Can Something As Simple As Stretching Improve Your Health?
We are all exposed to physical, chemical and emotional stress on a daily basis which impacts the ability of the nervous system to function optimally and keep you healthy and well.
Many adults and children are spending their days in front of a computer screen (physical stress) eating more junk food (chemical stress) and dealing with more emotional stress than ever given the circumstances of this last year.
This added stress leads to the inability for your brain and nervous system to adapt and recover which ultimately leads to illness and disease.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown in research to improve your brain’s ability to adapt to stress allowing it to function the way that it should and do its job of keeping you healthy.
Chiropractic should be at the top of your list when it comes to maintaining good health.
A great way to supplement your chiropractic adjustments is through stretching. Here are 4 ways stretching can help improve your health.
1) It reduces stress and tension. When we experience stress we tend to hold our bodies more tensely, so not only are you being exposed to the mental stress but physical too.
2) It improves posture. Poor posture places significant stress on the nervous system and has even been linked to depression.
3) It creates better alignment. Balance, metabolism and visual acuity can be negatively impacted when our bodies are under stress.
4) It improves flexibility and range of motion and prevents injuries.
