Pain and stress go hand in hand
One influences the other or, more pointedly, the two perpetuate each other. Subluxation, which refers to slight misalignments of the vertebrae, is a perfect example of this concept. When you are stressed, your muscles tighten and remain contracted, often for the duration of a given stressful period. Tight muscles in the back pull the vertebrae out of alignment and pressurize nerves that exit at each level of the spine. This physical pain then contributes further to anxiety and the stress cycle recycles upon itself.
Reducing stress by addressing subluxation
Stress, and the accompanying problems it causes, is a complex condition that results from a mosaic of internal and external factors. At Scorca Chiropractic, we hope to help you address one rather important input of the stress cycle: pain. Using core chiropractic techniques including spinal adjustment and mobilization, we restore spinal alignment and reduce impingement on the spinal nerves. A further benefit of spinal adjustment is improvement in the mobility of spinal joints and increased circulation, which helps to oxygenate and nourish cells throughout the body.
