Not all stress is bad. A 20-minute workout at the gym for a fit 25-year old is good stress. The same workout for your 75-year old grandmother would likely be bad stress.

Physical Stress
Repetitive motions (painting the ceiling), postural distortions (falling asleep on the couch with your neck twisted) and whiplash injuries (from a car accident) are physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Even being born is stressful on the baby.

Chemical Stress
Today’s environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone.

Emotional/Mental Stress
Ever faced an impossible deadline at work? Or grieved the loss of a loved one? Notice the posture of someone who is depressed. Frustration and a sense of powerlessness are also common forms of emotional stress.

When your body reacts by ‘tripping a circuit breaker’ and causes subluxation, chiropractic care may help.

Stress cannot always be eliminated. Regular chiropractic adjustments and care can help patients adapt and manage these stresses more appropriately.

Regard a subluxation as your body’s reaction to stress.
