Can Chiropractic Care in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Reduce Stress?

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida. According to a recent report in the Atlantic, stress can be deadly. American workers are highly stressed. They are overworked, face job insecurity, and may be working longer and longer hours. The effect of stress on the body is facing closer scrutiny. One study suggests that as many as 120,000 people die each year due to fatal conditions that can be correlated to stress. Hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and mental health issues resulting from stress can decrease quality of life and even be deadly. The good news is that stress is highly treatable, preventable, and can be alleviated without the need for medications, in many cases.

Stress can be dangerous because of its impact on behavior. It can also result in weight gain. Researchers have found links between patients who suffer from chronic stress and obesity. Cortisol is the stress hormone found in the body and when it is present, individuals may be more likely to stress eat. Finding alternative ways to combat stress is not only important for a person’s mental health, but also for a person’s physical health. One way to reduce the presence of cortisol in the body is through the use of massage. Studies have found that massage therapy can reduce the presence of cortisol in the body by as much as one-third. Massage therapy can also release the body’s “feel good” hormones.


More patients are turning to chiropractic care in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to help them manage stress. Can chiropractic care really help patients combat stress? According to the Journal of Gerontology, 80% of patients undergoing complimentary or alternative medicine treatments, including chiropractic care, reported benefits. The study found that there is high interest among older adults for receiving chiropractic care. These users reported anxiety and depression as some of the symptoms they wished to treat. The study concluded that there is insufficient research into the benefits of chiropractic care, but patients report seeing benefits. At the end of the day, when it comes to stress, reduction of cortisol (the stress hormone), involves a changed state of mind.
