Fatigue and Stress have obvious effects on our daily lives. When trying to balance work, children, and home demands, the most common complaints are tension, irritability, and headaches. With an increase in adrenaline, the back and neck often develop misalignments (or subluxations) and commonly result in "back problems." A common misconception is that the "muscle tension" is the primary problem. Actually, "muscle tension" is a symptom of a more serious problem which is the subluxation. Chiropractic techniques treat the subluxation which consequently treats the symptoms of back and neck pain and headaches.
Sometimes the connection between the pain and its cause is obvious because you have been hunched over a desk all day trying to meet a deadline. But other times the emotional connection to back pain is more subtle. Unfortunately, this can lead to a vicious cycle wherein fatigue and stress can cause a backache, and, in turn, the pain causes additional fatigue.
Think of the body as a finely tuned machine. When all the moving parts fit together perfectly the machine runs smoothly at its optimal potential even when going up hill or pulling a heavy load. If even one of the moving parts becomes misaligned the machine cannot run so smoothly. Friction may occur and affect the other moving parts. Even the lightest load or going down hill can be a struggle. The machine cannot function at its optimal potential.
Does your "machine" suffer from stress and fatigue and not function at its optimal potential? If so, you may benefit from chiropractic treatment.
