When the bones of the neck and spine are misaligned, you can develop a condition called “subluxation”. This condition can be caused by a variety of stressors including trauma (such as auto accidents or falls), over-exertion (such as lifting accidents), repetitive stress (such as frequent computer and tech use) or hereditary issues. When subluxation occurs, it puts an unnatural pressure on spinal nerves and can lead to various types and intensities of pain. It also leads to abnormal wear and tear on the joints and discs of the spine, ultimately leading to tissue break down or degeneration.
The negative effects of spinal degeneration intensify the longer the subluxated condition remains untreated. If the degeneration is more extensive, it directly affects the length and type of treatment needed.
Chiropractic techniques, including manual adjustments known as spinal manipulations, can significantly mitigate and often eliminate subluxation. The chiropractic adjustment is designed to re-align the vertebrae in order to decrease pain and restore normal movement and function to the spine. In addition to adjustments, other strategies that may be used to treat subluxation include:
- Soft tissue therapy
- Stretching exercises
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation techniques
