What is Subluxation of the Spine?

Your spinal column relies on bones to give it support, both these bones must have mobility relative to one another in order for your spine to have full range of motion. These vertebrae are attached via connective tissues at what is known as synovial joints. This allows the bones to meet, then move apart, without actually detaching from one another, so that your spine can move freely. A subluxation is when the connective tissue between two vertebrae is partially disconnected (as opposed to full, which is a dislocation).

What Are the Symptoms of a Subluxation?

The main symptoms of a spinal subluxation are a pain, tingling, numbness, stiffness or radiating symptoms in the extremities. In some cases, subluxations may also affect balance, causing you to get dizzy, and can cause significant immobility. Moreover, a host of seemingly unrelated medical conditions have been shown to result from spinal subluxation. In one real patient case, Dr. Mechelle Hanna helped a young woman forgo the need of a heart transplant operation through proper adjustment to her spine. Isn’t that amazing? Full disclaimer: not every health related concern stems from a chiropractic root cause. However, more conditions can be addressed (and corrected) than you might imagine through proper care. Our commitment to you is to help you understand what subluxation treatment in Matthews both can (and cannot) do for you. From here, you can make fully informed decisions about you and your family’s health. Ready to learn how we can help you? Call us today!

Is Scoliosis a Subluxation?

Scoliosis is an unnatural curvature of the spine. While it is not in itself a subluxation, it often results from untreated subluxations in the spine. When these heal improperly, the spine cannot straighten itself the way it needs to, and proper curvature is often the results.

What Is Subluxation Degeneration?

Subluxation degeneration is an improperly healed subluxation. When the bone does not heal correctly or two bones are near to one another, the body may deposit calcium on them, further reducing mobility and even fusing two bones together. This makes it critical to address subluxations immediately with the help of a qualified chiropractor, who can provide the necessary treatments and adjustments to prevent worsening of and even reverse the condition.
