Are you stressed out?

We are dedicated to helping people in the Lake Norman area find relief Naturally!

Stress is known as the “silent killer” and is the number one trigger of a heart attack. Heart attacks kill more Americans in the United States than any other disease. We all face stress on a day-to-day basis, but how you deal with it can have significant effects on your health. It’s important to recognize how stress affects you, learn how to deal with it, and develop healthy habits to ease your stress.

Upper cervical chiropractors “get your head on straight” by aligning the top two bones in your neck so your brain can communicate with your body with no nerve interference. Life is stressful enough, you don’t need a neck misalignment to add to it.

Our Bodies Don’t Like Stress

Mental stress can affect the body with pain and inflammation that will manifest in specific bodily systems.

That means it can come with digestive issues, abnormal bowel movements, sleep and mood disorders, depression, anxiety, and more.

Adjusting the Upper Cervical Spine Will Help

Here is a quick reminder about what an upper cervical chiropractor can do to alleviate harmful symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression.

A correction to the upper cervical spine can help symptoms of stress through:

  • Ensuring the atlas vertebra are properly aligned and not pressing on the vagus nerve
  • Stimulating the vagus nerve to reduce and prevent inflammation
  • Regulating the vagus nerve and ensuring the organs throughout the body have healthy function
  • Relieving pain by activating the body’s innate relaxation response
  • Ensuring the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems are balanced correctly

All of these beneficial effects of an upper cervical correction can reduce pain and inflammation throughout the entire body, perhaps even mental effects of being in pain, like further anxiety and depression.
