Subluxation (sub-luck-say-shun): A misaligned spinal bone vertebrae which causes compression, tnesion, irritation and damage to the Central Nervous System (CNS). The Central nervous systemt is made up of the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves.
Instead of only treating your symptoms, your chiropractor is primarily interested in
detecting, reducing and correcting Subluxations.
Subluxation causes the organs and muscles of the body to malfunction and heal poorly due to the interference
they create in the Central Nervous System. The CNS completely controls all functions and healing in the body.
The most common way to interfere with the CNS is a Subluxation.
Malfunction in the body and poor healing results in lowered resistance to infection, allergies, illness and
Subluxations are caused by a lifetime of stress and trauma. Slips, falls, auto accidents, sports injuries,
poor posture, bad sleeping haibits, work stress or even childhood mishaps along with the birth process itself
can cause the spinal column to move out of its normal position. These stressors are known as the 3 T's:
Thoughts, Traumas and Toxins.
