So what is a chiropractic adjustment, anyway?
If you’re considering scheduling a chiropractic appointment for the first time, you may be wondering exactly what happens and why. Simply put, a spinal adjustment is a procedure your chiropractor uses to correct or relieve your vertebral subluxation complex.
Subluxation: is when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves.
Causes of Subluxations:
- macro-stress (auto accidents, falls, sports injuries and other trauma)
- micro-stress (repeated movement that gradually wear down your body parts, bad posture, dental work and emotional stress which can cause chronic tension)
It’s interesting to note that subluxations are common enough that nearly everyone has them and can seriously affect your overall health and well-being.
