Relieving stress with physical therapy…
Over lifting is not the only kind of stress that can hurt you neck and back pain. Mental or emotional stress can be just as destructive, and may require treatment to help relieve stress that is causing you physical pain. In the short term, the tension created by emotional stress can give you a backache; in the long term, it can set you up for a serious back injury, among other, more severe health problems. At Align 33 Chiropractic in Northridge California we have physical therapy treatments that can help relieve emotional stress and in turn physical stress.
Experience the benefits of acupuncture for stress relief…
Research shows that the effects of acupuncture have decreased the level of stress hormones in those patients undergoing acupuncture treatment compared to those who haven’t. The body’s stress response is commonly triggered by two main pathways, which produce hormones such as cortisol and norepinephrine that are known triggers of anxiety and stress. Once activated, the system causes the heart to beat faster and the senses to go on alert. The use of acupuncture can target these pathways and as a result can help reduce levels of stress. Each individual will require a different treatment plan and length, this will be determined during your consultation with our team of professionals.
Consider a therapeutic massage to relieve stress…
Therapeutic massages can lower your heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles and increase the production of endorphins (your body’s natural feel good chemical). During your therapeutic massage treatment the relaxation can help make chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress easier to overcome. Studies show that even a single one and half hour message can lower your heart rate, cortisol levels and insulin levels which can contribute to relieve unwanted and unhealthy stress.
In fact, stress relief is one of the first benefits that come to mind when thinking of massage therapy. It’s also a key component for anyone trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle.
