Tension, Stress and Your Overall Wellbeing

If you’re experiencing illness or a health complication that you know is serious, you probably would be active in getting care.  Even when we recognize a behavior or choice as compromising our health and longevity, many of us make the choice to reduce or eliminate that negative decision or habit.  When it comes to stress and tension though, many times we fail to see how serious an impact it has on our health, healing and overall wellbeing. 

Stress and tension can be deadly, as it feeds into our body’s inflammatory responses and can build up within our tissues to create a number of health concerns.  Fully assessing and managing stress and tension are just as important to overall wellbeing as maintaining a healthy diet and fitness plan, and getting adequate rest and care when ill. 

Here at Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we can to help you identify the effects that stress and tension may have on your body and wellbeing—and we’re here to provide you management and relief solutions. However, it’s still very important that you make tension and stress management a priority in your life. Share with us your ways of minimizing stress and keeping its effects under control.

Slip and Fall Injury – When to Seek Treatment

When the body is suddenly subjected to the trauma of a severe slip and fall, a number of things can go wrong—and sometimes it’s hard to identify their severity.  Pain is one indicator, but the presence of pain or lack thereof isn’t always the most efficient communicator of injury or damage.  During a slip or fall, the spine and extremities can become misaligned or injured as the body attempts to catch itself and find solid footing. Sudden impact with the ground or other hard surface can also amount to both hard and soft tissue damage.

If you’ve experienced a slip or fall, or if you’re experiencing pain that could be connected to a previous injury, it’s wise to seek to examination and, if needed, pursue treatment.  Slip and fall injuries affect the body in numerous ways and the full effects aren’t always immediate, but with a professional assessment, we can address any issues and develop a safe, effective physical therapy treatment plan.

Here at Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation we provide a number of physical therapy and chiropractic treatment services to help our patients who have suffered from a slip and fall injury, as well as subsequent complications.  These include comprehensive and personalized therapeutic exercise programs, as well as advanced pain relieving treatments like ultrasound and EMS therapy.  We invite you to contact us directly to learn more about our treatments and how that can benefit you in your slip and fall injury recovery.
