What Is A Subluxation?

A Subluxation is a chiropractic term that refers to a misalignment of the vertebrae, generally of a minor nature.In essence, a vertebra that is not properly aligned with the other vertebrae creates pressure on or stretches the nerves in the spinal cord and the nerves around the spine. This increases the likelihood that nerve signals will not be transmitted properly and can cause pain. Subluxations, cervical or otherwise, can have a number of causes, including trauma from an automobile accident, falling, poor lifting techniques and bad posture.

Getting adjusted changed my life for the better in so many ways!

I've always been into being healthy and active, but true health eluded m until I discovered Chiropractic. I suffered from the "Normal Stuff": daily headaches, heartburn and IBS.

Then I developed severe nerve pain from a bulging disc in my neck and found a chiropractor to help me. My nerve pain was gone. Soon I realized that so were my headaches, heartburn and IBS.I realized this was my calling and went to Palmer Chiropractic School in FL to start my new life. I have advanced certifications in spinal correction and nutrition. I have a passion for health and wellness, nutrition, supplements, and exercise. My mission is to make every family as healthy as possible without the need of drugs or surgery.
