what-is-subluxation
“Why does my back hurt?”
“Why do I get so many headaches?”
“Why does my neck ‘click’ when I turn it?”
“Why do my hands/arms/legs/feet get shooting pains in them?”
These are just a few of the many questions that chiropractors hear on a daily basis. The simple answer is: Subluxations.
A vertebral subluxation is the misalignment of one or more vertebrae, which causes interference in the nervous system. When a misaligned vertebrae interrupts communication in the nerves, pain can occur. Depending on the severity of the subluxation and any underlying tension in the muscles, the pain can be sharp, shooting, burning, tingling, throbbing, dull, or pulsing. This manifestation of pain from a vertebral subluxation may come and go, or be constant.
If you think of your nerves as an electrical circuit to a light bulb, the impact of a subluxation becomes clear. When the flow is interrupted from the power source to the light bulb, the light bulb will not work. If there is a bend in the electrical wire, the light bulb will short- possibly flickering off and on. When there is NO interruption to the light bulb, the light bulb will shine brightly and work as it was meant to.

Subluxations, cause pressure on the nerves, which will make flow of energy to the end point of the nerve flicker. This causes pain, disease, and chronic symptoms of illness.
Because subluxations cause interference in the nervous system, the disruption of nerve flow to organs can cause them to function less properly. Poor digestion can be a very common sign of a possible subluxation. Muscle weakness, asthma, allergies, heart conditions, and other non-congenital adverse health diagnosis can be influenced by subluxations. Proper nerve flow is essential to combating any health conditions, and therefore subluxations must be addressed to make sure the nervous system is operating free of interruption.
Regular chiropractic care is key to making sure that subluxations are adjusted to realign the spine and ensure proper nerve flow.
True health cannot be achieved if subluxations are not addressed. Regular chiropractic care is essential to keeping your internal light bulb shining brightly for energy and wellness!
