Tight deadlines, long commutes, a demanding job and poor work-life balance are common causes of day-to-day stress. When you have a stressful day, your body reacts by releasing fast-acting hormones called adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol. Chronic stress is harmful to your body causing inflammation, anxiety, fatigue, muscle tightness, as well as neck, back, and shoulder pain.
Physiotherapy triggers a relaxation response in your body, relieving stress, anxiety, and fatigue. A physiotherapist will give you the tools you need to cope with stress including specialized breathing and relaxation advice, treat the cause of your pain with stretching and strengthening exercises, and help get you stress-free!
