One effect of chronic stress is prolonged muscle tension and contraction.
This muscle tension creates uneven pressures on the bony structures of the body, often leading the misalignment of the spinal column, joints and ligaments.
Chronic stress also leads to nerve irritation.
Adjustments by our chiropractors also reduce spinal nerve irritation, and improve blood circulation.
These changes may be enough, in many cases, to convince the brain to turn off the fight or flight response, beginning the process of healing.
A healthy and balanced spine is one key to effectively managing stress.
