WHAT IS A SUBLUXATION?

The word "subluxation" comes from the Latin words meaning "to dislocate" (luxate) and "somewhat or slightly" (sub). A subluxation means a slight dislocation (misalignment) or biomechanical malfunctioning of the vertebrae (bones of the spine). These disturbances may irritate nerve roots and blood vessels which branch off from the spinal cord between each of the vertebrae. This irritation may cause pain and dysfunction in muscle, lymphatic and organ tissue as well as imbalance in the normal body processes.

 

SYMPTOMS FRIEND OR FOE

Imagine you are at a picnic in the hot sun.  Late in the afternoon you and your family all eat a meal which has been sitting in the now lukewarm cooler.  That night you are up all night with stomach and intestinal cramps.  No one else in your family who all ate the same food has any symptoms at all.  Who is sick … you or your family???

If you are like most people you will run to the local pharmacy for some over the counter elixir or your local health food store for some natural potion to make those symptoms stop.  We are trained in our society to mask symptoms as if the symptom were the problem.  And then you call that healthy.  Truth is symptoms are our body’s way of maintaining health.  A healthy body expresses symptoms.  Chiropractic gets to the root cause without masking health.

Enjoy a healthy summer by staying adjusted!
