Stress enters our lives in two forms: physical and mental. Physical stress, like injuries or repetitive motions, damage our structural health and as a result affect our body’s biomechanics.
Mental stress is often more prolonged. As a result, it’s responsible for the release of more chemicals throughout your body. Cortisol, a stress hormone naturally produced by your body, tenses muscles and prepares the body for a ‘fight-or-flight’ scenario.
Long, repetitive periods of mental stress can wreak havoc on your body and leave you in physical pain.
The effect of stress on the body can be managed by chiropractic care. Adjustments fix the vertebral subluxations caused by long, tense periods of mental stress or the impactful damage caused by physical injury.
