How does stress affect the health of my spine?

When at all possible, prevent and reduce stress in your life. Periods of stress are often accompanied by loss of regular proper movement and activity.

  • Stress can cause muscles to tense up, headaches, and other body aches.
  • Acute stress may also lower your immune system and make you susceptible to viruses and other illness.
  • Get plenty of rest and stick to a regular sleep schedule. 8 hours of sleep each night is recommended for adults.
  • Develop effective ways for your body and mind to deal with stress: Going for a walk, taking up a yoga class or reading a book are just some options that may help you cope.
