Chronic Stress-Related Injuries

Chronic Stress Injuries and Their Complicated Sources

Stress is unhealthy. It's a common phrase, and people suffering from stress know how sick, painful, or generally downtrodden it can be.

But why? Can it be treated? Can the symptoms of stress be managed while you try to solve the core issue, whether or not it's under your control?


Yes, you can! Boca Health & Wellness Center in Boca Raton, FL can help you relieve the pain and stress in helpful ways. Consider a few details about stress injuries and the ways a chiropractic care professional can help you.

What Does Stress Mean?

Before discussing stress injuries, it's time for a brief discussion of stress in general. In many situations, mental stress (which includes emotional stress) causes the body to react in physical ways. In short, mental stress can cause physical stress. A problem with your mind can make you tense up in your body the wrong way, either consciously, subconsciously, or with internal systems you have no control over.

How Does Stress Lead to Injury?

Everyone has different stressors from the environment, society, personal and professional lives, and external factors.

One of the most common causes of stress injury from mental stress is in the form of tension. Clenching your teeth can cause damage to your enamel, overstress your jaw muscles, and even lead to neck pain.

Many people clench their fists and raise their shoulders subconsciously. These habits have been a big part of modern stress awareness, especially on social media. Unclench your jaws, relax your shoulders, and take a deep breath. Those are good home techniques, and a chiropractic care service can deliver even more help.

In addition to massage therapy and any necessary chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor can help you find ways to make your life less stressful. From recommending breathing techniques to stress relief exercises, there are multiple ways for chiropractors to guide your recovery.

A frank discussion opens a path for referrals and other services. If it's all too much to handle, a chiropractor can help lighten the load and engage other services, such as therapy, financial assistance for medical care, and other options you may not consider immediately.
