Chiropractors in Oregon
Emotional stress is known to be the cause of many debilitating conditions. Oregon chiropractors know that unrelenting, continuous stress over long periods of time can cause reactions in the body that are deleterious to health. This is because emotional stress can cause the release of stress hormones. These stress hormones bring about biochemical and muscular changes that can result in inflammation of the spinal tissues, tightening of the muscles, and restricted movements of the joints, giving rise to what chiropractors call subluxation(s).
Virtually all chiropractors in Oregon are licensed through the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners, whose aim is serving the public, regulating chiropractors in Oregon, promoting quality and ensuring competent, ethical care.
Oregon chiropractors are aware that structural distortions cause more than just pain and soreness. The blocking of normal flow of nerve impulses to and from the brain can cause a variety of issues to manifest. Extremely stressful events in life, such as divorce, death of a loved one, loss of a job, business failure, and exposure to natural disasters, accidents or other man-made catastrophes can result in serious setbacks to an individual’s health. This happens because of significant elevation of blood pressure, hormonal changes, heart rate, inflammation, accelerated blood clotting and changes in vascular tone, all of which can happen as a result of severe and sustained emotional stress.
Oregon chiropractors, besides carrying out chiropractic spinal adjustments to manage a variety of health conditions, are interested in providing other stress management techniques. Consult one of the Oregon chiropractors in a community near you:
