Dr. Cathy Brodows

Dr. Cathy Brodows from Southport Chiropractic will give a free talk on how chiropractic treatments can help alleviate three  types of stress Thursday, Dec. 3, at 6:30 p.m., at the Bigelow Center, 100 Mona Terrace.

One effect of chronic stress is prolonged muscle tension and contraction which creates uneven pressures on the bony structures of the body, often leading to misalignment of the spinal column. Chronic stress can also lead to nerve irritation. The adjustments of a chiropractor release muscle tension, helping the body return to a more balanced, relaxed state. Adjustments can also reduce spinal nerve irritation and improve blood circulation. A healthy and balanced spine is one key to managing stress.

Chiropractors are also trained in nutritional and other therapies as well. Dr. Brodows has been in practice for more than 17 years. She recently moved back to the tri-state area after living in Texas, and is with Southport Chiropractic. Dr. Brodows earned a bachelor’s of science from SUNY Binghamton, and graduated summa cum laude from Life University.

Life University is located in Marietta, Georgia and is known for its Doctorate in Chiropractic Program. According to Life University’s website, “Chiropractic is a philosophy of health, a science of the nervous system and spine, and an art of helping people regain their health naturally. It recognizes that the body is an intelligent self-developing, self-maintaining and self-healing organism and understands that the nervous system controls every part of the body including the immune system. Chiropractic believes that the body works best when the nervous system is free of damaging interferences, which cause malfunction, symptoms and diseases, and a reduced quality of life.”

The Bigelow Center is accessible to people using assistive devices. The public is welcome to attend this free presentation. To register in advance, call 203-256-3166.
