What is a Spinal Subluxation?

Chiropractors help to detect Spinal Subluxations (these can be areas of spinal malfunction causing nervous system ‘static’ or ‘interference’). Spinal Subluxations (SS) can interfere with the flow of crucial body communication along your nerves and may dramatically affect the function of your body in many different ways.
Our focus is to analyze and locate SS and then help people reduce and eliminate them. This can help to improve the flow of communication throughout your nervous system and often improves the function of your spine. Then, because of the reduced SS your body is better able to coordinate its functions, adapt to stress and heal itself. Many people then find relief from aches, pains and the symptoms of a huge range of conditions, and grow to be more flexible and healthy.

What causes Spinal Subluxations?

Spinal Subluxations (SS) are caused by any stress that overwhelms your body.
There are 3 Main Types of Stress

  • Physical Stress

A fall no matter how long ago (even as a toddler), slips, horse falls, car and bike accidents, difficult and traumatic childbirth or delivery, repetitive movements, poor posture, dental work, surgery, working in awkward positions, long car rides, being a couch potato.

  • Chemical Stress

Junk food, toxins, additives and chemicals in foods and bodycare, toxic sprays, cigarettes, medications, vaccinations, drug use.

  • Mental and Emotional Stress

- Tension, poor relationships, low self esteem, financial and work pressure, arguments, life and career changes, emotional shock when your energy is low, pushing yourself to hard.

Long-standing Spinal Subluxations (SS) cause spinal damage and degeneration to the soft tissues around the SS. Chiropractic can help to reduce and halt spinal degeneration by improving spinal balance and posture and therefore keeping your joints, nerves and discs healthy and strong. Of course, the best approach to spinal degeneration is to prevent it in the first place! That’s why regular spinal checkups for the whole family should be part of everyone’s healthcare regime.
