Although you don’t often think about, stress is one of the leading contributors to many types of afflictions. It is insipid, and tends to sneak up on you as you battle the trials and tribulations of your daily life; however, the effect is significant enough to cause muscles spasms, headaches, migraines and any number of neuromuscular problems.
Instead of fainting or going unconscious, think of a subluxation as your body’s attempt at managing stress.
In fact, this is precisely why chiropractic is uniquely poised to address stress-related tension and other issues related to your central nervous system. Your spine connects to most of the larger muscles in your body, which means it influences your nerves. Chiropractic was developed as a noninvasive answer to the spine, and the relationship your vertebrae have with the nervous system and the problems that arise when it is suppressed – or otherwise adversely affected.
The Method of Chiropractic for Stress
An experienced chiropractor will first perform several tests to ascertain the state of your spinal column, and your body’s response to it. Upon detection of misalignments, she will devise a program of treatment exclusive to the individual. Usually, this involves targeted massages and vertebral realignment; as well as chiropractic adjustments to the affected regions. By restoring the proper function of your spinal column, you will notice a shift in your entire body, because the source of physical fatigue has been removed and your nervous system can now recover.
Chiropractic adjustment has been shown to help with many stress-related illnesses. It removes the source of the stress and allows your to stop using so much muscular energy to support an out-of-whack spinal column. As such, it effectively restores your natural, healthy state.
Stressors can’t be eliminated, but regular chiropractic care may help you better accommodate and adapt to it. Give us a call at 208-965-8784.
