Stress and Chiropractic

The most common complaints of patients to their doctors are headache, sore back and fatigue. Physical illness can be caused by accidents, stress and chemical factors (drugs, etc.)

It is important to remember that whatever the origin of a disorder, affects human body and will manifest in the nervous system. The nervous system is the organizer and coordinator of all body processes. Other systems dependent on the integrity of the nervous system to function properly.

This includes the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, and musculoskeletal system endocrine skeletal. Hence the most direct method to correct a wrong is directly related to balance the nervous system. This is precisely the way that Chiropractic used to manage stress.

At this point we will define chiropractic and stress before we can discuss how health system works to restore the nervous system.

Chiropractors like Chiro 1st Chiropractic in Annapolis, MD, work primarily with the spine because it is spinal cord, which is the “switch” of the nervous system using the passing nerves to the brain and carry the message to all parts of the body. Nerves out of the vertebrae of the spine. When these vertebrae are out of proper alignment and irradiation may be interference with normal activity nerves. The interference can disturb the normal function of the body and cause diseases. Similarly, all diseases affecting the nervous system and can cause the vertebrae desalinize.

Chiropractors are specialists in the nervous system and are trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the nervous system and its accompanying symptoms.

Stress in the negative sense, can be defined simply as the imbalance Body systems due to overstimulation. These irritating stimuli can be physical, chemical or mental. This leads to increase the rate of use and wear on the body. Medical research suggests that up to 80% of all diseases are related to stress.

The most common symptoms include headache, back pain and fatigue as well as cardiovascular disorders (high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, etc…) digestive problems (Ulcers, colitis, etc…) and difficulty sleeping.

There are 2 principles that unite chiropractic care and stress. The first is the principle MOVE. Chiropractic is founded on the premise that the body heals itself. You can do this when the nervous system is free of interference transmissions between nerves and body pass freely. Hence, full range of motion of the musculoskeletal system is essential to the integrity of the nervous system. Chiropractic manipulation is directed to increase the range of motion and decrease muscle restrictions.

The second principle related to chiropractic and stress management is the phenomenon of REFLECTIONS. A reflection occurs when a body system is unbalanced and because another system may not function properly. It is widely accepted that our condition emotional affects our physical state. Perhaps the best known reaction of the body to

Stress is the muscular neck pain and headache. This mechanism is known as psychosomatic reflex. A similar mechanism occurs when emotional stresses cause a stomach ulcer. This is a reflection psicovisceral.

Chiropractic has long been studied that organ disorders or muscles can cause mental / emotional stress. How does this happen? Bone cord is the control panel of the nervous system. The message of the diseased part of the body communicates with the brain via the spinal column. This irritated nerve signal ends in the brain, causing mental agitation. This is called reflex or psychosomatic psicovisceral.

Prolonged muscle tension, no matter where it manifests in the body, followed leads to changes in personality and behavior.

Now we must ask the obvious question: How does chiropractic and handling relieve stress’ symptoms and more importantly, extinguish the cause of the imbalance nervous system?

Chiropractic (“by hand”) administers a series of manipulations “adjustments” to the spine and the muscles around it. These settings restore fatigue or stress by removing nerve irritation, clearing muscle tension and improving circulation.

The combination of stress reduction techniques and chiropractic care allows the mind / body naturally does what you do best: heal itself to better quality of life!
