Physical, chemical and emotional stressors bombard us each day. Men are far more likely to feel that stress manifest as an aching back, sore neck and tight muscles. While these may occasionally be the result of overuse or strain, it is more likely an indication of an underlying problem caused by spinal nerve stress.
Spinal nerve stress (also referred to as vertebral subluxations, the subluxation complex, or "pinched nerves") is a misalignment or distortion of the spinal column, skull, hips, and related tissues (the structural system) that irritate, stretch, impinge or otherwise interfere with the proper function of the nerve system (brain stem, spinal cord, spinal nerves and outlying or peripheral nerves). Since the nerve system controls the function of the body, any interference to it can have wide-ranging effects.
When a chiropractor frees the nerve system from spinal stress, the healing power of the body is unleashed: the immune system functions more efficiently, resistance to disease increases, and your body functions more efficiently. You can respond to internal and external environmental stresses more efficiently.
If you are facing a specific health challenge and are wisely hesitant to merely mask symptoms with drugs and are worried about the dangerous, sometimes deadly side effects: see your chiropractor today to have your spine checked and correct any problems that may be detected.
