The connection between your stress levels and spinal health is mediated through your nervous system. Consider the physical changes that occur when you experience stress – tensing of muscles, altered breathing patterns, and movement patterns often change. These physical manifestations of stress can result in various discomforts such as neck pain, back pain, and shoulder pain.
Why it matters:
Stress frequently initiates a cycle of pain and/or dysfunction, involving your nervous, immune, and musculoskeletal systems. For instance, heightened stress may lead to reduced exercise, resulting in pain and stiffness, negatively impacting mental health, and ultimately contributing to more stress.
