By Genevieve Cunningham

Did you know that stress could cause physical pain? Crazy, right? We all know that it can cause mental anguish, but physical discomfort can come along with it. The hard part is knowing what pains are caused by stress and what pains are caused by something else. It can be hard to know the difference. Luckily, no matter where your pain is coming from, there's a really effective way to deal with it. If you've noticed an increase of stress in your life, take a look at these tips for getting rid of the stress and the discomfort too.

Mental Discomfort

It's no secret that stress causes mental discomfort. It might make you feel blue or anxious. It might even give you headaches. Luckily, there are ways to deal with this aspect of stress:

How to Deal

  • Management plan - Get a plan in order to use anytime the stress is overwhelming. This might be deep breathing exercises, reading a book, writing in a journal, or another activity that calms the nerves. 

  • Activity - Stress thrives on an idle mind. Get busy! Find a hobby or activity that you can really put your mind into. This can lower stress and take your mind off your troubles for a while.

Physical Discomfort

Many are surprised to hear that stress causes physical pain -- until they really think about it. Of course it causes pain! Some examples include neck pain, back tension, stiff joints, and headaches. But there are ways to deal with this too. A few methods include:

How to Deal

  • Exercise - Exercise is great for reducing stress. When your body is engaged physically, it lets go of the mental stress for a while. And luckily, exercise can also work out those sore spots and make your body more comfortable overall.

  • Chiropractic care - Chiropractic care is great for getting rid of pain. Chiropractors adjust the spine, remove tension, and reduce pain. With the pain gone, you probably won't feel as stressed either. If you're serious about good health and less stress, it's a good idea to add chiropractic care to your regular routine now.
