What Is a Subluxation and How Does Chiropractic Help?

back adjustmentYou may have heard the term “subluxation,” but if you’re new to chiropractic, you may wonder what exactly that term means. A subluxation just means a slight misalignment or displacement of the vertebrae in the spine. The misalignment can potentially keep the nervous system from functioning as it should. There are many potential causes of misalignments; these include poor posture, physical injuries, or the repetitive strain placed on the spine through daily activities or sports injuries.

When misaligned, vertebrae can exert unnecessary pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can manifest as an array of uncomfortable symptoms, including pain, stiffness, and a noticeable decrease in mobility or flexibility. These symptoms indicate the body’s struggle to maintain its natural alignment and function.

How Do Chiropractors Help?

Chiropractors specialize in identifying and addressing subluxations. Using spinal adjustments, chiropractors apply a controlled amount of force to the misaligned vertebrae, aiming to guide them back to their proper positions. This process not only helps alleviate the immediate symptoms but also works to restore the spine’s natural alignment, thereby improving the nervous system’s functionality.

More Than Symptom Relief

Chiropractic care is recognized for its effectiveness in treating subluxations and is considered a safe approach to enhancing one’s spinal health. The goal of this care extends beyond mere symptom relief; it targets the root cause of the discomfort, striving for a long-term solution that benefits overall health and well-being.
