What is a Subluxation?


A subluxation (Vertebral Subluxation) is when one or more of your vertebrae (the bones of your spine) move out of position and irritate or create pressure on spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between your vertebrae. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves.








How does this affect you?  Your nervous system coordinates and controls all the functions of your body. If you interfere with the signals traveling over nerves, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function at 100% of their abilities. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly.

It is the responsibility of the Chiropractor to locate subluxations and reduce or correct them. This is done through a series of chiropractic adjustments, specifically designed to correct the subluxations in your spine. Chiropractors are the only professionals who undergo years of education & training to correct subluxations.
