Chiropractic and the Fight or Flight Response.
Fight or flight. Rest and digest.
We can’t have both happening at the same time. We either have fight or flight OR rest and digest.
Short term stress: good
⁃ Running away from danger
⁃ Fighting off danger
⁃ Sporting games
⁃ Studying for an exam the next day
Long term stress: bad
⁃ Chronic fight or flight mode
⁃ Unable to rest and digest
⁃ Leading to anxiety and depression
⁃ Lack of sleep (rest)
⁃ Digestive issues (digest)
⁃ Recovery time prolonged due to lack of rest
How can chiropractic help?
⁃ Chiropractic focuses on the spine and the nervous system
⁃ We all know the nervous system controls everything; which includes the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) modes.
⁃ When the spine and nervous system is working well, the sympathetic and parasympathetic modes will react better to the correct stimulus.
Many patients realise that chiropractic care does not only help with their pain. They report they’re sleeping better, have more energy, improved digestion, and/or concentration levels increased.
