Back Pain and Emotions
..or Chiropractic – its not all in the back!

Back pain and emotions go hand in hand, and one can be the cause of the other.
Common emotions caused by chronic back pain include depression, irritation and hopelessness. Likewise, if you are under constant emotional stress some people tighten their back muscles, resulting in back pain.

So what can you do to resolve emotional back ache?

The rule of thumb is to listen, learn, and take action. Listen to what you are trying to tell yourself, learn what is stressing you out, and put a plan of action together – a strategy to cope.

This can include avoiding unnecessary stress – such as the stress you put upon yourself, or it can be learning active ways to resolve stressful situations. It can also include building your resistance to stress, or your ability to handle more.

The most effective ways to build your resilience are of course things like exercise and meditation which actively turn off the stress centres of the brain.

Then there are simple techniques such as EFT (emotional freedom technique) or TFT (thought field therapy) – more about which can be found in the patients only section of the website: (OH15)

If you want to really find out the power of EFT then I strongly recommend contacting Glynes Mewton at www.supportedjourneys.co.uk or on 07960042387.

One of the great things about chiropractic, especially when combined with Cranial Laser Reflex Technique, is that it too works on turning off the stress centres in the brain, as well as working directly on physical issues too.

Over the years I’ve had many people come to me feeling low, even depressed, but as their spine starts moving more, and they make consistent, steady improvements in lifestyle their mood improves. I once had a manic depressive say he stopped getting such roller coaster rides of emotions once he started chiropractic.

If you want to discuss any of this further, or feel your aches and pains have a more emotional rather than physical cause, then give the clinic a call today – 01707 662 704 – and we’ll figure out an appropriate strategy for you.
