3 Ways Chiropractic Care Provides Much Needed Stress Treatments

If you’re experiencing chronic headaches, muscle pains, or other conditions, such as insomnia or mood changes, then you may require a carefully designed stress treatment plan that helps you not only relax but find the relief you need. Chiropractors perform several stress treatments that help both the body and mind find relief and relaxation. Here are three common chiropractic treatments that help millions of individuals find relief from their chronic stress.

1. Massage Therapy

Massage therapy uses several different types of massage to help not only reduce a patient’s pain but help them relax. Studies have shown that massage is an effective stress treatment option and can help with:

  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Soft tissue injuries and more

2. Chiropractic Adjustments 

Spinal manipulation, more frequently known as an “adjustment,” is the process of applying gentle, controlled force onto the vertebrae of the spine. This helps to realign the spine and help take the pressure off the surrounding muscles, discs of the spin, and relax the body as it moves back into its natural positioning. 

3. Therapeutic Exercise/Physical Rehabilitation

Chiropractors understand that exercise is vital to a patient’s overall health and wellbeing. When it comes to stress, treatment plans often include some form of therapeutic exercise to help improve their cardiovascular health and help decrease their stress levels through the release of endorphins, also known as the “feel-good” hormone.
