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 an upset stomach, back pain, recurring headaches, or muscle stiffness. Still others respond with nervous twitches, allergic reactions, or sensitivities to chemicals. Regardless of your particular signs of stress, the function of your nervous system is 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. Learn to recognize signs of stress and act to fix the cause.
