Firstly, let’s look at the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. The nervous system connects the brain to the body and the body to the brain which allows your body to maintain a healthy state. The health of this system is vital to optimum body function and wellness.
Subluxation – What is it?
The two-way communication between the body and brain is interrupted when subluxation occurs, i.e. one of the vertebrae in your spine moves out of alignment, and/or movement patterns of the vertebrae are abnormal creating pressure and stress on the spinal nerves, blood vessels, and surrounding muscles. This can cause an imbalance in the body’s normal processes because the nerves in the spinal column extend to the entire body and its organs. If the subluxation is not corrected, over time the nerve damage gets progressively worse and different stages of subluxation degeneration set in.
