Stress Relief and Prevention

Stress Relief and Prevention from our Harrisburg PA Chiropractor

stress relief

Is stress getting you down? You are not alone. Stress affects many people in the United States, and stress can even cause negative physical and mental effects. Fortunately, our Harrisburg PA chiropractor can help relieve your stress and teach you how to prevent stress.

Stress is your body’s way of responding to a demand or threat. Psychologists say that stress is the feeling of strain, pressure, or other unpleasant emotion or feeling. Stress can also cause physical symptoms, such as tense muscles and increased blood pressure.

In small, limited doses, stress can be a good thing. Overwhelming stress or chronic stress, on the other hand, can cause ill health in the form of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Stress can even make you overeat, as your body tries to soothe stress through “comfort foods.”

About 77 percent of Americans answering a survey said they regularly experience physical symptoms of stress, and 73 percent said they regularly psychological symptoms of stress. The top causes of stress were job pressure, money, health, relationships, poor nutrition, media overload, and sleep deprivation.

Holding stress in can make you ill. Stress can cause you to tense your back muscles, and this can trigger back pain. Conversely, back pain from a misaligned spinal column can cause stress. Stress can cause serious mental and physical ailments – serious enough to keep people from working. In fact, employers pay upwards of $300 million annually in stress-related healthcare and missed work.

Fortunately, chiropractic care in Harrisburg PA can help.
