Chiropractic and Stress


Not all stress is bad. A 30-minute workout at the gym for a fit 21-year old is good stress. The same workout for your 60-year old grandfather would likely be bad stress!
Instead of fainting or going unconscious, think of a vertebral subluxation as your body's attempt at managing stress

Physical Stress

Repetitive motions (painting a wall), postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted) and whiplash injuries from a car accident are physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Or even sitting in front of a computer all day, or looking down at your hand held devices.  Even being born!

Chemical Stress

Today’s environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone.

Mental Stress

Ever faced an impossible deadline at work? Or grieved the loss of a loved one? Notice the posture of someone who is depressed. Frustration, or a sense of powerlessness at work are common forms of emotional stress.When your body reacts by “tripping a circuit breaker” and causing vertebral subluxation, chiropractic care may help.
Stress can’t be eliminated, but regular maintenance chiropractic care may help you better accommodate and adapt to it. Give us a call at (702) 277-1371. Check out our website at:
