Don’t let your pain stress you out!!!!
Stress is an unavoidable part of life. Everyone feels different degrees of stress and processes it in their own way. Symptoms of stress may vary, but they all have one thing in common: long term stress has negative effects on your body.
Stress can be a killer! .
Stress reduction and management is critical to living a healthy life. Oviedo Injury and Wellness Center’s mission is to help our patients achieve a better quality of life using natural and effective methods. Dr. Ressler chiropractor in Oviedo, FL has helped hundreds of patients recover from injuries and improve their well-being. There are many ways to combat stress, but Oviedo chiropractor, Dr. Ressler tells his patients that, “reducing stress naturally is always the best and should be the first option.”
Here are Dr. Ressler’s top three all-natural stress reducing techniques!
Pain and discomfort are often a major source of stress in the body. Misaligned spinal vertebrae or joints, along with inflammation, puts pressure on the nerve roots causing pain. An effective all-natural approach to alleviate pain is a chiropractic adjustment. Oviedo chiropractor, Dr. Ressler relieves this pain producing pressure on the nerve roots by using the “activator method.” The method incorporates a state-of-the-art instrument called an “activator.” The activator uses a spring-loaded action to send a gentle force into the joint to move it back into correct position. This technique is low force, precise and does not involve cracking or twisting. These qualities make it ideal to treat patients who are in a great deal of pain from auto accident-related injuries. The activator method has helped patients heal from many other conditions as well. This includes but is not limited to injuries to the extremities. (Shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.) Eliminating the source of pain allows the entire body to relax which causes an immediate reduction in stress.

Massage therapy is also a great all-natural option for reducing stress. Along with increasing circulation, flexibility, and assisting the lymphatic system in the elimination of toxins, massage works on the soft tissues to release muscle tension. Oviedo Injury and Wellness Center’s board-certified therapists have advanced training to alleviate the source of the pain and reduce muscle tension. Every massage at Oviedo Injury and Wellness Center is performed by a highly trained massage therapist and is tailored to a patient’s specific needs. Our staff has over 50 years of combined experience in massage and helping people with their injuries. OIWC’s number one objective is pain relief, complete healing, and stress reduction for all patients.
Exercise and Stretching Protocols
Exercising improves muscle tone, strength, and act as a support system to the joints in the spine. For that reason, strong muscles assist in maintaining spinal alignment and prevent injuries such as disc bulges or herniations. It is no secret that strong, limber muscles make everyday activities easier to do. Therefore, effortless daily tasks equal more energy for you in the long run. Along with increased energy, exercise also reduces levels of stress in the body. It stimulates endorphin production which is the body’s natural response to stress and pain. This is why exercising has been shown to have mood-boosting qualities.
In addition to exercising, it is important to incorporate stretching. Stretching increases blood flow to your muscles and improves your flexibility. Keeping your muscles flexible allows you to have optimal range of motion in your joints. Remember the saying “If you don’t use it, you lose it”? This applies to the fact that you need to always try to maintain your joints in the maximum range of motion possible. Stretching enables you to do this and prevent long term issues like arthritis. This lowers your risk of getting injured during physical activity. Oviedo chiropractor, Dr. Ressler teaches his patients how to maintain proper form and will prescribe a customized low-impact routine to help you reduce stress.
