Chronic Stress and Pain Relief in Loveland

These stressors often affect the nervous system and the body’s overall well-being.

Here’s a look at the three types of stress people experience:

Physical

From sitting behind a desk to our sleeping positions, spending hours on our phones looking down, and even the way we drive, physical stresses are constantly present. They may seem mundane, like picking up groceries or slouching, but they take a toll on our bodies.

We also face the effects of previous accidents, injuries, and traumas that linger within us. If you’re an older athlete, for example, a past injury could come back to haunt you if it wasn’t properly addressed. Even something as simple as lifting a box the wrong way can trigger a chronic stress response in our bodies. This manifests in various ways, such as tightness, stiffness, headaches, and overall body soreness. It significantly impacts our system.

Chemical

Another type of stress that affects our nervous system and bodily reactions is chemical stress. Everything we consume, from food and drinks to OTC or prescription medications, is exposed to our nervous system and our bodies work tirelessly to filter out and process these substances.

Mental & Emotional

Lastly, mental and emotional stress play a significant role in how our brain, body, and nervous system function. Currently, our world seems like a giant stress ball, with all three types of stress intertwining and affecting us.

Taking a Holistic Approach to Chronic Stress and Pain

At Dawson Chiropractic, we take a comprehensive approach to addressing chronic stress and pain effectively. This involves identifying and addressing each type of stress individually.

1. Physical: During the evaluation process, we examine any past accidents, injuries, or physical trauma that may contribute to chronic pain. By understanding your physical history, we can better tailor treatment plans to alleviate discomfort and promote healing.

2. Chemical: Nutrition, diet, lifestyle choices, and hydration play significant roles in managing chronic stress and pain. We emphasize the importance of a healthy, balanced diet and provide guidance on proper nutrition and supplementation.

3. Mental and Emotional: Dr. Jerod also focuses on helping patients manage their mental and emotional stress. We offer stress management skills and tools, including breathing exercises, specific exercises targeting stress reduction, and movement techniques to aid healing.

The Impact of a Comprehensive Treatment Plan

Chronic stress and pain can manifest in various parts of the body, underscoring the magnitude of stress experienced by the body daily. By carefully examining these manifestations, we can better understand the accumulated stress and develop effective strategies to alleviate it.

By addressing all three types of stress, we aim to reset the stress cycle and improve the body’s response. Patients often experience positive outcomes, such as reduced heart rate, improved sleep patterns, decreased joint pain and stiffness, enhanced digestion, increased energy levels, and improved immune function.
