Chiropractic care extends beyond mere symptom relief, offering patients essential preventive, non-invasive health care through regular check-ups and adjustments. Central to this specialized and expert care is a deep understanding of the science of vertebral subluxation.
A vertebral subluxation occurs when one or more vertebrae in the spine become misaligned, leading to the compression of spinal nerves and disrupting optimal nerve function. Chiropractic's primary focus revolves around the identification, analysis, and correction of these misalignments.
The Historical Significance of Vertebral Subluxation in Chiropractic
The term "subluxation" has a rich historical lineage in the realm of healing practices, dating back to the era of Hippocrates, the renowned ancient Greek physician often hailed as the "Father of Medicine." This term denotes a dislocation or displacement and has been a fundamental concept in chiropractic education from its inception. The founder of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer, postulated that even a minor misalignment of a vertebra could exert pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

“Chiropractors have found in every disease that is supposed to be contagious, a cause in the spine,” wrote B.J. Palmer, the famous developer of chiropractic, in 1909. “In the spinal column, we will find a subluxation that corresponds to every type of disease.”
As chiropractic science is concerned with preserving and restoring health, it focuses particular attention on subluxations of the tiny bones of the spine. A vertebral subluxation happens when one or more of bones of the spine are out of position and compress spinal nerves. These nerves are the primary communication link between the body to the brain. Pressure on these nerves interferes with the communication between the body and the brain, which may cause organs, tissues, and cells not to function properly. Chiropractic identifies, analyzes and helps correct these disturbances to restore the body’s natural balance and the potential for self-healing.
How Subluxations Impact Your Well-Being
A subluxation disrupts the smooth operation of the body's nerve system, compromising the ability to maintain optimal health. The human body comprises various interconnected systems, all guided by an inherent intelligence that allows adaptation to changes in our internal environment and the external world. Continuously, impulses convey information between the brain and the body's vast network of 100 trillion cells, orchestrating every movement and function. These impulses traverse the nerve connections within our spine. However, when vertebrae become subluxated due to various factors, interference occurs in the body's communication network, adversely affecting its functions and performance
