What is a "subluxation" and what does it do to our health?

The simple version:

A vertebral subluxation takes place when one or multiple bones of your spine or vertebra, move out of their position creating pressure and irritation on spinal nerves. Spinal nerves travel out between each vertebra in your entire spine.

These nerves transmit various messages from your brain via your spinal cord to corresponding areas in your body. Pressure and irritation of the spinal nerves interferes with these signals creating abnormal functioning in the message delivery system.

This message delivery system is also known as the nervous system. It is the nervous system that controls and coordinates all the functions of the body. If there is interference in this network of signals which travels through the spinal nerves, parts of your body fail to receive the proper nerve signals to run your body. A body not functioning at 100% of its inner ability becomes a body that is not working properly.

Chiropractic adjustments specifically deal with the correction of the vertebral subluxation within the spine. The profession of chiropractic is the only profession trained to specifically correct subluxations and educate the public as to their serious effects.
