concept of Chiropractic care focuses on spinal health, which is the root of your nervous system.

When chronic stress causes significant muscle tension, subluxations begin to develop throughout your spine, causing some complications that ultimately prevent your nerves and blood from circulating properly.

Receiving regular Chiropractic Adjustments allows your body to remain completely of such subluxations, which means that your internal systems can properly function.

Removing these subluxations is critical for reducing personal stress and the type of impact it has on your ability to feel and function normally.
