Stress caused by Loss or Death of a loved one

This can be a spouse, parent, child or friend. Death is part of life, but the death of a loved one is something that causes significant stress. Our hearts are broken as we grieve for our loved one and our lives are seriously disrupted. This is something which we can do little about, unfortunately, and also something we all have to deal with, sooner or later. Many people recover from this stressor and continue with their lives. Others never fully recover. Death of a loved is one of the most common causes of stress and can cause a number of serious illnesses that we take on ourselves, including depression.

The death of a child is probably the worst pain anyone can endure and many people never fully recover from this type of stress, however, they do manage to go on with their lives for the sake of others around them. Despite the fact that the death of a child is enough to put anyone over the edge, most people have more of a life force and feel compelled to go on. However, this is one stress factor that can be completely devastating to someone emotionally and is one from which one never fully recovers.

Bereavement stress can be a serious factor in causing and maintaining your Headaches, Neck Pain and Back Pain.

Stress could be a major factor in your pain

Stress is now considered a modern-day epidemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Lack of understanding is the primary cause of today’s stress epidemic. Most people believe that the thinking part of the mind rules the body but it is the emotional part that determines how well or how ill we feel.

Stress begins when a feeling like tension, irritation or worry escalates into stronger emotions like frustration, anxiety and anger. Finally we end up overloaded, exhausted – in a word, stressed.

Stress manifests itself in poor thought patterns, negative attitudes and feeling out of control. This overload is often the underlying cause of physical pain. Stress can aggravate existing conditions like neck pain, back pain and headache and make them much worse.

At Mind and Body Chiropractic we understand the interplay of stress (Mind) with pain patterns (Body) and have developed treatment systems using the most modern approaches of Chiropractic and Psychology to heal your pain.

We Have Ways to Make it Better

The first thing we do: create a profile of you and your state of health. We combine a good old-fashioned personal approach with the very latest in technology, research and treatment.

The general information we gather about you includes your postural analysis, spine temperature, muscle tension and stress level bio-feedback. This information is fed into a computer program that gives us a precise picture: the exact nature of your condition, its probable causes and what we can do to make it better.

You will then be invited into one of our Relaxation Rooms where you will be treated to a session in a computerized massage chair that can be set up for your particular requirements. We can be playing relaxation music, we can be using a biofeedback program or a hypnosis program, we can show visual imagery. The result: you are deeply relaxed and ready for treatment.

Through a variety of treatments and lifestyle choices we can help you restore your health and sense of wellbeing.
