Holiday Stress can Be Beat!

Our bodies are a beautiful work of art, meant to be able to manage itself through a process known as homeostasis. However, the heightened stress so often experienced during the holidays can poorly influence the nervous system that controls this important process, resulting in our bodies feeling worn down and tired. Lucky for you, there are some easy ways to keep you feeling great this season instead of getting sick.


Stress is a key culprit in leaving your body vulnerable to feeling sick, especially during the holidays. This is because when the body is stressed, it can’t maintain that homeostasis process as well. The resulting symptoms range from things such as aches and pains to mental fatigue or even a cold. But that’s why Better Chiropractic is here. New research indicates that chiropractic can go a long way towards positively affecting key components of your health just like having a healthy diet or sleep would. That means better being able to enjoy your holiday activities.


When you make sure you take care of your body by utilizing Chiropractic, exercising, and getting adequate rest, you can bust that stress and allow your body to better take care of itself. You’ll feel happy, healthy, and energetic, allowing you to do more of what you love with those you love. That is what the Christmas season is all about, and we’re here to help make sure that happens.


Here are a few things to remember:


·       Stress is often carried in the neck and shoulders

·       Chiropractic has been shown to reduce muscular tension in the neck and shoulders

·       Research suggests that those who receive Chiropractic care ten to have lower levels of stress.


We wish you a Merry Christmas and hope that if you haven’t been in in a while, you’ll take this chance to make an appointment.
