These days, one of the most pervasive conditions we treat is chronic stress and tension. In a high-stress, fast-paced world, it seems like
everyone is stressed to some degree or another. Long workdays can take a toll on our bodies and spine, whether they’re spent hunched over a computer or doing hard labor. Emotional and psychological stress can lead to the physical manifestation of tension and pain.
This can manifest in a few different ways- as simple as muscle tightness or as complex as migraines. Fortunately, chiropractic care can provide relief to many people experiencing these symptoms. As tension builds up within muscles, your joints move differently to accommodate that change. Over time, this can cause pain and nerve dysfunction to compound upon themselves, meaning that the pain, tension, and other related issues only grow. However, a chiropractic adjustment can relieve the pressure that is being applied to the nerves, as well as help release the muscle tension. The spine is a major player in your neurological system, and nerves control almost everything within the body. That means that adjustments around those nerves can make a great difference for a wide variety of issues that may arise as a result of increased stress in your life, whether it be physical or mental.
