Though the outside world may think Santa Barbara is a holistic wellness paradise, those of us who live here know that stress still happens. We all know stress is bad for us and some doctors say that stress is related in up to 60% of most physical illnesses. Stress can endanger all aspects of wellness. Back pain, headaches, and upset stomachs could be caused by stress. As can restlessness, irritation, anxiety, and depression could all be symptoms of stress. High blood pressure, over-eating, under-eating…the list can go on and on. But what can we do to combat stress?

Luckily, there are many treatments for stress that are effective and holistic. Massage therapy, physio-therapy, chiropractic treatments, meditation, and exercise are all great forms of stress relief.

What’s that you say? How can chiropractic treatments help combat stress?

Chiropractic treatments can help relieve tension in muscles and joints. Spinal adjustments can help keep the nervous system free from irritation, making sure that the brain signals are all getting through so the body functions properly.

We may not be able to control the stressful situations around us, but we can control the way stress affects us. assisting chiropractic treatments with a good diet, exercise, and other stress relieving activities can help increase your wellness and vitality.

As chiropractors, it is our duty to help you live a long, pain-free, and stress-free life. We can help set you up with massage and physio-therapy to get your life on the road to less stress.
