What is a Subluxation

When a vertebrae (bone) becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position and becomes fixated or stuck, 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, nutritional or environmental stresses, to a car accident or any sudden trauma. 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 natural pathways of the messages sent from the brain to the organs, muscles and tissues and from theses places back to the brain.   These messages have to be kept clear in order for the body to be healthy or to recover from any illness .

As time goes by and a subluxation remains untreated, the spine and surrounding features 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 machine. 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 and motion.
