“A slight misalignment of the vertebrae, regarded in chiropractic theory as the cause of many health problems and symptoms.”
Subluxations are misalignments of two or more vertebral bones resulting in nerve pressure. Nerve pressure causes decreased communication between brain and body allowing for dysfunction in corresponding tissues and organs. If severe, subluxations can cause neck pain, headaches, low back pain. Undetected, subluxations can go unnoticed for years causing deterioration in your spine. Chiropractors remove the subluxations via chiropractic adjustments allowing the brain to properly communicate with the body. Once the subluxations are eliminated, nerve flow is restored and the healing process begins.
