Benefits of the Chiropractic Adjustment

Benefit #1: Stress reduction

One of my favorite benefits of the Chiropractic adjustment is stress reduction. Stress is an inevitable part of our daily lives.  Often times we can’t eliminate the stressors, but we can change the way that we respond.

The adjustment helps to decrease stress by reducing the release of the stress hormone Cortisol.  It increase the release of hormones that contribute to relaxation and good feelings, Serotonin and Oxytocin. Adjustments also relieve pain which can decrease feelings of stress.
