Only a chiropractor can correct vertebral subluxation
Vertebral subluxation occurs when misaligned vertebrae interfere with normal spinal nerve flow. Caused by physical trauma, both small and large, sufferers experience a variety of symptoms and effects. Those effects include increased risk of illness and disease.
Vertebral subluxation is among the most common reasons why patients visit a chiropractor, who is uniquely qualified to address the condition.
Causes of vertebral subluxation
Vertebral subluxation sets in when the spine experiences an impact. Traumatic events include:
- Car accidents
- Improper lifting
- Continuous repetitive movements
- Sustained postures
- Improper exercise
Additionally, chiropractors have discovered that a poor diet, drug side effects, and emotional stress all might contribute to misalignment of the spine.
As with many health conditions, the sooner vertebral subluxation is detected and treated, the quicker the recovery and smaller the impact on your body and health.
Vertebral subluxation impacts your health
The body can be a self-healing engine when it is functioning properly. However, natural immunity takes a hit when bones of the spine are compressing on spinal nerves. This is because of a disruption in communication between the nerves and the brain.
Keeping your spinal column free from vertebral subluxations helps boost your natural immunity against colds, the flu, and sinus problems. If your body is working properly, your resistance to germs, dust, temperature changes, and other stresses is high. Also, by relieving stress on the nervous system, your body works more efficiently and helps ensure that the skull bones “breathe,” permitting the body fluids to drain without interference.
Detection and correction
If you are experiencing symptoms such as neck pain, back pain, or headaches, make an appointment with Strelcheck Chiropractic Clinic for a spinal examination. If vertebral subluxation is detected, a chiropractor will correct the misalignment using spinal adjustments. In fact, this method of treatment is what makes doctors of chiropractic distinctive compared to other healthcare professionals.
In addition to spinal adjustments, chiropractors often recommend other non-invasive healing methods, such as specific exercise and nutrition regimens, to treat vertebral subluxation.
Ultimately, the goal is to restore the body to its natural state of optimal health.
