Watch this video about the Chiropractic Adjustment!
“Research currently defines a chiropractic subluxation as a self‐perpetuating, central segmental motor control problem that involves a joint, such as a vertebral motion segment, that is not moving appropriately, resulting in ongoing maladaptive neural plastic changes that interfere with the central nervous system’s ability to self‐regulate, self‐organize, adapt, repair and heal.” The Rubicon Group May 2017
In simple terms, a subluxation is when a spinal bone called vertebra or group of spinal bones move inappropriately and cause an interference with the brain and nervous system affecting the body’s ability to function, heal and be healthy.
Subluxation is also seen as the sign that someone is stressed beyond their general adaptive capacity, not to the point of death, but to where they cannot fully function.
The components of Vertebral Subluxation Complex include:
Abnormal motion or position of the spinal bones – Spinal Kinesiopathology.
Abnormal nervous system function – Neuropathophysiology.
Abnormal muscle function – Myopathology.
Abnormal soft tissue function – Histopathology.
Abnormal function of the spine and body – Pathophysiology.
