What is a subluxation? A subluxation is a misaligned or fixated spinal bone (vertebrae) which causes compression, tension, irritation or damage to the nervous system. This causes decreased function and dis-ease.
How do you get a subluxation? Subluxations are usually the result of physical, emotional or chemical stresses. Physical stresses might include birth, injuries, accidents, repetitive motions, improper lifting or poor ergonomics. Emotional stress may include depression, grief, anxiety and anger. Examples of chemical stress include preservatives, drugs, alcohol, and food sensitivities.
How do I know if I have a subluxation? It is possible to have subluxations and not know it. Nine times out of 10 they fix themselves, but that one that doesn't can present without obvious symptoms, (i.e. no pain) similar to early stages of tooth decay or even cancer. A thorough evaluation by a chiropractor can reveal the location and severity of the subluxations you may have.
