Plagued by Stress? Las Vegas Chiropractor Can Help
Las Vegas residents… are you suffering from stress? A visit to your chiropractor might help.
That’s the conclusion of a study conducted by a team of researchers in Japan in 2011. Twelve male volunteers were recruited to investigate the effects of chiropractic spinal manipulation on the autonomic nervous system, which controls unconscious body functions, such as breathing.
PET scans were performed after the patients received a chiropractic neck adjustment. The result: Altered brain activity in the parts of the brain responsible for pain processing and stress reactions, and significantly reduced levels of cortisol, a hormone that helps the body manage stress. In addition, participants reported decreased stress and a better quality of life after treatment.
How does chiropractic care relieve stress? Simply, chronic stress leads to muscle tension and contraction. In turn, this creates uneven pressure on the bony structures of the body, which can cause spinal misalignments. Misalignments occur when one or more vertebrae shift out of position, interfering with the nerve impulses that carry messages from the brain through the spinal cord and out to all your organs and appendages.
Chiropractic adjustments and spinal rehabilitation release muscle tension, which allows the body return to a more balanced, relaxed state. Corrective chiropractic care also reduce spinal nerve irritation and improve blood circulation. The goal is to convince the brain to turn off the stress response so the body can begin healing.
