Signs of Stress

Stress can be the root cause of many health problems and may manifest itself through a wide variety of symptoms. Your chiropractor can use different techniques to help you to reduce stress and live a healthier life.

Symptoms of stress:

Fatigue:

If you have fatigue, you may be tired, exhausted, or depressed. Fatigue is often a sign that you are under physical or emotional stress. It can be caused by many different factors, including diet, medications, activity levels, and loneliness. Many people suffer from fatigue, and getting rid of it can be a life-changing experience.

Headaches:

Headaches are quite common. Most people that suffer from them just take aspirin, but this only hides the symptoms and does not cure the problem that is causing the headaches. If the problem is left unsolved, the headaches will keep recurring. Often, spinal misalignment or stress can be at the root of headaches, but luckily, your chiropractor can fix the foundational cause and help keep headaches from coming back.

Sleep Disturbances:

Do you sometimes feel tired even after a full nights sleep? You may be suffering from sleep disturbances, which can occur throughout the night without you even being aware of them. There are many causes of sleep disturbances, and your chiropractor can help determine what the cause is in your particular case and then remedy it.

Sinus and Allergies:

Your immune system protects you from a number of external elements, including dust and pollen. Symptoms typically associated with allergies (such as watery eyes, sneezing, and runny nose) may indicate that your immune system is not functioning properly. Allergies are typically treated with anti-histamines, but these only suppress the symptoms and are not a real cure. Stress can sometimes cause weakness in the immunes system, but due to the relationship between the nervous system and the immune system, your chiropractor can help to cure allergies rather than just masking the symptoms.

Mood Swings:

Suffering from mood swings, being irritable and getting angry over insignificant things, can cause problems for both you and those around you. Medical doctors often approach mood swings by prescribing medications, many of which cause side effects that may be worse than the actual symptoms that they are seeking to cure. Because mood swings are often caused by some kind of deficiency in the body, your chiropractor can help to solve the problem through a program of diet, exercise, and supplements.

General Pain:

Pain is often a sign that something in your body is not functioning properly. Many people just wait for the pain to go away, but this does not always happen. There are two types of pain: acute pain is caused by a specific injury such as a sprain or broken bone chronic pain is ongoing and does not always have such obvious causes. Acute pain usually goes away as the body heals, but chronic pain does not. Many people treat chronic pain with painkillers, but this just masks symptoms and can have many negative side effects. Your chiropractor can help figure out the cause of your chronic pain and treat the actual problem without resorting to medications of surgery.
