Your spinal column, made up of 24 independent vertebrae, is what allows your body to move, twist, and bend through every motion of your busy day. It also encases and helps protect the delicate nerve tissue that carries every communication between your brain and body. This is why we believe the first step to a healthy and active lifestyle is a healthy spine, free of subluxations.
What is Subluxation?
· a slight misalignment of the vertebrae, regarded in chiropractic theory as the cause of many health problems.
When two or more vertebrae aren't working together properly, it is known as a subluxation. Subluxations can cause you to experience pain, discomfort, decreased mobility, or many other symptoms. These misalignments often go unnoticed even while causing major miscommunication between your brain and body.
Spinal subluxations irritate nerves, causing disruption of nerve signals between the brain and body. There are 31 pair of spinal nerves from head to low back, so there are many different places that interference can occur.If a subluxation prevents the nervous system from functioning properly, it will eventually lead to symptoms such as pain, inflammation, stiffness or redness. These symptoms are your body’s only way of letting you know something is wrong! Unfortunately, by the time pain and symptoms appear, the problem may have been present for months, even years.
The great news is that you can help prevent these types of symptoms with routine chiropractic care.
Your body, in most cases, can heal itself if given the proper care, the adjustment. Once the adjustment is given, the pressure is taken off the nerve, allowing proper communication of nerve signals. Thus, TRUE HEALING BEGINS!!!
Chiropractic care is beneficial for MANY different conditions. As chiropractors, we do NOT TREAT conditions/diseases, we ADJUST verterbral bone/joint misalignments, also known as SPINAL SUBLUXATIONS. With that said, Chiropractic adjustments can help people with all sorts of diseases or symptoms. Although we don't treat the actual disease, miraculous results can come from simply removing this nerve interference, allowing the body heal itself. For example, pain medication can alleviate PAIN, but it doesn't fix the CAUSE! The CAUSE comes from distorted signals arising from irritated nerves. The CAUSE is the SUBLUXATION. Pain medication does not correct the SUBLUXATION; it simply masks the symptom of pain.
