Stress and tension can naturally accumulate within your body over time.
Whether stress appears in the form of a headache or develops into muscle tension, your mental health has a direct impact on your body.
Stress-Induced Neck Pain
One specific area of your body that tends to hold a significant amount of stress and tension is your neck. Your neck can easily become the epicenter for pain and discomfort when you are exposed to excessive amounts of stress for prolonged periods.
Stress-induced neck pain is referred to as pain that is caused by or heightened by mental or emotional considerations.
An example of this is if your neck becomes injured and the surrounding muscles are strained. The pain you experience may last several weeks because of the type of environmental stress you experience throughout your day.
Many medical researchers believe that stress-induced neck pain is caused by physical elements that take place in the trapezius muscles, which extend from the back of your neck to your shoulders. Other experts cite that there is no direct connection between neck pain and muscle fatigue.
What the Chiropractors at AICA College Park do understand is that neck pain is directly correlated with perceived/personal stress.
