Although stress is a normal part of life, and your body has been designed to cope with it, the pressures of a situation will often cause your body to “blow a fuse

The boss starts to think you’re not doing the job he’s paying you to do, and your spouse won’t let you forget that you forgot your daughter’s birthday. To make matters worse, your mother-in-law decides you can’t live without her advice. At about the same time, you start to develop tension headaches, the pain in your low back returns, and your ulcer flares up again. You are probably suffering from a classic case of uncontrolled stress.

Although stress is a normal part of life, and your body has been designed to cope with it, the pressures of a situation will often cause your body to “blow a fuse.” The problem with this stress is that it can show up anytime, anywhere in the body: as a stiff neck, a sore back, an aching muscle, a digestive problem, or as other “mysterious” ailments. It can affect every day routine to the point of making life miserable: you lose sleep, you wake up tired, you feel overwhelmed by simple tasks, and you quickly succumb to feelings of depression and anxiety. Only when stress overwhelms us does it become a disorganizing, destructive influence.

As your body is being subjected to unprecedented pressures, the resulting tension causes the muscles to get tighter and tighter. Muscles of the back and neck are attached to the vertebrae that make up the spinal column. As the muscles tighten up, a bone can become displaced (subluxated). A pinched nerve (subluxation) can also cause the malfunction of one or more organs connected to the central nervous system by the afflicted nerve. The resulting pain causes more stress, which in turn causes more pain. Dr. Miller can help break the cycle of pain by correcting the pinched nerve.

Because chiropractors are trained to recognize symptoms that are triggered or induced by stressful situations, they are well equipped to help patients suffering from stress. Chiropractic works to maintain the integrity of the nervous system, which in turn allows people to adapt better to the inevitable tension in their lives. As soon as it becomes clear that a patient’s problems are related to stress, a chiropractor can help.

Chiropractic care alone will not relieve all the stress in our lives. The real solution to any successful long-term improvement is learning to manage the stress in our lives effectively. You can accomplish this by receiving regular chiropractic adjustments, maintaining a positive mental outlook, strengthening your diet, relaxation techniques, and exercises that will help us control the stress that we encounter every day.
