Subluxation is a disease occurring worldwide in epidemic proportions. There are two kinds of subluxations:

1. Acute subluxation-produces sudden symptoms which are of short duration and are sometimes self-correcting.

2. Chronic subluxation-is of long duration, and, if not corrected can cause severe symptoms and degeneration.

The longer a subluxation is allowed to remain uncorrected, the more extreme the resulting condition can become.

Subluxation is the term used by Doctors of Chiropractic to describe the misalignment and/or fixation of bones, resulting in nerve pressure and irritation. Subluxations of the veterbrae of the spine are by far the most common type. Even the slightest misalignment can produce pressure and irritation upon nerves, affecting improper communication of vital nerve impulses to the organs, cells, and tissues of the body. The greater the misalignment, the greater the possibility of it affecting a nerve, and the more severe the discomfort, pain and disability.

A minor subluxation may occur from the ordinary, everyday stresses and strain of normal living, even from such simple acts as twisting or turning. If left unattended, it may become chronic, resulting in severe or painful conditions. A fall or injury often causes major subluxations. They can be produced by any type of shock that overloads the nervous system’s protective mechanism. Even the unavoidable and ever-present downward pull of gravity on the upright body often overcomes body balance and produces poor posture, and misalignment of the spinal vertebrae may result. Abnormal function of cells, tissues, and organs may be caused by the ensuing nerve irritation produced by this condition of subluxation.

What are the danger signals of subluxation? If you are suffering from headaches, stiffness of the neck, pain between the shoulders, backache, pain in the arms or legs, numbness in hands or feet, or general nervousness, you are suffering from one of the eight danger signals that indicate possible nerve pressure or irritation by a subluxation(s). The Doctor of Chiropractic locates the subluxation(s) through orthopedic, physical, kinesiological, and spinal examinations, as well as Xrays. With spinal adjustments, he or she will skillfully and carefully move the veterbra back into normal position, thereby removing the nerve interference. Body balance can be restored, spinal misalignment can be corrected, and the condition caused by the subluxation can be relieved and eliminated. When the correction is completed and the nervous system is restored to normal function, the body will cure itself.
