The mind/body connection is very real. Often, they are one, so if your mind is experiencing emotional or mental stress it will affect your body, and vice versa will happen if your body is experiencing physical stress.
In fact, stress is a catalyst that can lead to other health issues, including anxiety, depression, a lack of sleep and ultimately, illness. As stress attacks your body, it becomes more difficult for your body to function correctly and accomplish anything.

Your brain is responsible for communicating with the rest of your body through your neurological system. Your spine plays a big part in that. The spine is the backbone of your nervous system and houses the pathways to which your brain sends and receives messages to and from the rest of your body. As your body experiences stress, your muscles tense, and when your muscles tense, it can pull your spine out of alignment. Over time, your spine being out of alignment can create issues with your body functioning properly.
The Effects Of Stress
Everyone responds to stress in different ways, whether the stress is positive or negative or is physical or emotional, the effects will not only affect your body but your mind as well. Routine chiropractic treatments work to lessen the pain and relax muscles, and by releasing the stress and tension in your body, your mind will follow suit and release that stress and anxiety as well.
Not only will chiropractic care decrease muscle tension, but will also help to increase brain activity and bring balance back to the nervous system. Spinal manipulations are a holistic approach to overall wellness. They work to remove the stress and anxiety you are experiencing and return your body back to its natural balance so it can function the way it was designed to.
