Stress Overloads Nerves

Stress Overloads Nerves

stress overloads nerves

There’s good stress and bad stress. An example of good stress would be a 20-minute workout for someone already in good shape. However, if you’ve lost your health, our interest would be in the “bad” stress you’ve experienced. Which comes in three flavors:

  • Physical Stress
  • Emotional Stress
  • Chemical Stress

Physical stress, like car accidents, repetitive motions and even the birth process can exceed your body’s ability to accommodate. Same with emotional stress, such as anger, grief, fear or guilt. Chemical stress, such as poor diet, preservatives, pollution and alcohol can overwhelm your nervous system. This produces what we Missouri chiropractors call a subluxation.

A subluxation is just a big word that chiropractors use to mean that the nervous system is in overwhelm, tightening muscles along the spine and elsewhere, interfering with the ability of your brain to communicate with the rest of your body.

Sometimes this produces pain. But you already know pain is not the problem!
