When you experience high levels of stress, your muscles will tense which is why you may feel more pain in your back and neck area's during stressful times and events. This tensing of the muscles will cause stress on your spine, causing it to become misaligned leading to abnormal function. These misalignments are commonly referred to as subluxations and they have the ability to make the stress feel even worse because of the increased pain involved, and your body's inability to heal properly due to the inflammation that excessive amounts of stress generally bring.
We see all ages of patients in our Wichita, KS chiropractic office, and our staff at Dopps Chiropractic & Acupuncture sees the negative effects stress has on people. We also see first hand how well chiropractic care can help!
Most people don't know that a chiropractic adjustment can do much more than correct problems in your spine. Chiropractic can have measurable effects on your central nervous system and brain, according to a 2011 study.
When you receive a chiropractic adjustment, your body will respond positively as restoring proper motion in your spine helps open the channels of nerve communication between your brain and body systems, allowing it to heal and function better. Essentially, this means less pain and less stress, and improved function of every system in your body. With a proper functioning nervous system the body also adapts better to the mental and physical stresses you encounter on a day to day basis leading to better health and wellness in time.
