We tend to blow our fuse with overloaded systems because of stress. Your nervous system is taking the hit. Your body will be overactive in “fight or flight” mode.
Common examples in everyday life that drive our physiological fight/flight response in the body are:
-Driving in traffic
-Feeling overwhelmed with getting everything done
-Worrying about people, or the future
-Anxiety about a presentation or social occasion
And lots more!
It’s not always life or death situations. These physiological responses can impact our bodies in profound ways. Stress hormones such as cortisol, norepinephrine and adrenaline are released. Heart rate increases, as does your blood pressure and breathing. If we are continuously overactive, we will continuously release these hormones that can end up doing some serious damage to our bodies.
Symptoms of pain will arise – your body’s way of communicating there is dysfunction rooted in your nervous system. Something is signalling that you are having trouble healing and functioning!
Chiropractic helps the nervous system function at its best and allows you to heal better. It helps relieve the impact of stress and improves your body’s adaptability to it. As we adjust the spine, we remove the interference between the brain and the body. Children and adults can benefit from chiropractic, as everyone experiences physical, chemical, and emotional stress that load up the Nerve System.
Many people assume that the primary focus of Chiropractic care benefits only those people who suffer from back and neck pain. This misconception takes root through word of mouth, past experiences, and even false information. The truth is, Chiropractic has a greater purpose than people have been led to believe! The spine shares an intimate connection to all functions in the body through the wiring of the nervous system.
Chiropractic adjustments improve so many aspects of health and performance for babies, kids, and adults of all ages. Health is not in the absence of pain! Health is in how you function and in the quality of your life. Are you living as healthy and adaptable to stress as you can? Is your brain and body communicating with ease?
