The backbone (known as the spinal column) must be allowed to remain in normal alignment and motion in order for the nerve system to operate properly. Unfortunately, the spine may lose its proper alignment and motion due to physical, mental & chemical stresses, which impact us daily. This frequently occurring condition is known as Vertebral Subluxation.
Physical stress includes things such as accidents, falls, heavy lifting, and minor things such as slips and jerks, poor posture, repetitive activities at work, prolonged sitting in front of the TV or computer, etc. Mental stress involves feelings of jealousy, guilt and anger as well as busy schedules and pressure at work or home. Chemical stress encompasses air pollution (especially smoking, even second hand), food additives and drugs and medications. Every drug (even if necessary to save life) has dangerous, harmful side effects. Every one of us is subjected to these harmful physical, mental and chemical stresses everyday of our lives, and therefore at risk to develop Vertebral Subluxation.
Vertebral Subluxation interferes with the Innate Intelligence, the very essence of your life and continued existence. Vertebral Subluxation interferes with full expression of your potential as a human being, reducing your performance on every level to less than what it should be! When you think of the many functions most of us must perform every day, you can begin to understand how devastating Vertebral Subluxation is to human potential.
Unfortunately, Vertebral Subluxation is epidemic in our society. Also unfortunate is the fact that very few people understand that normally you don’t ‘feel’ Vertebral Subluxation. You may feel nothing untoward, or only feel the damage it causes after it has been present for a period of time. Thus it is important to get checked for it and get it corrected regularly. The ONLY way you can know whether you have Subluxation is to get your spine checked by a Chiropractor.
