Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) are the only health care professionals who are thoroughly trained in the detection, location and correction of vertebral subluxations. It requires years of training and clinical practice for a chiropractor to master the analysis and procedures needed to understand and correct subluxations.
The information presented here is only a small preview into the scientific and clinical understanding of subluxations. We present this preview to offer just an initial orientation into the complexity effects of subluxations. If you have additional questions, please ask us.
What is a Subluxation and what does it do to me?
In simplest terms, a subluxation (a.k.a. Vertebral Subluxation) is when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals travelling over those nerves.
How does this affect you?
Your nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of your body. If you interfere with the signals travelling over nerves, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function at 100% of their innate abilities. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly.
It is the responsibility of the Chiropractor to locate subluxations, and reduce or correct them. This is done through a series of chiropractic adjustments specifically designed to correct the vertebral subluxations in your spine. Chiropractors are the ONLY health professionals who undergo years of training to be the experts in the detection and correction of subluxations.
Chiropractors have known about the dangers of subluxations for over one hundred years. Today, more scientific evidence is showing the dangers of subluxations and the health benefits of correcting them. To be truly healthy, it is vital that your nervous system be functioning free of interference from subluxations. Our goal here at Blaser Chiropractic is to allow your body to return itself to the highest level of health possible by correcting subluxations.
