|Chiropractic Care and Stress Reduction
If we're alive, we have stress. That much is a given. In fact, we are well-designed to cope with stress, but these ancient mechanisms can often go awry. Just as allergies and other hypersensitivity reactions represent extreme responses of normal physiological processes, the high levels of stress many of us experience on a daily basis represent abnormal responses of our built-in fight-or-flight mechanisms.
Stress is normal, but daily ongoing internal stress is abnormal. Chiropractic care can often provide substantial help, by reducing or eliminating extra sources of stress in our bodies. For example, restricted spinal joint mobility can lead to high levels of physiologic stress in muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support the joints. Stress in these soft tissues causes build-up of metabolic toxins and drains resources, such as oxygen and nutrients, that are needed elsewhere. These physiologic stresses create a vicious cycle of increasing stress in many areas of the body. Mechanical stress leads to mental stress, and mental stress leads to more muscle tension and even pain.
Chiropractic care directly addresses the spinal source of much physiologic stress. The result is a body that works more efficiently and more effectively. The result is increased health, happiness, and well-being.

Dr. Simmons is a lifesaver!! As a nurse I'm on my feet a lot and the pain in my back and hips was starting to interfere with my job. After a few visits with Dr. Simmons the pain and tightness in my back and hips was totally diminished and I can work a shift plus some and be totally pain free. She is also a delightful person! I look forward to my regular visits with her!
