What Is A Subluxation?

By Dr. Bob Richmond, DC
Newbury Park, CA

Subluxation is a word commonly used in chiropractic offices.  But what does it mean? 

A subluxation is a condition where there is a misalignment or a loss of motion of one or more of the bones in the spine, causing a problem with the nerve(s) in that area.  Subluxations create interference to the nerve signals, causing the body to malfunction.

Subluxations destroy the ability of the brain and body to properly communicate with one another, resulting in a loss of health.  They can have devastating effects on your quality of life.

When the nervous system is malfunctioning because of spinal subluxations, the normal communication pathways are interrupted and the nerve system no longer has the ability to function properly.

Your body performs worse at every level. 

Your immune system weakens, your strength and coordination is negatively affected, your emotional state can be altered, your organs may not function normally, and you could experience a constant state of pain, stiffness, lack of flexibility, stress, fatigue, and many other symptoms.

Subluxations, just like cavities, cancer, and many other diseases can start out PAINLESS.

And if they are left uncorrected, they continue to get worse.

If you have areas in your spine that are subluxated, and they are interfering with the normal function of your nervous system, you cannot have optimal health.

Because your nervous system controls your entire body, if it isnít working correctly, it is impossible for your body to be working correctly.

Thatís why having a healthy spine is so important.

Itís my job to restore health to the areas of your spine that have subluxations..  Itís my job to make sure your nerve system is as healthy as possible.  Itís my job to not only get you out of pain when you hurt, but also keep your body as healthy as possible.
