Endocrine Response to Stress

By:

Vidhi Shastri, PT, CFMT

The Endocrine system causes changes at the tissue level as well as changes in the brain due to the fight or flight mode initiated by stress. The changes at the tissue level include fatigue, sensitivity, soreness, tiredness and sluggishness – which leads to deconditioning.

Changes at the brain level can be serious, like short term memory loss, weight gain, mood swings, problems with focus and concentration and changes in appetite.

Targeted, manual therapy can help regulate the endocrine system and in turn help the tissues and brain. Other treatment options include nutrition, pacing, meditation, cardio exercises.

My next article will discuss how the respiratory system is also affected by stress, changes and potential treatment options.
