Did you know that chiropractic care is one of the good ways to relieve stress?
Just as a chain tends to break at its weakest link, we seem to exhibit stress and strain in the weakest areas of our bodies. For some, its back pain. For others, recurring headaches, upset stomach, or muscle stiffness. Still others respond with nervous twitches, allergic reactions, or sensitivities to chemicals. Regardless of your particular response, the function of your nervous system is involved.

Dr. Hruby’s approach to stress is to help normalize the function of your nervous system by removing interference caused by the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Finding the “weak links” in your spine (the major communication pathway of your nervous system) and helping restore better function, can make a profound difference in your response to stress. It may not be possible to remove the stress from a busy life. However, with the help of your chiropractic doctor, you can respond better to the unique challenges you face.
Exercise regularly. With gyms being closed and social distance guidelines in place, you might be wondering how you are going to get exercise. You can still get aerobic exercise in the form of walking, running, hiking, or playing with your kids or pets. Take a walk at one of the Waukesha County Parks.

Maintain a healthy diet. Stress affects the frequency of our meals and the quality of our food. We can eat too little or too much, often turning to the fastest junk food to alleviate our emotions. Fight stress and emotional eating by being mindful of your stress triggers. Keep healthy snacks on hand, nourishing your body, protecting yourself to better deal with your anxiety.
Take a break. While it’s important to stay plugged in regarding the news and latest developments, the fluid nature of evolving communications can become overwhelming. Find a way to limit screen time. Go old school and bust out an old board game or a jigsaw puzzle and decompress from the news.
Connect with others. Text, FaceTime, Skype, email, or call an old friend, neighbor, or relative. Too much isolation leads to depression and anxiety. Making a point to connect with others helps alleviate loneliness and stress.
Consider chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments release muscle tension, calming the irritated spinal nerves, improving blood circulation. Chiropractic adjustments begin changes in the body that signal the brain to switch off the fight-or-flight response so the body can return to a more relaxed and tempered state.
