Subluxations are misaligned spinal bones (vertebrae) or cranial bones, which cause compression, irritation, and damage to the nerve system. This improper nerve “patterning” of the nervous system leads to the establishment of a “blueprint” for stress, discomfort, pain and dis-ease in the body. Organs, tissues and muscles can all be affected by this improper patterning process and if left uncorrected, will result in lowered resistance to infection, allergy, illness, and disease in the body.
Subluxations are caused by emotional stress, physical stress, injury trauma, toxic trauma, and can even occur during the birthing process. Pain is not always a symptom of subluxations though; rather the body’s nerve pathways may be compromised, which creates abnormal communication within the body.
Unfortunately, physical therapy, massage, and medication do not change improper patterning or blueprinting of the nervous system…they have no affect on subluxations. But, by removing the pressure on the nerves with a Chiropractic adjustment, proper nerve communication is restored and the body’s ability to heal is reinstated for improved comfort and better health.
