The Cause of Subluxation - Life Stressors

Let us take a look at what causes subluxations in the first place. There are three main categories of stressors that cause subluxation. There are physical stressors, emotional stressors, and chemical stressors. In all cases the effect of the stressor is that the body can not adapt and bring itself back to normal function again. Much of these stressors are a result of our lifestyle choices so there is much we can do to prevent these from happening. Once the subluxations have been created though, they must be corrected or they will continue to cause damage. Let's look at each type of stressor.

Physical Stressors

Women live a very physical life these days. Most mom’s not only have to deal with the full-time job of chasing their Fender Bender children around all day, they also have to go to work. Little children involve constant bending and lifting. Work may involve excessive driving, sitting at a computer, or some type of repetitive task done for 8 hours a day ore more.

Then there are the more aggressive bangs and bruises along the road of life. Sometimes quite literally in the form of a car accident. Other times it can be a slip on the ice, or a tumble when out enjoying the slopes in the winter.

If any of these stressors become more than the body can handle it will create subluxations. If the body is not able to correct Tight Neck Muscles these subluxations it will create dysfunction in the body and the longer they are present the more dysfunction they will create.

These subluxations, which is a term for nerve interference, can sometimes be felt as tight muscles that run down the back of the neck into the shoulders. They can also be the reason for the reduced energy at the end of the day, or worse, the beginning of the day. It can also be the reason behind the weekly or even daily headaches.

Chemical Stressors

Woman SmokingThe air we breathe, the water we drink, and the foods we eat are where most of our chemical stressors in life, in terms of toxins, come from. The pesticides, industrial waste, and car fumes are just some of the examples that we all deal with daily. Some people make it even worse through the use of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs. Drugs prescribed by a doctor are not exempt either. They all have ‘side effects’ because they are all toxic to the body and these will contribute to the formation of subluxations in the body. Aspirin use is the third leading cause of preventable death, so it is certainly capable of overwhelming the body and contributing to subluxations.

If someone is exposed to a lot of chemical stressors it increases the likelihood that they will Poor Nutrition have subluxations. Even if the chemical stressor has been removed, such as someone who quits smoking, there can be subluxations that will be left behind and they will continue to cause health damage until they are corrected.

Another type of chemical stressor comes in the form of the absence of proper nutrients. All of our cells need certain nutrients to function properly. If the diet is not getting all of the proper nutrients the cells need then the cells will begin to fail and this failure will create subluxations.

Emotional Stressors

Mom JugglingWomen have more responsibilities today than ever before it seems. Many are mothers and that role is extremely demanding just by itself. Keeping track of their children’s needs. Making sure appointments are kept. Making sure meals are prepared on time and in a nutritious way. Making sure their kids are getting all the support they need to grow into healthy adults. There is a lot of mental and emotional stress around all of this.

As well as being mothers many women today are also working at a job, or building a career, or running a business. All of these activities bring with it further demands. There is new material to study, deadlines to meet, and people to report to. No question this can all put the system into overwhelm. Sometimes you get the feeling that the harder you work the farther behind you become. This frustration isn't just a major drain on your energy level and your ability to stay happy and positive, it contributes to damage to your nervous system in the form of subluxations. Once subluxations are present it just gets harder because now your system isn't functioning at its best. All tasks are now harder than they were before and your health goes down a viscious spiral of decline.

ArguementA nuturing loving relationship is also an important aspect in most women's life. This isn't always an easy task. A good relationship always takes work. Sometimes the amount of work it takes is more than we can deal with and our system is once again over burdened. It is a bit of a double hit because our intimate relationship is suppose to lift us up and support us in life. Not only are we not getting that support we are actually developing more dysfunction. This makes it even harder to nurture that relationship because or energy is down and our patience is short.

Running the household, balancing the budget, paying the mortgage, and scheduling the Paying the Bills house maintenance are tasks that take time and energy and at times it feels like there is no way you can get everything done. That’s overwhelm. The fast pace of life today, the difficult economic times, the uncertainty of job security, and dwindelling returns on our investments, are all putting extra stressors on us today. Some say more than we have ever had to deal with in the past.

So all three of these stressors contribute to the formation of subluxations. Our lifestyle certainly plays a role in terms of how much damage is occurring. Once the damage is present it needs to be corrected or it will continue to weaken the system. Usually this weakening is a very slow process but when the body finally runs out of room to compensate for the damage it can bring the whole system to a halt. The immune system might fail, some joints might wear out, or the body just won’t be able to produce enough energy to get through the day any more. Being aware of the stressors in life is important, and we must also act to correct the subluxations as soon as they are created so we can stay ahead of the breakdown.
