Chiropractic Can Offer Relief from Stress-Related Pain, Health Problems
Date:6/12/2008

ARLINGTON, Va., June 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Millions of Americans are suffering from stress-related pain and headaches as they find themselves struggling with tough economic times, according to a new Associated Press-AOL Health Poll. In light of these alarming new survey results, patients may wish to consider the benefits of chiropractic care for the treatment and prevention of stress-related headaches and muscle pain, says the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).

"In today's economy, financial problems and pressures can certainly escalate stress, which in turn can contribute to common muscle pain and headaches. It's important not to ignore the symptoms associated with stress and anxiety," notes ACA President Glenn Manceaux, DC. "Taking care of your health during times of personal difficulty can not only help to alleviate related aches and pains, but it also can help you feel more positive about your situation.

"If your stress-related pain is not resolving on its own, visit your doctor of chiropractic. Working in partnership with your other health care providers, your doctor of chiropractic can offer a whole-person approach to health and wellness," Dr. Manceaux suggests.

Doctors of chiropractic provide drug-free, non-invasive treatment options for many types of pain and inflammation. For example, chronic back pain, neck pain, joint pain and headaches can often be reduced with the appropriate combination of chiropractic manipulation, rehabilitative exercises and lifestyle counseling -- all of which are offered by doctors of chiropractic in a patient's personalized treatment plan.

"Consumers also need to know that chiropractic treatment is a covered benefit in virtually all traditional insurance policies," adds Dr. Manceaux. "As many as 87 percent of all insured American workers have coverage for chiropractic services in their existing health care plans."

A significant amount of evidence has shown that the use of chiropractic care for certain conditions can be more effective than traditional medical care, with many patients feeling improvement shortly after their first chiropractic visit.

The American Chiropractic Association, based in Arlington, Va., is the largest professional association in the world representing doctors of chiropractic. The ACA provides lobbying, public relations, professional and educational opportunities for doctors of chiropractic, and offers leadership for the advancement of the profession.
