What is subluxation?
Vertebral subluxations are a spinal malfunction that occurs in the normal course of daily living. As the spinal segments shift out of their normal alignment, the hard bones injure the very nerves they were designed to protect, exerting pressure that slowly interferes with your nerves’ normal energy flow. While subluxations can result in pain, quite often they do not, and, if left uncorrected over a period of time, they can disrupt your nerves system’s normal function of relaying vital nerve impulses to essential body parts.
What causes subluxations?
A fall, injury, trauma, improper sleeping habits, poor posture, obesity, stress and more.
