Did you know that stress is a leading cause of illness? Stress can cause anxiety, depression, and sleep difficulties. It can also trigger physical pain, particularly in the back.
Certain psychological factors can produce muscle tension. Back pain is often a result of this mind-body connection. If neglected, back pain can become chronic.
It can limit your ability to engage in physical and social activities. Meanwhile, joints degenerate and muscles and ligaments can be affected.
Isolation can set in as well as depression and additional stress becoming a vicious cycle.
What is the best way to reduce emotional, physical, and chemical stress in your body?
Break the cycle by reducing stressors in your life.
Talking to a trusted friend, taking the time to relax, exercising, deep breathing, spending time in nature and eating right.
If back pain is preventing you from moving as you want, add chiropractic care to your list.
