The holidays are a joyful time of year, with family gatherings and festive parties providing an opportunity to spend time with your loved ones. However, the holiday season can also be accompanied by a fair amount of stress - which can lead to headaches and neck strain. Make the most of your holiday season by taking advantage of our professional chiropractic treatments at Spine and Rehabilitation of Morris, LLC in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey. 

The Results of Stress

While the holidays can be lots of fun, they can also be very stressful. Buying and wrapping gifts, planning seasonal parties, and untangling string lights can all contribute to a stress-inducing scenario. Stress can result in chronic tension headaches, sore or stiff muscles, and neck or shoulder strain. To make matters worse, neck strain or stiff muscles can also contribute to the intensity of headaches. These conditions can make it difficult to enjoy yourself during the holidays, and you may even find yourself canceling plans due to your pain and discomfort. 

How Chiropractic Can Help

Conditions like neck strains and headaches are often the result of spinal misalignments. Your neck is composed of many individual muscles that are quite delicate and can be subject to frequent physical strain or trauma. Stress often manifests in the shoulders and neck, creating tension and possibly moving your spine out of proper alignment. Chiropractic treatments correct spinal misalignments and reduce the effects of stress on your body. 

Heal From the Inside Out

Many traditional treatments for headaches and neck strain rely on over-the-counter medications to manage symptoms. However, these anti-inflammatory drugs can lead to side effects like nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, heartburn, and more. If you’re already dealing with chronic headaches during the holidays, side effects are the last thing you want to worry about. Chiropractic treatments typically have no side effects and are designed to address the underlying cause of your discomfort - not just the symptoms.
