Is Life Stressing Out Your Neck and Back?

By Sandy Schroeder

If you have tight spots in your neck, or rigid muscles in your upper back, stress may be targeting you. If you find yourself hunching over your work with every muscle clenched, you know how this happens. When too many demands collide, our bodies tense up. The back and neck may absorb the pain.

Finding a solution can start with your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. The Joint staff of licensed chiropractors are well equipped to help.

When you come in, your chiropractor will want to talk about your pain, your normal routine, and your health history. Too much pressure can lead to anxiety that shows up in the body. Releasing that pressure can begin with the spine.

The spine houses the intricate nervous system that controls everything we do. When the spine works well, so do we.

Your chiropractor may help to achieve pain relief and tension release in the back, neck, and other joints with a spinal adjustment. The adjustment is accomplished as a targeted movement to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities.

You may feel pain relief and more energy, alertness or relaxation. You may also experience better sleep, improved digestion or better metabolism.

As you evaluate results, you may use weekly 15-minute adjustments to keep the wellness going. At the same time, you may want to release more stress with choices like these.

  • Relaxing Neck Stretch -  Stand facing into a corner. Put forearms on the wall. Lean in to feel a stretch in the chest and shoulders. Push back and repeat.
  • Reach Out – Staying in touch with friends, family and neighbors can be a natural way to let go of tension. Make time for coffee, lunches or dinners, and enjoy the interaction.
  • Look Inward – Pausing to reflect on your blessings, and breathing a little with a simple meditation, can siphon off lingering stress.
  • Stay Active – Nothing makes the day feel better than a good walk, run, or workout. Stick with doctor-approved exercises and fit them into each day.
  • Let Go of the Little Stuff – At the end of the day, if you are still wound up, you may be hanging on to too much stuff. Focus on the important stuff, like your family, and let the rest wait.

See The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you for the support you need now. An affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Weekend and evening hours are available, and walk-in visits are welcome. No appointments are needed.
