A 2020 study in the medical journal Spine showed that there is a strong association between financial worry and chronic spinal pain. The pain noted was both neck and low back pain. This study is very timely seeing that we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and so many have been financially affected. Further study is needed, but some of the theories behind this association are increased inflammation, increased muscle tension, and/or decreased self-care during times of financial worry. This study serves as another reminder to not let our health suffer even during times of uncertainty.  Please call Marcum Chiropractic at 503-235-7130 so we can help you stay healthy no matter what the world throws at us.  We are here for you!
