Major reasons for stress
Now, you may ask about the reasons of stress. Stress usually develops due to three factors, i.e. work, relationships, and money. However, it can also be developed due to health problems such as pains, spinal injury due to accident or any other abnormality in life. Worrying too much about different things can result in stress. This worry can result in tension in the spinal area due to which the stress takes a physical form by producing pains and aches. Long lasting mental and emotional strains can also result in stress. One thing worth mentioning here is that this stress is not good for your digestion and metabolism. Hence, you cannot just ignore stress by considering it a psychological issue.
