About Chiropractic Care

What are subluxations?         sub = less than | luxation = dislocation
A subluxation is the result of vertebral joint segments with abnormal position or motion affecting nerve communications between your brain and the area where the subluxation is present.

A subluxation can be from a stress response, due to an injury, or even a postural habit. This subluxation causes muscles to go into spasm,  spinal vertebrae to lock up,  and adjacent spinal nerves to be compressed.  This interferes with the control and regulation of your body at the level of this subluxation.  Over time, this compressed nerve cannot complete its communications between the brain and parts of your body.  This lack of communication between your brain and your body can seriously impair your health!

Altered nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems beyond back pain and headaches.  Interference with nerve impulses going to or from your intestines can produce intestinal problems.

Your nervous system controls every cell, organ, system and tissue of your body.  These nerve impulses travel through your spinal cord and then to spinal nerves.  Having a spine free of vertebral subluxation is essential for optimal health.

Many people ask how can I know if I have a subluxation?  Take a few moments and look in the mirror.  Are shoulders even?  Does your head lean to one side?  Can you turn your head the same amount in each direction?  Are your hips even?  Do you feel that you walk harder on one leg as compared to the other?  When you reach for your toes, does one side seam longer/shorter than the other?  If the answer is yes, you are a candidate for a subluxation.

Only a Chiropractic examination can detect subluxations.  Only Chiropractic adjustments can reduce their effect to your nervous system, naturally.

Find out if you have subluxations before they become more serious and more difficult to correct.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of care.
