Stress and Anxiety

Stress, Anxiety, Irritability or a Poor Ability to Adapt to Stress

The nerve system is the window through which we view the world, and through which we express ourselves. Going through life with an irritated nerve system is analogous to driving a car at night with a foggy windshield, and you know how stressful, irritating and draining that can be! Have you ever heard someone say “that grates on my nerves?” Well, when one, or many stimuli in your environment irritate, or over stimulate your nerve system, without it having a chance to refract (have a quiet phase), you will experience irritability, possibly feel anxious for no particular reason and your ability to adapt to any more stress will be compromised. Chiropractic care’s main objective is to lessen or remove irritation to the nerve system. Our work allows the nerve system to wind down. In fact often, during and after receiving care, a patient is heard to sigh, …a sigh of relief of irritation and tension. By teaching our patients what they each personally need to do to prevent and remove irritation to their own nerve systems (which tends to build up daily just from what we ask of our ourselves in this culture), they can then keep themselves aligned in such a way so as improve their ability to adapt to day to day stressors, thereby also helping to prevent anxiety and irritability.

Insomnia, or Less than Restful Sleep

Insomnia can have many causes, causes that range from mild to severe mental disorders and/or the medications used to treat them, as well as stimulants such as caffeine and other herbs, supplements and other medications. Hormone imbalances and simple “garden-variety” anxiety can also be at cause. One particular sleep deprived can be the irritation of the brain stem, the “sleep center,” by chronic imbalances of the vertebrae in the upper neck, where the neck vertebrae meet the skull. Imbalances here can put pressure on the spinal cord and cause remote irritation of the brain stem, which is just inside the skull where the neck meets the skull. Removal of this sort of pressure usually allows this sleep center to quiet down, enabling one to more easily slip off to sleep, as well as sleep deeper, and longer.

Irritability

Have you ever heard someone say “that grates on my nerves?” Well, when one or many stimuli in your environment irritate, or over stimulate your nerve system, without it having a chance to refract (have a quiet phase), you will experience irritability. Chiropractic care’s main objective is to lessen or remove irritation to the nerve system. Our work allows the nerve system to wind down. In fact often, during or after receiving care, a patient is heard to sigh, …a sigh of relief (of irritation and tension). By teaching our patients what they each personally need to do to prevent and remove irritation to their nerve systems, they can then keep themselves aligned in such a way so as to improve their ability to adapt to day to day stressors, thereby preventing irritability, and have a much greater experience of peace.
