Does Stress Cause My Spine to Go Out of Alignment?

Stress not only takes away from your health. It takes away from your life. It takes away from those things that you want to be able to do and from the ability to live the life that you deserve.

The Link Between Stress &  Subluxation

The biggest issue caused by stress that most people have no idea about is subluxation. Subluxation is when your spine is not in the right position, and it’s putting constant pressure and interference on your nervous system.

Your nervous system is the master controller of health and healing in your body. It’s what determines how healthy you are, how great you feel and what your future is going to be like.

Our bodies are under chronic stresses including:

  • Physical stress from prolonged sitting and heavy lifting
  • Accidents and injuries
  • Emotional stress
  • Holiday stress due to financial strain and too many commitments
  • Chemical stress from the parties that you have been to, from sugar, from holiday cookies and sweets, from falling off track with your nutrition plan

All of these stresses are putting constant pressure on your spine and your nervous system, causing subluxation. New Life Chiropractic in Rocklin has a high success rate in helping people feel better because we specialize in finding and correcting subluxation.

If you’ve never had your spine or your nervous system checked by a corrective care chiropractor, and you haven’t had any x-rays in the last three to six months, you could have devastating health effects going on right now, and you may not even know it. The best thing I recommend is to come in and get checked by a corrective care chiropractor like what we do in my office.
