a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position,
this is referred to in the Chiropractic profession as a
Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a
minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. When a
vertebrae shifts out of alignment, it may put damaging pressure on to
the spinal nerves causing an interruption to the vital nerve flow within
your body. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation
interrupts the natural pathways that the messages sent from the brain
need to be clear in order to be completed properly.
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 restore full function. Ultimately, surrounding areas of the spinal column will work harder in order to compensate for the area that is out of balance. This interferes with your body's innate healing ability and lowers your resistance thus an increase of health challenges.
Our purpose is to correct subluxations to greatly improve the body's ability to regain optimal health. It's common to see whole families choosing Chiropractic because no one is ever too young or too old to obtain a healthy nervous system for life.
