Stress doesn’t directly cause headaches – it’s our body’s reaction to stress that triggers them. When we believe we’re in a dangerous situation, our heart and breathing rate, blood flow, and blood pressure all increase rapidly. That is a reaction not a cause.

Pretty intense, right. Today, we can find ourselves reacting to the pressure of taking a driving test and having to parallel park, do they still teach that? However it is with the same internal reactions as if something truly threatening (like a tiger !) were chasing us…

In fact, common modern-day triggers for heightened stress include lack of exercise, sleep, downtime, and even physical tension – things we all tend to experience semi-regularly. So, if it’s been some time since your last tension-soothing adjustment, what are you waiting for? By getting adjust it helps to regulate the body via the bodies nervous system and keep it in a parasympathetic state (rest and digest) vs the fight and flight stress of day to day life, checking emails, text, finishing reports, projects on time and closing the Big Deal!!! So what are you waiting for, get you and your family checked today to help to keep the body functioning in a relaxed state thus not triggering stress that may then lead to dysfunction, Ie tension headache.
