What Is a Subluxation?


Subluxation Treatment

A subluxation is a lack of motion or alignment between two spinal bones that places stress or irritation on the nervous system. This stress or irritation inhibits the body’s ability to function and heal. The nervous system controls and coordinates every function in your body. Your heart beating, your lungs breathing, your muscle movements, your digestion, and even your immune system are all regulated by the nervous system. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that a properly functioning nervous system would lead to better health.

A subluxation stresses the nervous system and keeps it from functioning at its best. It can be painful but does not have to be. Signs of a subluxation can include high blood pressure, headaches, digestive distress, numbness, and generally feeling “under the weather”. Addressing subluxations is one of the fastest and most effective ways to restore overall health.
