Here is more information about stress and the chronic stress-related injuries you may be suffering from.
What is Chronic Stress?
Chronic stress is a fairly vague term. It basically means a person who has been under a lot of stress for a prolonged period of time. However, people face different situations and handle and tolerate stress differently. As such, the tipping point for chronic stress can vary from person to person. If you feel like you are losing control and feeling physical and psychological symptoms due to the stress, you are likely suffering from chronic stress.
What Are Chronic Stress Symptoms?
There are many symptoms of chronic stress, and not everyone experiences the same symptoms. Some common symptoms of chronic stress include anxiety, sleep pattern changes, appetite changes, changes in libido, headaches, acne, and pain within the body. Those suffering from chronic stress may also often feel overwhelmed, scared, anxious and like they are losing control.
What Are the Long Term Effects of Chronic Stress?
There are different long term effects related to chronic stress. Chronic stress can take a toll on you both mentally and physically. Those who have chronic stress are more likely to become depressed, develop insomnia and develop unhealthy eating habits. Chronic stress can also decrease your immune system, which can make you ill more frequently. You may also have pain in your body and inflammation.
How Can a Chiropractor Treat Chronic Stress?
A chiropractor offers treatments that can help you to deal with stress. Aligning a misaligned spine may not seem like a cure for stress, but it can help to decrease some of the physical pains that you have in your body related to stress. A chiropractor also offers massage therapy, which can help to decrease stress and treat physical pain within your body.
