All of us at one time or many are faced with situations that we have to deal with.
What happens is that those of us that are dealing with chronic pain, or have recently had several months of pain, need to deal with the various stresses in life.
Stress can become so much of an evil thing to people dealing with chronic pain. When stress hits us, we tend to tighten up, cervical patients may start to hike up their shoulders, lumbar patients may start to shift one way or the other.
After doing that for a while, our muscles tighten up, which in turn puts a strain on some part of our body, which in turn, do you get the picture?
We all go through rough periods in our life that are not directly related to our spinal problems. It is so important that we learn how to control those 'external' stressors so that they do not impact our already impacted spines.
