Subluxation (sub'-luck-say'-shun): A misalignment of a spinal bone (called a vertebra) which causes compression, tension, irritation, and damage to the Central Nervous System (CNS). The CNS consists of the Brain, Spinal Cord, and Spinal Nerves that control and coordinate every function of the body.
Subluxations are caused by a lifetime of stress and trauma. Slips, falls, auto accidents, sports injuries, poor posture, bad sleeping habits, work stress, or even childhood mishaps including the birth process can cause the spinal column to move out of its normal position. These stressors are known as the 3 T's: Toxins, Traumas, and Thoughts or Chemical Stress, Physical Stress, and Emotional Stress.
Subluxations result in poor communication between the brain and the body which leads to poor healing and malfunction of organs, tissues, and muscles. Poor healing and malfunction of the body results in a weakened immune system and lowered resistance to infection, illness, and disease.
