bodies are designed to be healthy – to exist in a stable state of optimal
function better known as homeostasis. During the holidays, heightened stress
can wreak havoc on our nervous system, and therefore our optimal function,
leaving us feeling tired and worn down. The good news is, you can stay happy
and healthy and feeling great this holiday season by integrating a few simple
holiday stress busters into your routine, and while you can’t eliminate every
source of stress in your life, a few smart decisions can help keep that added
stress at bay and reduce your chances of getting sick.
Why it Matters:
year, millions of people get sick before, during, or after the holidays, and
the most common culprit for all this illness is STRESS. When your body is
stressed, it doesn’t recover very well, and you are more likely to become sick.
Not only could you experience more aches and pains, but you may also experience
mental fatigue. Luckily, you’re in the right place. New research tells us that just
like eating well and getting enough sleep, Chiropractic adjustments can go a
long way towards positively influencing your stress levels by reducing your
muscle tension so that you can feel better both during the holiday season and
into the new year.
Many people carry their stress
in their neck and shoulders.
Chiropractic adjustments have
been shown to decrease muscle tension in the neck and shoulders.
Research has shown people
experience less stress after receiving Chiropractic care.
By getting enough rest, exercise, and Chiropractic care, you can bust your stress levels and reduce your chance of getting sick this holiday season. You’ll feel better, more energized and experience a happier and healthier holiday, helping you do more of what you love with the people you love. That’s what it’s all about, and we’re here to help! Give us a call to schedule your next adjustment – you’ll be glad you did! Happy holidays from our family to yours! Book online at www.waverleychiro.com.au or phone 9581 2624

Traveling long distances on planes, trains, and automobiles is a common side-effect of the holidays, and the stress of all this holiday travel can be overwhelming. Lifting heavy suitcases, hopping in the car for a 13+ hour drive, or even getting the middle seat on an overbooked flight can lead to awkward neck positions and that all too familiar worn down feeling. It’s no surprise that many people experience increased neck pain and shoulder tension during the holidays, so what can you do about it besides turning into the Grinch and staying home? Well, new research tells us that you’ve made a smart decision in visiting our office for help.
Why it Matters:
No one should have to rely on dangerous medications to get through the holiday season. Even some of the most common over the counter medications have a laundry list of potentially harmful side effects. If you are experiencing neck pain and shoulder tension, Chiropractic care is a top alternative. Researchers have found that adjustments can drastically reduce neck pain, improve mobility,and reduce the overall levels of stress on our musculoskeletal system, which means you can feel better without having to reach for a bottle of pills.
Chiropractic adjustments can reduce the stress response triggered by our nervous system.
Reduced pain, improved rang eof motion, and fewer muscle spasms are often reported following Chiropractic care.
For many of us, travel is a part of our yearly holiday tradition. As much as the trip can be hard on our bodies, it’s important to visit with friends and family. We want you to have the best holiday season possible, and if you plan on traveling this holiday season, let us know! We would love to show you a few simple stretches and exercises you can do to help you stay well between your adjustments. Give us a call or stop in today. Happy holidays!
