A subluxation is the misalignment of spinal bones (vertebrae) which may cause interference to the spinal nerves. This interference can cause pain, but often it is not painful at all and can go undetected or ignored for many months or years. Because all organs and tissues depend upon the nervous system to function properly, a subluxation left uncorrected may lead to serious health problems.
Thousands of years ago Hippocrates said, "Look well to the spine for the cause of disease." With this statement, chiropractors heartily agree. Prevention is the key to good health, and correcting spinal sub-luxations is the way your chiropractor can help promote optimum health.
