Repetitive motions (painting the ceiling), postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted) and whiplash injuries from a car accident are physical stresses. So are slips and falls … even being born!
Ever faced an impossible deadline at work? Or grieved over the loss of a loved one? Notice the posture of someone who is depressed. Feelings of frustration or powerlessness in the workplace are common forms of emotional stress.
Today’s environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, vaccinations, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone. When your body reacts by “tripping a circuit breaker” and causing subluxation, chiropractic care can help. Stress can’t be completely eliminated, but regular chiropractic care can help you better accommodate and adapt to it. To learn more about how to combat stress, please give us a call 412-GOT-BACK.
