When you come to see a chiropractor, your treatment is effective in restoring the body’s own ability to regulate and heal itself through normalized nervous system function. Most Toronto chiropractic patients come in for back, neck, knee or shoulder pain, but what most people don’t know is that most of this pain can be from body or mental stress.
Stress can come in all shapes and sizes. Trauma stress can be from birth, sports injuries, and any kind of accidents or falls in the past. Simple everyday things like your posture, regular activities or even lack of activities can lead to stress. Toxins in the body are also considered stress like caffeine, tobacco, prescription drugs and alcohol.
There is also a lot of unhealthy chemicals that people put in their bodies like additives, processed foods, preservatives and prepared food also contribute to stress in the body. Stress can also be high over work, your financial situation, relationships, and even being angry can take a toll over your body as well.
Stress will appear in the nervous system and the nervous system has control over all processes of the body. So when stress overwhelms your mind it also overwhelms your body. This chronic wear and tear scenario leads to a compromised immune system and slows other bodily processes like growth, digestion, sleep, respiratory and circulatory functioning.
When we say body stress, a part of your body might be out of place or misaligned. This is what chiropractors call a subluxation. Chiropractors work mainly with the spinal column which transfers information from your brain to the rest of your body. Then the nerves branch off the spinal bones (vertebrae). When the vertebrae are misaligned there can be interference and irritation with the regular activity of the nerves. This interference can disrupt normal functioning throughout the body leading to illness and ultimately pain.
Dr. Kris Dorken has successfully treated patients with many diverse conditions such as infertility, high blood pressure, jaw misalignment and colic. This was all done by freeing the master system of the body – the nervous system – from any interference.
