When stressed, we tend to contract our shoulders and lower our heads. Taken to the extreme, this posture can bring about increased tension, torque, or stretching of the nerve structures. These obstructed nerves may then cause muscles to contract and vertebrae to move out of alignment in response. While chiropractic treatment may not alleviate the causes of emotional stresses, it can help us achieve a state of good mental health by removing the physical manifestations of stress. As a result of relieving the body of tension and restrictive postures, those under stress may find themselves in better positions to deal with external pressures. By breaking the vicious cycle of emotional pressure, subluxation, and pain, chiropractic helps patients achieve emotional well-being.
