Stress is constantly confronting our body’s ability to function in its normal state. You have two options to approach the harmful effects from daily stress: lower the amount of stress that’s affecting you, or, increase your resistance to stress
The approach to chiropractic as it relates to your wellbeing is proactive in that it increases your resistance to stress. Each chiropractic adjustment is a process of strengthening the body to better adapt to the invasive stress that robs the body of its normal function.
Here are four effective ways you can increase your resistance to stress:
- Recovery: Pay attention to the amount of sleep you get each night, this is when the body’s physiology recovers from daily wear and tear.
- Nutrition: Proper nutrition and adequate water are the building blocks for the trillions of cells that form the tissues and organs that make up your body. This is a simple but profound way to build up an armor to the day to day grind.
- Exercise: Movement is life. Find time and energy to create more movement in your day. Stand up, walk more and enjoy the pains of getting stronger.
- Chiropractic: Chiropractic adjustments can amplify the body’s ability to adapt to stress. Your spinal integrity is an integral part of the body that influences coordination to stressors on the body.
Chiropractic is concerned with the integrity of the spinal joints so the bones that house and protect the vital neurological communication for your entire body can be transmitted from the brain to the body without interference. When dysfunction is located within the spine due to vertebral subluxation, the communication is less than optimal between the brain and body.
Chiropractic care can help restore proper spinal integrity, which can enhance the innate recuperative power of the body to function at its optimal potential due to the relationship between structure and function that is coordinated by the neurological system. When stress is high, focus on ways to increase your resistance to it.
Consider regular chiropractic as one of your weekly habits to enhance your quality of life!
