Can Structural Chiropractic Help Me Handle Stress?
Just the word “summer” has us thinking about sandy beaches, frozen umbrella drinks and kicking back with buddies — or does it? In a recent survey, a third of Americans reported that they find themselves more stressed during the summer months than any other season of the year.
While surprising at first, it makes some sense when you take a look at the factors cited in the study: We have busier social lives at this time of year, with as many as three events per week. There’s stress in planning trips. Kids are out of school, which puts all kinds of new scheduling pressure on parents. And through all of that, many of us are dealing with ongoing seasonal allergy symptoms, which make everything harder.
This is why we chose to focus this month’s Q&A in the West Des Moines Living Magazine on how NeuroStructural Chiropractic may be able to help your body handle stress during not only summer, but all year long.
