We are all faced with stressors in our life, regardless of our age and the stage of our lives.
There are usually three different types of stressors that people identify with – physical, chemical and emotional.
Physical stress can result from an injury or a fall; chemical stress comes from the food and beverages that we consume or the pollution in the air; and emotional stress is due to events or situations in one’s life such as starting a new job, changing schools, moving or challenges in a relationship.
Tension can build up with greater stress levels, which often leads to joint restrictions in the spine. With the help of an experienced and knowledgeable chiropractor these restrictions, however can most often be remedied.
While most people are in tune or aware of their bodies, children in particular, seem to be able to identify more easily with aches and pains that aren’t associated with ordinary play and activity.
Muscle soreness is normal, but if your child complains of neck or back pain, headaches or ongoing tension, there could be an underlying problem that could potentially be treated with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is available for the entire family. While we can’t eliminate all the stress in a modern day household, we can help to alleviate some difficulties, such as minor back and neck pain. This includes all members of the family including pre- and post-pregnant women, children, teenagers, men and seniors.
