Chiropractic and Stress

Keep in mind that chiropractors do not claim to treat conditions. We merely seek to remove stress and obstruction to your nervous system function, which is often the root cause of symptoms and dysfunctions. This is why people with a wide array of health problems see restored health and improved function with chiropractic care, because the nervous system controls and regulates every function in the human body.

Have you ever been so nervous or anxious that you actually started noticing a stomach ache or cramping occur? This is an excellent example of how our overall mental state effects our entire nervous system!

Similarly, when we are under stress we also notice decreased immune system function and tend to get sick more often. Stress negatively effects our nervous system and is one of the major causes of subluxation in the spine.

When a vertebrae moves out of alignment, we call these areas of misalignment subluxation, in which there is stress and interference in the nervous system. When subluxations are present long enough, degenerative conditions such as disc herniations, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease occur. Chronic pain, from the conditions listed above, is also a major stressor for many people.

When we are stressed, we cannot adapt to the environment around us nearly as well. Without getting your spine checked, many people find themselves "locked in" a cycle of stress, which is hard to break when your nervous system is in a state of dysfunction.

Having this pressure and interference to your nervous system removed, so your body can work in a harmonious fashion again is what chiropractic is all about. The body is an intelligent, self healing and self regulating organism. 100% expression of the nervous system allows for 100% expression of health and life!
