In our busy lives of activity, stimulation and stress, it is no wonder we are often plagued by physical pain and discomfort. Subluxations are often the cause of many of the complaints and conditions of the human body!
A subluxation (“sub” meaning less than; “luxation” meaning dislocation) is the result of spinal bones with improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between your brain and your body. It is a stress response – muscles spasms occur, spinal bones lock up, and adjacent nerves are choked or be irritated. This interferes with the way your brain communicates with your body, causing problems with the control and regulation of your body‘s functions.
Your central nervous system controls every aspect of your body, including all cells, tissues and systems. As the impulses travel from your spine, your vertebrae need to be free of subluxations for optimal health.
There are three basic causes of subluxations. Physical causes may include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions, and improper lifting. Emotional causes are often stress, anger, anxiety and fear. And chemical causes are typically found in alcohol, drugs, pollution and poor diet.
Only a chiropractic examination can properly detect the location and severity of any subluxations you may have. And only chiropractic adjustments can naturally reduce their effect to your nervous system. The application of precise and specific force in the right direction, and over time, can change the position and movement of spinal bones. This will therefore release the normal function and communication through the nerves.
Our nervous system is much like a well designed freeway system; it allows traffic to move freely in the appropriate directions. However, like in a traffic jam, our nervous system can be backed up from subluxations. The weight of a small coin is enough to reduce normal nerve impulses by up to 50%.
With the help of your Chiropractor, your body can be cleared of subluxations and brought back into the position to be able to heal itself naturally. Good health and vitality can begin again!
