Chiropractic Q and A


What is a subluxation and why are they so dangerous?


A subluxation is a distortion in your spinal column and body structure that affects your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system. Chiropractors spend years learning how to locate and adjust subluxations using various physical testing devices, body biofeedback, and other instruments as well as X-rays and imaging devices. Why are subluxations so bad?


The subluxation is a “communication disorder” wherein your parts have become disconnected; your parts, muscles, discs, ligaments, and organs aren’t working together as efficiently as they could be working; there may be too much or too little cerebral spinal fluid, lymphatic fluid and/or blood flow to vital body organs. When you are disconnected your resistance to disease lowers, your ability to detoxify from life’s stresses drops and you are less alive. The term used to describe this is dis-ease.

The Goal of the Chiropractor

The goal of the chiropractor is to locate and remove subluxations so you may be better connected to yourself.
