Chiropractic Stress Management May Boost Overall Health

Posted by Admin on May 6, 2009

When the wear and tear of life start to “get on our nerves,” it’s exactly our nerves that may be getting impacted. Stress bears down on the nervous system, and that in turn can create problems with headaches, backache, neck pain, fatigue or digestive difficulties. And that’s where chiropractic care comes in. Chiropractors’ primary area of expertise is the nervous system, especially the spine. The nervous system as a whole is the coordinator of all of the body’s processes – including those in the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, endocrine and musculoskeletal systems. So to correct problems in those systems, the chiropractor focuses on the all-important nervous system, which underpins them all.

To do this, chiropractors concentrate on the spinal column – the bony and cartilaginous armor that encases the spinal cord. The spine is made up of bony segments known as vertebrae, and chiropractors believe that, if these are out of alignment, they can interfere with the normal operation of the host of nerves that branch off from the spinal cord to control the manifold workings of the body. Such misalignments are said to cause many unexpected illnesses.

The chiropractor adjusts the spine and surrounding muscles, attempting to correct the cause of nerve interference and irritation, to release muscle tension and to increase circulation.

So, when one begins to feel what may be the result of the stress of life – headaches, digestive problems, aches and pains, sleeplessness – it may be a sign to visit not only one’s local general practitioner, but one’s local chiropractor as well. An adjustment of one’s spine and a correction of one’s nervous system may help do the trick to restore health.
