Stress has been with us since the beginning of time. Every era has faced its share of threatening situations. Today, the stress of careers, deadlines, conflicts, and the demands on our time and money, take a huge toll on our health.
Just as a chain tends to break at its weakest link, we seem to exhibit stress and strain in the weakest areas of our bodies. For some, it’s recurring headaches, neck and shoulder pain. For others, it’s back pain or muscle stiffness. Still others respond with nervousness and tension.
Regardless of your particular response, the function of your spine and nervous system may be involved. That’s why chiropractic can be so helpful.
The chiropractic approach to stress is to help normalize the function of your nervous system by removing interference caused by the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Finding the “weak links” in your spine (the major communication pathway of your nervous system) and helping restore better function, can make a profound difference in your response to stress.
It may not be possible to remove the stress from a busy life. However, with the help of your chiropractic doctor, you can respond better to the unique challenges you face.
