emotional stress causes physiological changes

Emotional stress causes physiological changes:

  • Muscles tighten during a fight-or-flight response to stress. When someone experiences chronic stress they all experience consistent muscle tension, especially in the neck and shoulders. This increased tension can strain soft tissues causing poor posture and pulling vertebrae out of alignment. Some of the most common symptoms of stress are neck pain and tension headaches.
  • Acute and chronic stress impacts the respiratory syndrome resulting in shallow breathing that prevents the body from delivering enough oxygen to the rest of the body and brain. Stress also triggers asthma attacks for some people.
  • Over time, stress can cause poor sleep quality eating habits and can negatively impact the immune, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and endocrine systems. 

These health problems and the associated pain they cause are made worse when stress levels are higher than usual. Our chiropractor can help!
