HOW CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELPS HOLIDAY STRESS
posted: Sep 06, 2018.
The holidays are a joyous time for many people, but the additional stress might affect you more than you even realize. The holidays are a time when expectations are high, timelines are tight, and you may be expected to hang out with family, work associates or friends you aren’t comfortable with. With all of the hustle, bustle and pressure, many people are struggling to get through the holidays with their sanity. Chiropractic care can alleviate the strain and depression that naturally comes with the “most wonderful time of the year.”
According to the APA, stress and the holidays often go hand-in-hand for people who are trying to balance their schedules and fit everything in. A Stress in America survey found that nearly a quarter of all adults report experiencing extreme stress. Over a third of adults have reported increased stress just within the past year. The Mayo clinic reports that “stress and depression can ruin your holidays and hurt your health… When stress is at its peak, it's hard to stop and regroup.”
Promote Healthy Lifestyles For Your Patients
At Pasadena college, students learn how to help their patients during the seasonal changes that may occur in their lives. Chiropractors should encourage their patients to continue healthy habits so that they feel good over the holidays. To help patients discover their points of tension and relax in areas where they aren’t even aware they are holding stress, chiropractors should explore tight points and consider extra treatments with the increased stress that a patient may be facing.
