A subluxation can be caused by quite a few mechanisms. We classify them all into three basic categories. Thoughts, Traumas and Toxins.
Thoughts: A fun way to say stress. The old saying of a day of worry is more tiring than a week of work is very true. That stress and strain often manifest in tight muscles that cause subluxations (misalignment) of the spine. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate those tight muscles with both adjustments and instrument techniques that break up muscles spasms.
Traumas: This is the first thing people think of in regards to an injury. However, overuse injuries like repetitive motions or poor posture can be traumatic too. Prolonged sitting at a computer causes a tremendous amount of pressure on your lumbar spine discs. That pressure causes subluxations.
Toxins: This can be toxins from junk food or drugs. Your mom was right (wasn’t she always), you are what you eat. There is a viscerosomatic referral system in your body. Meaning your guts talk to your muscles through nerves.
Chiropractic adjustments are safe, gentle and effective. We are accepting new patients and would love to show you how chiropractic can benefit you.
