Stress is especially more dominant during the holidays. Stress comes from 3 areas of your life, one may be more dominant than the other. This includes stress from structural, chemical, or emotional areas. The structural or physical stress may cause weakness of the spine & misalign the vertebrae. This affects the nerves between the vertebrae causing nerve interference. Misaligned spine may be caused from physical trauma such as auto accidents, work injuries, repetitive motion, or poor posture. Chemical stress comes from environment, poor diet, or lifestyle.

Stress comes from 3 major areas in our lives. Structural stress from physical trauma, repetitive motion, prolong positions can cause a misaligned spine. Chemical stress from poor diets, environment, or poor lifestyle. Emotional stress from personal, work, finances, or being worried about our economy and future. All of these stressors can cause an imbalance to the spine and nervous system.
The Nerve Interference Model: The brain sends messages through the nervous system to the body, organs, tissues, and cells. If the spine is aligned, there is no nerve interference, and correct communication between the brain and body allows the body to function at 100%.
Stress coming from structural, chemical or emotional can cause the spine to misalign, also called subluxation. This will cause nerve interference, blocking communication between the brain and body, organs, tissue, or cells. This will lead to malfunction, the body immediately begins to compensate. The malfunction worsens, and may lead to disease, an incoordination of systems of the body, or loss of function, reduced to less than 60%. The last thing your body will signal something is wrong are symptoms.
Chiropractic starts by relieving the symptoms, which brings up your function to 35% to 40%, depending on your condition. Corrective care helps get to the cause of the symptoms, malfunction, and corrects the subluxation of nerve interference which is the first thing that started the problems. The goal is to get you to optimal function as close to 100%. Corrective care consists of improving function, mobility, strength, and stabilization. Until you reach maximum correction, and optimal function, then you remain under maintenance, known as wellness or preventative, to keep the correction stable. These are periodic check-ups determined by your progress, and recommendations by your chiropractor.
