Subluxation

Spinal subluxationSubluxation describes what happens when spinal joints are shifted out of ideal alignment due to stress, trauma, or chemical imbalances.

Because the nervous system (spine/nerves/brain) is “command central” of the body, eliminating subluxations helps the body do its thing better: adjustments reduce pressure on the nerves, easing the flow of communication and signals between them. Also, adjustments trigger the release of endorphins, which cause a near instant relief of pain.The hip is quite durable, but with age and use, this cartilage can wear down or sustain damage. So can the muscles, tendons, and bones in and surrounding the hip, caused by a number of conditions, including arthritis, Avascular necrosis (or osteonecrosis), certain cancers, Bursitis, Hip fractures, Hip labral tear, Muscle or tendon strain, and Tendinitis.

If these adjustments tend to be only temporary, this may be an indication of problems beyond the spine. Frequently, pain or other symptoms in the body start with the body’s foundation: the feet.

As one study1 noted, “there are small, but important, inter-segmental movements of the spine during gait” (walking). And if you have foot problems (which are often “silent“), spinal subluxations, pain and degeneration throughout the body can occur. In fact, researchers have found that poor foot mechanics “can adversely influence the normal functions of the ankle, knee, hip, and even the back.”

Symptoms of Vertebral Subluxation

  • Neck and back pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness or balance problems
  • Spinal muscle spasms, tightness or weakness
  • Reduction in spinal mobility
  • Pain, numbness or tingling in the extremities
  • Joint pain, tenderness or stiffness

Treatment

If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, subluxation of your spine could be the cause. Chiropractic care along with Foot Levelers custom orthotics is the best way to correct subluxation. Chiropractors are experienced in finding and correcting these problem spots. Foot Levelers custom orthotics can then help keep your spine in alignment.
