You Can't Avoid It

Avoid stress? Impossible! To be alive is to be under stress. But stress is not even necessarily bad for you. Any emotion, any activity causes stress. The same stress which makes one person sick can be an invigorating experience for another.

What Happens When You Face Stress?

When you confront stress complicated things happen inside you; chemicals and nerve impulses create the general adaptation syndrome or G.A.S., which has three stages:

  1. First is the "call to arms"--the alarm reaction. Messages stream from your brain to your endocrine (hormonal) system in a "fight or flight" response. If the stress stops, you revert to normal.

  2. If the stress continues, you enter the stage of resistance--your body tries to adapt to the stress; it puts up the barricades, so to speak. You run from or fight the threat, you tense your muscles, you raise your fever, and you struggle to prevail. If the stress stops, you revert to normal.

  3. If the stress still continues you may enter the stage of exhaustion. Your system falls prey to ill health.

The Chiropractic Approach

Chiropractic care can help release deeply held stress. One of the simplest and easiest ways of stress reduction is having a chiropractic spinal adjustment.

Chiropractors are specially trained to free you from a severe, destructive, chronic stress: the vertebral subluxation complex (subluxation). A subluxation, or adjustment, is a very common, often painless distortion in your body that affects your nerves and spine, stressing you physically and emotionally.
