Back and Neck Pain
Neck pain and back pain go together like the classic combination of peanut butter and jelly, sometimes they are separate, but most often they come in a pair. This pair is a common reason for people to miss work and can be very very painful! Neck and back pain can possibly be caused by malfunctioning in the discs or joints in the upper part of the back and lower portion of the neck. This painful combination is usually treated with medications.
The use of medications merely treat the symptoms of your back and neck pain and they ignore the underlying problem. There is another alternative to help alleviate your neck and back pain – chiropractic care.
How Stress Affects Your Beck And Neck Pain
The muscles located in your neck and upper back can become irritated. When these muscles experience stress the nerves that surround the muscles can become inflamed. Within this same area exist discs that can also experience problems. When discs experience degeneration or begin to bulge, they are not doing the job they were intended to do, providing a barrier between the vertebrae and protect the nerves. Pain is a result of the nerves being inflamed.
There are three different types of stress:
- Mental/emotional stress
- Chemical stress
- Physical stress
Mental and emotional stress can cause you to keep your back and muscles tense throughout the day and can affect your hormone production. Chemical stress can have negative effects on your body’s natural hormone production. Physical stress can lead to muscle degeneration and strains your body. All types of stress negatively affects your nervous system and can lead to pain, especially back and neck pain. When you learn ways to help lessen the amount of stressors that are present in your life your body will experience less of the negative effects that these stressor have on your body. After neck and back pain begin, however, lessening the stressors cannot eliminate your existing pain. There is a natural solution out there that will be able to help you relieve this pain!
Physical Stress Can Affect Your Pain
It can be easy to overlook the effect that physical stress can have on your body. It is easy to identify where emotional stress can be originating from, deadlines at work or maybe trouble at home. Dealing with all of these emotional stressors in life can sometimes overshadow the other aspects of life and we can forget about the toll our physical actions take on our body. Your head is huge compared to your neck; think about balancing a bowling ball on your finger for the rest of your life. The head weighs about twelve pounds and all of that weight is balanced on your neck which contains bones that are about the size of your finger and thumb shaped into a circle. The muscles that have to support that are strained enough as it is, now add on top of that the stress of lifting things, slouching over a computer, and sharp movements. No wonder you are having neck and back pain!
