Entering early adulthood can be stressful. Work, bills, and home-life all change and begin to take a toll on your body. This added stress load is also associated with developing high blood pressure later on in life.
Another piece of the unfortunate puzzle with blood pressure is its association with childhood obesity and being overweight at a young age. A research study was done comparing young males with healthy BMIs and stressful lives against young males with high BMIs and stressful lives. The study showed that the men with high BMIs were three times more likely to have high blood pressure later on in life.
Chiropractic care can help you deal with the stressors of everyday life. Stress in good in small amounts, but long term can have negative effects on your body. Chiropractic adjustments stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system, or in simpler terms, your break pedal system. This break pedal is where we want you to be for most of your everyday life. This is where you rest, digest, heal, and grow. Stimulating this part of your nervous system will help to decrease stress on your body, and also help you cope with everything that comes your way.
