Understanding Chiropractic and Spinal Subluxations


If you have experience with Chiropractic healthcare then you have likely heard of “subluxation”. Here is an explanation from Dr. Christian Farthing, a chiropractor trained to detect and correct spinal subluxations. Correcting subluxations leads to improved spinal health and overall wellness. For those who are unfamiliar with subluxations, we have listed simple explanations and how chiropractors treat and correct subluxations.

Spinal subluxations occur when the vertebra loses its normal position. The loss of position of vertebras interfere with the function of joints and tissues. A subluxation occurs when one or more spinal vertebrae move out of position which leads to creating stress on nearby nerves. This prevents the body from performing optimally. The goal of chiropractic adjustments is to correct these subluxations, which eliminates any interference to the nervous system and improve spinal function and overall health.

It is important to understand that subluxations are painless and occur at any time at any age. The only way to determine subluxations in the spine is by evaluation with your doctor of chiropractic. While you can have subluxations without any noticeable symptoms, there are some indicators or symptoms of subluxation, such as neck pain, back pain, headaches, dizziness or balance issues, muscle spasms, tightness or weakness, reduced mobility, joint pain, numbness or tingling in extremities, low energy and more.

Chiropractors have just discovered little from a broad view of what possible effects these subluxations can do to the body. Spinal health is directly related to the health and function of your central nervous system and the removal of subluxations are critical to your overall spinal health. Here are some of the effects of subluxations in the body:
• Create dis-ease in the body, decreasing its ability to adapt to stress.
• Decrease the body’s ability to function at its optimal potential.
• Accelerate joint aging and cause joint degeneration.
• Can cause a chain reaction of other health issues.
• Can cause bio structural and postural problems

Chiropractors are the only healthcare experts that are trained to diagnose and treat spinal subluxations. Chiropractors go through years of training and education to learn how to accurately correct spinal subluxations. Subluxations are treated using chiropractic adjustments. Highly trained and educated chiropractors perform adjustments to your spine via their hands or a small instrument. They use quick and gentle movement. Chiropractors apply different amounts of sudden force to joints in order to remove subluxations, increase the joint’s mobility and improve overall spinal functions.
