Stress Management

In most cases, stress causes negative health effects such as high blood pressure, damage to muscle tissues, damaged immune system and many other negative effects if left untreated. You might not realize that there are non-substance methods to reducing stress. One of the best options available to patients is chiropractic care. Dr. Kent Carlomagno of Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center in San Rafael, CA uses a number of chiropractic techniques to revive patients and relieve them of the stresses of life.
Dr. Carlomagno is able to provide a drug-free, non-invasive treatment for many types of pain and inflammation caused by stress. When your body is under stress, the brain signals the adrenal glands to produce hormones, including cortisol and epinephrine. These hormones trigger the body's "flight or fight" response. The chiropractic adjustments completed by Dr. Carlomagno should be enough to convince the brain to turn off the “fight or flight” response that is triggered by stress.
Chiropractors work primarily with the spine, home of the nerve impulses that travel from the brain to the rest of the body. Through chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Carlomagno is able to release muscle tension, and help the body return to a more balanced, relaxed state. Adjustments also reduce spinal nerve irritation, and improve blood circulation. A healthy and balanced spine is one key to effectively managing stress. Though Dr. Carlomagno cannot make your job less stressful or improve your home life, he can provide you with handling stress better and helping your body cope with stress.
