What is ‘Subluxation’ in Chiropractic?

You could have heard of the term ‘Subluxation’ in Chiropractic. What is subluxation? What are the causes? Why is ‘removal’ of subluxation critical for you to remain healthy, disease-free and pain-free?

A subluxation is the condition of a vertebra that has lost its proper juxtaposition with the one above or the one below, or both; to an extent less than a luxation, which impinges nerves and interferes with the transmission of mental impulses.

“Nature needs no help, just no interference.”

Just like a stone impeding the flow of a river, a subluxation impedes the flow of our nervous system. By adjusting those subluxations (that is, misaligned bones) in the spine, we are removing the interferences in our nervous system.

How does subluxation affect you? It can cause joint damage, nerve damage, tissue damage, muscle damage and health damage if we do not address it properly and timely.

So how do we know if our nervous system has interference through subluxations? These are the tell-tale signs:

These are some signs that the subluxations have affected your nervous system and caused you to have interferences in the nervous system. If you do not wish to suffer ill health or be prone to diseases due to subluxations of your vertebrae, timely chiropractic adjustments will help restore your body equilibrium and health.

Chiropractors use objective measures and techniques to detect and remove those subluxations so that your body will regain the natural ability to heal and your health. When we remove the interferences to our nervous system, our innate life force is able to communicate with our entire body through our nerves, helping our body to keep functioning at its best.

If you have any of the conditions and effects above, seek help timely and get adjusted, to ensure that your nervous system is in-check and that your body can function more optimally.
