The stress is in your spine

Every day, you put your spine through countless motions and stresses that cause general wear and tear on the vertebrae and surrounding muscles. Physical and mental stress combine to cause slight misalignments of the spine, called subluxation, and put pressure on the associated nerves. This can cause you to feel out of sorts and limit your range of motion.

What we can do to alleviate stress in the spine and stress on the mind

Gentle chiropractic adjustments can address subluxation and restore your spine to proper alignment, allowing you to feel healthier and move better. But what about true relaxation, releasing the chemicals and hormones within your body that make you feel at ease and happy. We achieve this through massage therapy. At Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center, we offer a range of massage services depending on the kind of treatment you are seeking. Through massage we can:

  • Alleviate muscle tension
  • Reduce stress
  • Support your immune system
  • Help with sleep disorders
  • Increase flexibility
  • Improve endurance
  • Encourage total relaxation

Turn up the feel good factor

When you receive a satisfying massage, something immense happens within your body. Cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, levels fall following a massage while dopamine and serotonin, responsible for mood and motivation, are released, leaving your nervous system feeling happy and replenished. Massage is a natural, hands-on approach to feeling better. Why deny yourself this healing pleasure?
