How Your Little Rock Physical Therapist Can Help You with Stress

Each year, a third of Americans die from stroke or heart disease. Many of these deaths could be prevented. Even here in beautiful  Little Rock, stress can affect your health. Diet, exercise, and smoking cessation are all critical elements in recovering from injury.

When stress is improperly managed, it can lead to poor health choices that increase the risks further. Stress can cause sleep disruption through discomfort or anxiety. Sleep deprivation is well known to increase the risk of factors leading to heart disease.

If you've been in an accident or experienced an injury, ordinary stressors can be greatly compounded. Your physical therapist should recognize the symptoms of stress and incorporate stress reduction into your sessions.

Little Rock Physical Therapist and Stress Management

Some stress can be avoided by refusing extra responsibilities; but, much day to day stress cannot be avoided. Childcare, work, and family needs are non-negotiable. But, learning to cope with stress better will cut down on its effects.

How to Better Manage Stress after an Injury

When confronted with a stressful situation, take a few moments to breathe mindfully. Doing so helps to take your body out of stress mode. Once the event has passed, taking a casual walk for thirty minutes can cleanse the stress hormones from your system. Meditation, reading or listening to music are great ways to spend time mindfully for valuable relaxation in an ordinarily non-stop stressful day.
