Vertebral subluxation is an alteration of normal spinal position which by the nature of the anatomy of the spinal column, will negatively impact the delicate nervous system tissues that travel through it.
Stress comes in many forms and we can each relate to how significantly it affects us.
Growing research is not only showing how general stress negatively affects the brain, but also specifically how altered spinal alignment and range of motion negatively affect the brain.
In a 2016 paper found in the journal, Neural Plasticity, it was found using fMRI that adjusting vertebral subluxations altered somatosensory processing, particularly in the prefrontal cortex.
If left unchecked, excessive stress accumulates and causes these distortions of the spine which further impair our nervous system’s function and ability to adapt successfully to the environment, both externally and internally.
It is our ability to adapt which ultimately to life’s many external demands as well as the constant demands within the body that result in our ability to be well.
Chiropractic discovered over 100 years ago that these alterations in normal spinal structure do in fact negatively impact our health and function, that they can be corrected and that maintaining optimal spinal structure throughout a lifetime has positive health benefits.
It’s a simple concept based upon our intricate anatomy.
To determine if vertebral subluxation may be negatively impacting the health and life of you and and your family, it is critical that you have an examination with a chiropractor specifically trained to locate and correct these imbalances as not all chiropractors receive this specific training.
