How Does Chiropractic Care Reduce Stress?

On a simple level, the spinal joints and the surrounding muscles tend to be affected by stress. There are often some minor joint problems in the spine, which do not bother you until you are stressed. Then the brain seems to multiply those minor problems until huge amounts of pain are surrounding the spine either in the shoulders, the mid back, or the low back. Often the upper neck muscles and joints are affected and this may result in headaches. Since many people do not know how chiropractors can help to eliminate spinal and muscular problems, they take over the counter medicines in the hope of relief. At first, it may help, but in the end, you are just masking the symptoms and not dealing with the primary causes of the pain.

According to a 2011 study “after receiving a chiropractic neck adjustment, patients had altered brain activity in the parts of the brain responsible for pain processing and stress reactions. They also had significantly reduced cortisol levels, indicating decreased stress. Participants also reported lower pain scores and a better quality of life after treatment. The findings suggest that chiropractic adjustments affect how our body interprets and copes with pain, which could enhance its response to disease and injury. As scientists learn more about the human body and the role of the nervous system, it is clear that chiropractic can play a powerful role in promoting true wellness, rather than just symptom relief.”
