Subluxation Chiropractor: Personal Injury Doctor Group

Subluxation is when a joint shifts out of alignment, which can happen to any joint in the body. Spinal subluxation indicates a misalignment of one or more portions of the spinal vertebrae. It is common in the spine from all the reaching, bending, twisting, and flexing the body goes through. Spinal subluxations, if left untreated, can cause disc degeneration, permanent nerve damage, neurological conditions, and chronic pain symptoms. A subluxation chiropractor will realign and decompress the spine combined with massage therapy to relax the muscles and restore mobility and function.

Some subluxations don’t cause any problems or pain, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t affecting the back and body. A spinal subluxation can cause long-term problems by:

  • Advancing the disc degeneration process.
  • Gradually pushing, pulling, and/or compressing nerves.
  • Causing the body to compensate through unhealthy postures.
  • Delaying nervous system responses and signal transmissions.

Symptoms

While some spinal subluxations may not be symptomatic, the majority of them are and include:

  • Muscle tightness, weakness, or spasms around the back.
  • Back aching and pain.
  • Neck aching and discomfort.
  • Headaches.
  • Limited mobility.
  • Digestive issues.
  • Tingling or pain in the arms or legs.

Causes

Common causes include:

  • Unhealthy postures.
  • Sleeping in awkward positions.
  • Sitting or standing for long periods.
  • Lifting objects improperly.
  • Wearing a heavy bag on one shoulder for an extended
  • Heightened stress levels can cause the back muscles to tighten, which can cause subluxations.
  • Automobile accidents, falls, or other traumas.
  • Playing contact sports.
  • Edema
  • Hyperemia – lack of blood circulation.
  • Atrophy
  • Fibrosis

Effects

Research shows that spinal subluxations can affect many facets of the body. Long-term effects may include:

  • Sleep problems
  • Low energy
  • Brain fog
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Digestive issues
  • Respiratory problems
  • Bone spurs
  • Spinal arthritis

Chiropractic Care

When the spine is out of alignment, it can cause issues throughout the body. Changes in one area affect the rest of the body. A subluxation chiropractor looks at the spine’s neurological and mechanical components and aims to reset everything back into its proper position. Similar to the way a massage helps the mind and body relax and de-stress, a spinal adjustment helps by:

  • Increasing circulation
  • Relieving discomfort and pain
  • Releasing tension
  • Improving mood
  • Reducing stress levels
  • Improving sleep function
  • Increasing energy levels

When the spine is properly aligned, the body can operate at its full potential.
