Did you know that stress is a leading cause of illness? Stress can cause anxiety, depression and even sleep difficulties. It can also trigger physical pain, especially in the back. Our emotions can cause muscle tension, affecting the function of our spine. Back pain often results from this mind-body connection.
If neglected, back pain can become chronic. Which in turn limits our ability to engage in physical activities. The resulting social isolation can produce depression, adding still more stress, becoming a vicious cycle.
What's the best way to reduce emotional, physical and chemical stress? For starters, be grateful. Look for the silver lining in difficult circumstances. Journal your thoughts. Talk to a trusted friend. Exercise and take time to relax. Breathe deeply, improve your diet and of course, get adjusted. Chiropractic care can help reduce nerve system tension, improving your ability to tolerate stress.
