Stress can initiate pain syndromes and aggravate other existing pain conditions.
Research proves disordered breathing causes inflammation, reduced oxygen delivery, impaired blood circulation, and increased release of neurotoxins in the body.
The jaw is particularly vulnerable to stress. Hyper-vigilance can result in clenching, grinding, and improper mastication.
Sustained stress response, fight-or-flight, has been associated with pain phenomena.
The accumulation of maladaptive responses to stress can result in an exaggeration of inflammation with intensely painful results. This type of pain can closely mimic that of a dental infection. It is unfortunate that many patients receive treatment that is unnecessary and ineffective as a result of this type of misdiagnosis.
Respiras Breathing™ offers a non-pharmacologic approach to reversing the effect of breathing-stress connection in pain syndromes.
