Stress Relief with Your Butte Chiropractor

The body and mind are so closely linked; statistics show that anywhere from 75-90 percent of doctor visits come from the health-damaging effects of too much stress! Can a chiropractor provide stress relief? Absolutely.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Stress Relief?

It is important to understand that stress and physical pain travel a two-way street in our bodies—and chiropractic care can help manage the “traffic”:

Neck Pain & Tension Headaches

Muscles automatically tighten as the fight-or-flight response is activated during stress; chronic stress causes consistent muscle tension, especially in the neck and shoulders. This can cause slouching, poor posture and force vertebrae out of alignment, straining soft tissues. One of the most common symptoms of this kind of stress is neck pain and tension headaches.

Respiratory System

Acute and chronic stress taxes the respiratory system as it promotes only shallow breathing preventing efficient delivery of oxygen to the body and mind. Stress can also trigger asthma attacks in some people.

Long-Term Stress & Poor Habits

Long-term stress can trigger poor eating habits, lower sleep quality and adversely impact the immune, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and endocrine systems.

Chiropractic Treatments for Stress and Pain Relief

Not surprisingly, these health problems and the pain they cause can turn up stress levels even more. Our chiropractors can help you lower stress and pain levels very effectively so you can improve your health and quality of life:

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Whether stress is causing neck or back pain and headaches, or those pains are causing stress, our doctors address both. Correcting spinal alignment with precise and gentle chiropractic adjustments relieves pain and reduces its accompanying stresses. Chiropractic care also release pinched nerves to improve the nervous systems ability to direct the body’s various systems so that they all work better together; this gives you fewer things to worry about.
