People in the Southeast Houston, Friendswood, Clear Lake, League City, and Pearland areas keep asking me about: 3 Ways Fascial Manipulation and Dry Needling Can Help Reduce Your Stress
Did you know… chronic stress can contribute to health challenges like anxiety and even back pain.
Why? When your body is in a constant state of stress, it produces hormones that can disrupt almost all of your body's natural processes. Chronic stress produces hormones which can actually sensitize the way that you perceive pain by making your nerves more easily stimulated.
Not only that but muscle stiffness can actually contribute to stimulation of the peripheral nerves which start to complain to your brain in the form of pain signals. This is your check engine light. It's saying hey something's going on here take a look!
That’s one of the big reasons discovering healthy ways to cope with stress is one of the best ways to keep yourself well, and I may be the perfect healthcare partner to help you get started.
Why it Matters:
Studies have proven that chronic stress affects both your brain and body in various ways and identifying its presence early is a key way to maintain your good health.
Early signs of chronic stress include sleeplessness, headaches, muscle tension, and joint pain.
As it happens, fascial manipulation and dry needling can help you overcome stress in a few unique ways.
Here are just 3 ways we can help you reduce stress…
Reducing Muscle Tension and Pain: Reducing any built-up tension in your muscles can help soothe a tired body and mind.
Restoring Movement: Gentle adjustments to the body can help you move your back, arms, and legs more freely and with less pain.
Offering Personalized Exercise: Daily exercise is a powerful way to turn the dial down on that mental stress and up on your overall physical well-being (not to mention reinforcing the effectiveness of our approach!).
Even people who are never stressed out often start to notice an uptick in headaches, muscle tension, and difficulty sleeping during this time of year.
If you’re finding it just a bit challenging to simply relax and enjoy the holidays because you’re stressed, just give us a call and see how I can help.
