Stress Management

Stress can play havoc with your nerves and muscles, causing backaches, tension headaches, or migraines [1]

Often we see patients who come in with a variety of different aches and pains and it’s our job to determine whether this condition has occurred due to a physical, chemical or emotional stress, or all three.

Doctors have pondered the connection between our mental and physical health for centuries. Until the 1800s, most believed that emotions were linked to disease and advised patients to visit spas or seaside resorts when they were ill. There is evidence now that mind-body medicine can help improve psychological functioning and quality of life, and may help to ease symptoms of disease [2]

One example; a regular patient saw us and was limping from severe back pain. It was only when the chiropractor asked how things were going in her life that the patient released some tension caused and linked the emotional stress they were having with the pain that the body was expressing.

The body-mind connection is very powerful. Your brain sends signals throughout your body to communicate to organs travelling through your nerves. As the spinal cord is the core pathway from the brain, any injuries or pressure on the spinal cord or nerves can disrupt normal functions and send signals back to your brain that something is wrong.

Chiropractors adjust the spine so the body is able to heal itself without the need of drugs. We treat the body as a whole which means physical, chemical and emotional stresses. We offer stress relieving techniques, breathing exercises (see relevant info below on Buteyko) and promote positive attitude to help you manage daily strains in life by integrating the mind-body connection.
