A subluxation is the result of the bones in your spinal column, also called your vertebrae, being misaligned or malpositioned effecting the brain and body’s ability to communicate efficiently. These are often found by the chiropractor using objective measures such as motion palpation, orthopedic tests, neurological tests, and x-rays.
Subluxation | sub = less than | luxation = dislocation
A subluxation is a response to stress on the body. Muscles can spasm and get taught. Vertebrae lose range of motion when they lock up. Nerve function can be diminished by being compressed and choked. This interference effects the body’s ability to function properly. This interference depletes the ability of the brain to send out communication signals effectively, and the body to receive them.
If your high speed internet is dropped it can be frustrating. But dropped service between your brain and body can cause a serious effect on your health and wellness.
Nerve communication that has been deteriorated can be an underlying cause of your health problems beyond back pain, neck, pain, and headaches. For example. Interfere with nerve impulses going to or from your lungs = problems with your lungs.
Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. These nerve impulses travel through your spine via your spinal cord. So having a spine free of vertebral subluxations is essential for optimal health.
Only a chiropractor detects subluxations. Only a chiropractic adjustments can naturally reduce the effect of subluxations on your nervous system.
