3T's Part 2: Traumas
Last issue we discussed thoughts, or stress on the body, and how that may cause subluxations. Another cause is trauma. Most people understand major traumas such as car accidents, sports injuries, or a fall down a flight of stairs and the effect on the body. You may have pain not only at the site of the injury, but it may radiate down an arm, a leg or cause a headache. There should be no doubt that your body is in dys-function and you need to be adjusted.
But what happens with repetitive microtraumas? These are things like postures and habits that develop over time. Individually, they are no big deal. Your body is smart and will adjust. But when this keeps happening, it has an accumulative stress on your body. A common condition seen in the office is teens presenting with neck pain and headaches. They have no history of major trauma or injury, but their symptom is present and getting worse. It is quite common to find this is due to the repeated time on tablets and texting. They spend so many hours with the head and neck bent using these devices that postural changes develop, including forward head carriage and increased curvature of the thoracic spine. This can present as chronic neck pain and suboccipital headaches. Some other examples of repetitive mircotraumas are sitting at a desk, crossing legs, and carrying a heavy purse. All are repeated habits that over time can cause dys-function. Changing positions, stretching, and taking breaks from these repetitive postures are things that you can do to help combat these repetitive stresses on your body, in addition to periodic adjustments.
With winter here, this is a time that can have frequent slips and falls due to the icy conditions, snow shoveling injuries, and winter sporting injuries, in addition to the repetitive stresses of daily life. Regular adjustments are important to keep your body functioning optimally.
