How Stress Affects Body Function and Health
Your brain and your body send signals back and forth along the nerves and spinal cord so all of the body’s functions can happen. If your nervous system gets overwhelmed by stress or your spine becomes misaligned by injury, poor posture or habits of movement, these signals that run your body can become distorted or disrupted, affecting the function and health of your body. This is known as vertebral subluxation. Health problems, especially painful ones, can develop and if they aren’t corrected, and most often will get worse over time.
