The Effects of Body StressEnough is enough.
When stress overload is reached, our bodies are unable to function optimally. At first one may experience fatigue or stiffness; over time these symptoms may progress to pain, numbness, muscle weakness, distorted posture and impaired functioning.
The Consequences of Body Stress
The Effects of Body Stress
When the point of overload is reached, stress may become “locked” into the body and manifests as lines of tension. When tension becomes stored in a physical structure, the tissue is compressed, causing irritation of nerves. Internal organs may stop functioning optimally as a result of disrupted nerve pathways, which may result in discomfort, pain, illness, medical conditions or continuously feeling listless and tired. Body stress in the spine has the most far-reaching effects, as each spinal nerve supplies a large area of the body, both on the surface and internally.
Stiffness may become noticeable, leading to postural distortion, loss of flexibility, pain or numbness.
A person with body stress may also feel tense, tired, and lacking in energy and enthusiasm for life. Headaches, migraines, backache, indigestion, tingling and numbness in the arms and hands, calf cramps, burning and painful feet might all be a result of locked-in body stress.
It is also possible for body stress to be present without the individual feeling any pain or stiffness – he or she will simply come to accept as normal; their sense of experiencing less than 100% well-being.
While the stress or tension remains stored in the body, the body’s natural equilibrium (and muscular tone) is disturbed, causing a reduction in its general efficiency. As its defence mechanisms become weakened, the body becomes less and less able to deal with further stresses, to which it is subjected daily. In this way the individual moves increasingly further away from the optimum state of health.
