Stress Relief Chiropractor in San Diego, CA
San Diego Chiropractor Provides Stress Relief for Pain Relief
Stress should come with a “hazardous-to-your-health” warning. Between 75 to 90 percent of doctor visits stem from stress-related health problems, and 70 percent of Americans report regularly experiencing physical pain associated with emotional stressors. Painful stress comes from as many different sources as there are people, and it can cause or complicate health problems ranging from headaches, neck pain and back pain to diabetes, hypertension, asthma and depression. If stress hurts, your San Diego chiropractor can help you get stress relief.
What Kinds of Stress Can Chiropractic Care Relieve?
Because stress is a multi-faceted health risk, chiropractor Dr. Herfindahl provides multi-faceted stress and pain relief treatment options. Chiropractic care and our other treatment techniques can go to the core of most stressors:
Emotional Stress Relief
Work, school, family and personal-life stresses can cause physical pain. When you’re worried, you might hunch more. Your shoulders and neck tense up. You may clench your jaw. You might stand or sit in other non-ergonomic positions for hours. Stress can distract you, increasing your accident injury risk. Gentle chiropractic care and massage therapy can help provide both emotional and physical stress relief.
Physical Stress Relief
A physical injury can also cause emotional stress. Persistent painful symptoms from a car accident, a sports injury or a bulging or herniated disc can debilitate you so much that you can’t do the things you need or want to do. This leads to more stress on top of the pain. Skilled chiropractic care with Dr. Herfindahl, as well as our other complementary treatment options like cold laser therapy, spinal decompression and massage therapy, can provide natural pain relief that will deflate these stressors as well.
Chemical Stress Relief
Again, the physical connects to the mental: Years of poor nutrition or exposure to harmful substances in the environment, either intentionally or unintentionally, can mess with brain and body chemistry to cause a myriad of health problems. Chiropractic care, massage therapy, nutritional counseling and lifestyle adjustments can alleviate many of these chemical stressors to provide welcome relief.
