The world today is experiencing ridiculous levels of stress, so much so that we now regard abnormal levels of stress as relatively normal. Stress is a part of any adult’s everyday life and can take many different forms:
1) Physical stress from falls, poor posture, repetitive motions, long work weeks, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, playing sport and accidents.
2) Emotional stress like fear, grief, anger, relationship issues or seemingly impossible deadlines and economic woes create incredible pressures which affects our physiology, posture and emotional state.
3) Chemical stress (poor nutrition, medications, tobacco, alcohol, preservatives, environmental pollution such as herbicides, insecticides and other toxic substances) also affect our nervous system, muscle tone and spine, putting even more stress on the body.
Chiropractic can’t eliminate the stress of modern adult life, but it can help improve your capacity to accommodate it and therefore improve your overall well-being.
