A Subluxation (misaligned vertebrae) is a problem in the spine where abnormal position/movement of the vertebrae disturbs communication within the Central Nervous System causing abnormal function in the body. The spinal column houses your spinal cord, and spinal nerves branch out from between your vertebrae to all areas of your body (including muscles, organs, glands, and blood vessels). A subluxation is a misalignment of a vertebra, pinching or choking a spinal nerve, resulting in loss of normal body function.
Chiropractic adjustments correct the spinal misalignments, restoring normal nerve and body function, while also alleviating numerous potential symptoms. Many of your body’s stresses and traumas have a direct effect on your spinal column. Nerves radiating outward from the spine affect every part of your body, as well as many of the systems crucial to your good health. By focusing attention on the spine and those critical nerves, regular chiropractic care also helps people achieve total body wellness and enhanced quality of life.
