What Is A Subluxation?
The individual vertebral joints in your spine can misalign and irritate the nerves. When this occurs Chiropractors refer to this as a Subluxation.
To perform at your peak, your brain must both send and receive signals to and from your body via these exiting spinal nerves. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissue and organs throughout the body. Often this can cause a host of symptoms.
For Example: If a person is subluxated in the upper back region, an individual may experience the condition known as asthma - because the nerves in this region go to the small air tubes in our lungs called bronchioles. If a person is subluxated in the lower back region, an individual may experience the condition known as constipation – because the nerves in this region supply the bowel.
Your chiropractor is a specialist in finding and correcting subluxations to restore optimal nervous system function that liberates the innate healing abilities of the body, and allows a fuller expression of personal potential and health.
