What is a Subluxation

When a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position, this is referred to in the chiropractic profession as a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. Chemical/toxic stress and mental/emotional stressors can cause spinal misalinment as well. When a vertebrae is subluxated, it begins to put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the life giving healing enegy in the form of mental impulse that flows out to the cells and tissues of your body. As a result your body will slowly breakdown and lose its ability to function properly.  Pain and symptoms begin to occur. 

As time goes by and a subluxation remains untreated, the spine and surrounding tissues such as discs can begin to degenerate. This degeneration becomes more difficult to reverse as time goes by as the surrounding muscles, nerves and bones begin to adjust to the new shape. The body is an amazing vitalistic organism. It will start to accommodate these changes by compensating in other areas. The longer this goes on, the more difficult it is and the longer it takes to get back to near perfect position.As important, consider what occurs at the end of that nerve within you.

Many people have enjoyed a return to health and well being by going to the chiropractor and receiving chiropractic specific adjustments.
