Subluxation: What it means and How It Can Effect You

Blog, Wellness

Ever heard us use the term “subluxation” and wondered what it means? The term may be unfamiliar, but it has been used in the chiropractic field for over a century.

I will break it down for you. 🧠

What is a Subluxation?

In our world of chiropractic care, a subluxation refers to an interference in the communication between your brain and your body. It’s like a traffic jam on the information highway, where vital signals can’t flow freely. This can leave your brain stuck in ‘fight or flight’ mode, where stress and tension build up over time.

Imagine it as your body’s stress signal being constantly switched on. Chiropractic adjustments will help clear the traffic and restore that vital connection between your brain and body.

It’s like opening up the lanes for smooth communication, bringing balance back into your life.

When interference to nerve transmission is removed, not only may pain and inflammation be relieved in specific areas such as the back, neck, arms, hands, legs and feet, but full expression of the spinal nerves that carry signals to every part of the body may be restored.

Say Hello to a More Relaxed & Resilient You

When stress or tension occur in an area of the spine, interference between the brain and the nervous system occur which is then called a subluxation. A clear and connected nervous system is the ultimate foundation for healing and regulating naturally.

What causes subluxation? The Effects of a Subluxation

 

1.) Emotional Stress

Emotional stress patterns can be caused from past or present stress, anxiety or depression, family or work stress, previous trauma, or negativity.

2.) Physical Stress

Physical stress patterns can be caused by injuries or falls, repetitive movements, poor posture, birth trauma, wearing heels daily, or car accidents.

3.) Chemical Stress

Chemical stressors can be caused from fragrances, artificial coloring, skin care products, candles, cleaning solutions, medications, air pollution, or any other toxic products.

What You Can Do: Chiropractic Adjustments for Subluxation Treatment

If you have stiffness, soreness or pain in your joints, neck or back and want to avoid painful, expensive surgery and drugs; the most recommended solution is to see a chiropractor to determine if a subluxation is the cause. Chiropractic care removes interference along the spine, allowing the nervous system to flow optimally. When the nervous system is clear of any interference, it can better adapt to chemical, physical, and emotional stressors.

For a professional assessment to accurately evaluate the presence and extent of your subluxations, reach out to our skilled chiropractor, Dr. Jenna Carter, at The Chiro Co. in Grapevine, Texas. We will provide all of our patients with thorough exams before recommending treatments. You’ll receive a custom strategy to help manage the pain of subluxation and together we will work out a plan that is best for you.

A clear and connected nervous system is the ultimate foundation for healing and regulating naturally.

I recently did my first Chiro appointment with Dr. Jenna and I loved it!! She was very kind and clear during the whole process as I was a bit nervous because I wasn’t sure what to expect. I automatically felt so much better after my appointment and will definitely be coming back! (:

From the second you walk into the door you’re met with such a calming smell that instantly makes your shoulders relax. I’ve been adjusted quite a few times, but I’ve never felt more at rest and peace while doing so. I will be telling everyone I know to come see Jenna!

Dr Jenna was just what I needed. I came into Texas from Washington state in our RV in a boot, looking for a chiropractor, during Christmas and New Years and left Texas with an aligned body and happy feet. I love that she offered acupuncture, and ear seeds. Also, she is a firm believer in increasing magnesium, so am I. So important for a body to heal, whole. I love her goal to reverse bodily dysfunction and encourage self healing which is God’s design for all of us. May this be your best/blessed year~2024 KimC

Dr. Carter provides great chiropractic care. She takes the time to diagnose and treat your issues, not a rush you in and rush you out type of practice. I highly recommend.

Dr. Jenna is the best! She does a complete check of your structure and adjusts accordingly, rather than just asking you what hurts. Her adjustments are gentle and she is kind!
