What Is Subluxation?
Subluxation is, in essence, when your spine is out of alignment. It is not as simple as a joint malfunctioning and resulting in a vertebra or multiple vertebrae out of place, however. An important component of subluxation is the attendant condition(s) that correlate(s) with the misalignment.
Causes and Symptoms of Subluxation
Because each part of the spine is connected to other neural pathways, organs, and tissues in the body, subluxation can cause a wide range of conditions that are seemingly unrelated to your back. You can be completely pain-free, yet still experience issues with sleep, immune function, organ health and more, and all because of your spine. As such, symptoms range hugely and can be further explained by your chiropractor.
Some of the main causes of subluxation include:
- Negative emotions and stress - If you routinely experience high levels of stress, depression, anxiety, relationship strife or other emotions that impact you negatively, subluxation may occur, resulting in a host of secondary conditions.
- Poor ergonomics - Sitting or standing in a non-ergonomic way may result in misalignments of your spine and thus subluxation.
- Environment and toxins - Pollutants and toxins in your environment can also cause spine dysfunctionality.
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Subluxation?
Chiropractors are trained to seek out subluxations and correct them with gentle adjustments. Our chiropractor first takes a full health history to help determine which factors might be playing in, then examines you to find and correct the source of your health conditions. In addition to adjustments, we may recommend exercises, lifestyle or dietary changes, massage or acupuncture, and more.
