Stress Relief in Greenville

woman with headacheCareer and family demands. Chaos in the world. Health concerns. It’s no secret that stress is part of everyday life. Whether it’s dealing with a difficult situation at work or managing a busy household, we all face challenges that can cause us to feel overwhelmed. While a certain amount of tension is normal, too much can lead to serious health problems. At Brown Chiropractic Center, we are here to help address your stress naturally.

Emotional or physical tension can manifest in various unpleasant ways:
  • Chronic aches and pains
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Digestive problems
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent sickness
  • Decreased energy

The Types of Stress

  • Physical: Many types of physical tension can wreak havoc on the body. This type of pressure can come from auto accidents, workplace accidents, sports-related injuries, lifting improperly, or slips and falls.
  • Mental: From financial struggles to work-related deadlines to caring for a parent with a serious illness, mental stress comes in many forms.
  • Chemical: Food additives, pesticides, pollution, personal hygiene products, medications. The list goes on and on. Every day, it seems we’re bombarded with multiple chemical stressors that can impact our nervous system and overall health.

Chiropractic & Other Natural Approaches

Stress is usually caused by external forces, such as pressure at work or personal difficulties. Oftentimes, we handle pressure by tightening up our neck and upper shoulder muscles. This is where many people feel discomfort when under pressure.

Dr. Brown can help eliminate any areas of pain in the neck, upper back and shoulders that may be worsened by the tension. Corrections of any problems in these areas, along with reduction of stressful situations, can help a patient feel better and much more relaxed quickly.

Other ways to reduce tension include exercising, journaling, getting good sleep, meditating, and more.


Is all stress bad?

No, some can be beneficial. A little pressure can help motivate us and keep us focused. For example, if you have a project due, feeling a little stressed can give you the energy and motivation to complete it on time.

However, too much pressure can be damaging to our health. It can lead to anxiety and depression, and it can make us more susceptible to illness.

Why is managing tension so important?

If not addressed, chronic stress can lead to depression, heart disease, diabetes, and other serious conditions.

Can nutrition help?

Yes! Eat foods rich in the following natural stress relievers: B vitamins, Vitamin C, magnesium, and omega-3s.
