Feeling stressed out? The body can easily handle short-term stress, but periods of sustained stress can have a harmful impact on general health. Our team at Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center approaches stress management holistically, providing tools and techniques to reduce stress levels.
What Causes Stress?
Common triggers in life such as a new job position, traumatic events, moving to a new city, or working too many hours can trigger high stress levels. Work stress is the biggest source of stress for 40 percent of American employees. Working long hours or having poor management can lead to work stress. Long-term stress is an issue and can lead to illness. The body easily recovers from a brief stressful situation, with the body demonstrating the “fight or flight” response, exhibiting an increase in heartbeat and breathing rates. On the other hand, chronic stress and unhealthy coping mechanisms can often pose a problem.
What is The Impact on the Body with Chronic Stress?
Chronic stress refers to prolonged periods of mental stress, which can have lasting effects on the entire body. People who report higher levels of chronic stress are more likely to develop heart disease, depression, diabetes, dementia, cancer, digestive symptoms, and more. The following diagram shows potential harmful changes in the body as a result of chronic stress.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Read what our patients share their experiences and find out why we are the top-rated chiropractic clinic in the Cary area.
I have been seeing Dr.Tammy regularly since 2016. I have Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and require consistent care due to multiple joint subluxations which contribute to widespread chronic pain.
I look forward to my weekly appointment and feel so much better after getting fixed up (adjusted)!
All Chiropractors are not equal when considering treatment for EDS. The key is finding someone who is gentle but effective, understands the challenges of the Hypermobile body, listens, feels, and sees how the body is moving and adjusts the treatment accordingly. Dr.Tammy checks all those boxes! She is a skilled practicioner who has taken such excellent care of me I also have entrusted her with my daughter's care as well. We both see her regularly and feel she is a vital part of our care team. EDS has no cure and managing symptoms becomes the treatment plan. For us, Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy are the bread and butter to managing our subluxations, reducing pain, and improving daily functionality. We are so fortunate to have found Dr.Tammy Atkinson at the Chiropractic Wellness Center in Cary!!
Dr. Tammy's refined and careful touch has helped me tremendously with my neck and upper back issues. She's been over on Kildaire Farm Rd. for over 10 years. I've appreciated the various therapies she offers in addition to the standard adjustments.
Dr. Tammy is the best. Very easy to schedule appointments and although 1 session does not immediately fix your issue - I always feel 150% better after the first appointment than before I walked in. She is kind, gentle and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center to anyone looking for the best Chiropractor!
