Cary Chiropractor Talks about Wellness Care

Our bodies are hardwired to respond to stress in one of two ways…FIGHT or FLIGHT.

This response is designed to help you survive a stressful situation like a tiger chasing you. This response was perfect for the primitive man. Today our stress isn’t tigers, it’s finances, an overbearing boss, a strained relationship, technology, traffic, death of a loved one, moving, and so forth. The literal response of FIGHT or FLIGHT is not appropriate or even legal in some of these situations. As a result, the stress physiologically builds up and impacts our health.

Some of the long term impacts of chronic stress in Cary are accelerated aging, decreased insulin sensitivity, low libido, slower wound repair, increased heart rate, and elevated blood pressure.

So how should we honor our physiology as we respond to our every day stress. The healthiest way to respond to stress is to MOVE! Exercise as a simple as a walk can help your body to check off that box of fight/flight.

Chiropractic Can Help!

Chiropractic is a perfect way to help you adapt to stress. First of all the adjustment checks off the movement box by creating healthy MOVEMENT in the spine. Secondly, the adjustment allows your brain to release endorphins and enkephalins. These are the natural feel good hormones. This is one of the reasons a patient will often feel an immediate sensation of relaxation after being adjusted. Third and most important, the adjustment reduces stress on the nervous system allowing it to control and co-ordinate your bodily functions more efficiently.

So in summary, stress is everywhere and you will need to respond to it one of two ways FIGHT or FLIGHT. Chiropractic is perfectly positioned as a way to help your body adapt to stress more efficiently so you can stay healthy.
