|Many recently published studies focused on the role of vertebral subluxations in wellness. Vertebral subluxations are areas in the spine where motion is restricted or bones (vertebrae) are out of alignment. Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life corrects vertebral subluxations using gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments. In addition, chiropractors teach patients how to prevent the physical, chemical and emotional causes of vertebral subluxations. This focus on prevention makes chiropractic unique.
While vertebral subluxations are related to disorders involving joints, muscles and bones (such as back pain, neck pain, headache and shoulder pain), they may also trigger a vast array of other disorders involving organs and the nerve system. Why? Researchers theorize that vertebral subluxations interfere with the nerve transmissions exiting and entering the spinal cord.
Because these nerves supply all the organs and structures of the body, these interferences may spark a plethora of disorders. Fortunately, research shows that chiropractic care may help correct them. Here is a sampling of recent research.
