Community Submission: Solutions for Stress & Anxiety
By Dr. Byren Bell
Everyone knows the feeling. Your muscles tighten up, each breath is shorter than the last, and your blood starts to boil. Task after task, list after list, it feels like you don’t even know what to do or where in the world to start.
Stress and anxiety are nearly unavoidable in this day and age. A recent study discovered nearly 90% of all primary care doctor visits are related to stress related complaints. Stress rears its ugly head in ways both seen and unseen; noticeably, we can feel how our decision making process is compromised, how our emotional stability wavers, and often a creeping panic arises within.
But the scary stuff happens below the surface: higher blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease, and other cardiovascular complications.
The BEST way to combat stress is to live proactively. This can be done in several ways: regular exercise, a balanced diet, massage therapy, and chiropractic treatment. Every method carries unique benefits for the body, which demands us to incorporate each aspect into client programming. Nevertheless, we center our treatment around chiropractic care.
Without routine adjustments, we inhibit the body from the preforming the appropriate healing needed as we fight daily physical and mental stresses that plague the body. Our care allows the spine to maintain proper alignment and, therefore, gives the brain a clear line of communication with the central nervous system – allowing us to manage our stress and reach our true potential, over the holidays.
