April is National Stress Awareness Month

April is National Stress Awareness Month! At Block Sports Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, all of our treatment programs are designed around the key philosophy that good health comes from within–that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the preferred method of achieving long-term pain relief over, for instance, regularly ingesting potentially harmful painkillers. Our years of experience teaching patients all across Long Island in leading healthy lifestyles, has taught us that one of the biggest obstacles people face in reaching their fitness goals is the challenge of combating stress in their daily lives. That is why it is of such great importance to us that our patients remain mindful of ways of managing stress.
