How Stress Impacts Your Life

Stress can really wreak havoc on your body and mind, therefore on your life. Even the lowest grade of stress can manifest in many ways, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Digestive issues 
  • Aches and pains
  • Muscle tension
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Getting sick more often
  • Low or no libido

Stress can impact your daily decisions and this can affect your overall health. When you’re chronically stressed you don’t exercise as much. You might just reach for those cookies or potato chips, or even a few glasses of wine to diminish your stress. You sleep worse and this makes you more stressed.

Mentally, being stressed constantly means you’re less likely to make good decisions, you can snap at coworkers more easily, and your peace of mind just goes downward.

However, stress can manifest physically. Being stressed constantly can lead to many pathological disorders such as chronic pain, immune disorders, metabolic disease, cardiovascular disorders, and behavior disorders.

Actually, stress and pain can overlap. They both impact cognitive function, disrupt your body’s homeostasis and wellbeing, and so much more. And this is where chiropractic treatment can help. Making frequent visits to your chiropractor can have a potentially positive impact on how you manage stress and its repercussions.

How Stress Affects Your Spine

Many of the repercussions of stress can impact your spine. Actually, spinal abnormalities are sometimes an overlooked manifestation of stress. 

When someone is stressed out, they hold their body differently. Their posture is bad, their muscles get tense. Even breathing patterns can change. All of these stress-related issues can shift your spinal alignment and lead to spinal abnormalities.

Chronic stress can impact the quality of your spine. If there is constant tension in your muscles, they can contract and lock your spine in an abnormal position. This will then interfere with your nervous system’s function.

This is where a vicious cycle begins. If you have poor spinal health, it impacts your physical health and therefore, increases your stress levels. Stress then impacts spinal health.

In the end, your spine is your body’s anchor and the center of your health. Everything that interferes with your spine, in this case, stress, also interferes with your body’s function.

Chiropractic Treatment For Stress
