We are living through a time of great stress that can probably only be compared to times of war and the Great Depression. COVID-19 has caused massive job loss, financial stress, social isolation and food insecurity. We have lost more than ½ of a million Americans to COVID-19 so many families are also dealing with intense grief and loss. The stress of the time in which we are living has been building for a year, and it is having a real impact on people in our communities. Caron Chiropractic can help relieve stress both in the short-term with immediate treatments and in the long-term by providing strategies to manage the stress and prevent it from building.
Managing Stress Headache Pain
One familiar and common symptom of stress is headaches. Most people experience a headache now and then, and they usually either go away on their own or with the help of some kind of over the counter pain reliever. However, prolonged stress can lead to persistent headaches that come on at the most inconvenient times and which do not respond to a pain reducer as you might expect. Chiropractic treatment can make the difference you have been looking for and finally put your headaches in the rearview mirror.
Our staff will develop an individualized treatment plan that incorporates chiropractic care, massage, and acupuncture. We can train your body to respond to stress differently with one very welcome result being headaches that are less frequent, less severe, or even disappear altogether. Your headaches may originate as a result of stress build-up, but this can become even more intense because of misalignment in your neck and back. Chiropractic adjustment restores proper alignment of your spine, which in turn reduces the likelihood of headaches occurring as they had before.
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment on Stress Headache Relief
The spine is supported by complex systems of musculature which respond very well to massage therapy. When muscles are under constant stress, they can become tight and sore which restricts blood flow. This, in turn, can add to the intensity of headaches. Massage relieves that stress. Acupuncture is a great way to increase blood flow and to help your body’s self-healing mechanisms kick into gear. The combination of these treatment methods is highly effective for reducing the frequency and intensity of headaches without having to rely on medications.
