  • What is a Subluxation?

 

A subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.Chiropractors are highly trained health care professionals specialising in analysis and correction of vertebral subluxations.

 

  • What causes subluxations?

 

 

Subluxations (spinal and nervous system dysfunction) can be caused by forces that your body cannot adapt to including:

 

>Physical  such as the birth process, learning to walk, car accidents, poor posture, sports injuries, lifting children, prolonged sitting or standing, repetitive activities etc.
>Chemical factors including excessive alcohol, tobacco, sugar, artificial sweeteners, food colouring, caffeine, MSG,  environmental toxins (eg. mercury and other heavy metals), lack of proper nutrients (such as essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, protein), endocrine changes (for example increased relaxin and estrogen levels in pregnancy).
>Emotional tensions like chronic stress, family conflict, grief, anxiety, depression. These tensions subconsciously influence our posture and neurological tone.
One or a combination of these factors can result in alterations to joint function and neurological integration.
