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.
