Q

What is a Vertebral Subluxation?

A

An examination may reveal misaligned spinal bones that are putting pressure on your nerve system and thus decreasing the communication to the rest of your body, this is called a Vertebral Subluxation.

Q

How are Vertebral Subluxations corrected?

A

Once subluxations are detected the Doctor of Chiropractor utilizes specific approaches including Chiropractic adjustments or manipulations, along with soft tissue work, rehabilitation therapies and other physiotherapies.

The adjustment is the primary course of treatment. An adjustment reduces the subluxation by applying a gentle and specific force into a joint and surrounding soft tissue. By doing this, it removes the neurological distress allowing the body to return to a higher state of functioning, improving the range of motion and restore proper positioning. The adjustment reduces pain, decreases muscle spasm, joint inflammation and restores proper coordination.
