Stress Overload Syndrome in McLaren Vale

woman with arms out at beachIn today’s fast-paced modern society, stress has become an epidemic. Busy mums juggling work, kids, household chores, and relationships, business owners striving to keep the wheels of their enterprises running, or the hard workers of McLaren Vale’s wineries and agricultural sectors managing the seasonal highs and lows – they all feel the pressure.

Dr Kara Martelle, our experienced chiropractor at McLaren Vale Chiropractic Centre, recognises this ailment of modern times, the ‘stress epidemic’. She regularly encounters the physical manifestations of stress in a wide range of patients – from managing directors to mums and winemakers.

More Than About Feeling Overwhelmed

Stress overload syndrome isn’t just about feeling overwhelmed. It’s an insidious condition that can adversely affect your physical health, triggering your body’s fight-or-flight response and keeping you in a state of constant tension. This over-activation can lead to problems like:

  • Heart disease
  • Obesity
  • Brain fog
  • Muscle cramps
  • Sleep disorders
  • A weakened immune system
  • Tension headaches & migraines
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Fertility challenges
  • Hair loss
  • Type 2 diabetes

Stress can also exacerbate mental health conditions.

How Chiropractic May Help

Fortunately, chiropractic is a valuable ally when it comes to taming tension. Chiropractic adjustments and other tailored advice from Dr Kara Martelle (Chiropractor) can help switch your body from a state of ‘fight or flight’ to a state of ‘rest and relax’ so your body can recover. Chiropractic adjustments help reset the body, reducing stress levels and aiding in overall wellness.
