How is emotional stress affecting your body?
Ever turned your head or bent over and instantly felt pain? Nothing you did was strenuous or different, so why the pain?
Often it’s due to emotional stress – ongoing stress can cause changes in the body’s nervous system which can lead to constriction in blood vessels and reduction of blood flow to the various soft tissues, including muscles, tendons and ligaments. In turn, this results in muscle tension, spasm and then suddenly the pain begins.
Chiropractic assists the nervous system to function at its best under this stress, but it is also highly important we address the initial cause and find ways to reduce your stress.
So today, slow down, think happy thoughts and find ways to manage your stress – your body will thank you!
