A Vertebral Subluxation is the name given to the problem areas in your spine. A Vertebral Subluxation has four specific characteristics.

1. A loss of relationship between the bones of the spine.
2. A change in the shape of the holes through which the nerves pass.
3. Impingement upon the environment of the nerve tissue.
4. Interference with the function of the nerve system
(i.e, transmission of vital information throughout the body).

Your nerve system is responsible for coordinating and controlling the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system within your body. Vertebral Subluxations interfere with the flow of this information along these nerve pathways and are a serious interference to your body’s potential health and performance.

1. They cause pressure on the spinal cord and nerves passing through the spine.
2. They cause stress on the joints and discs between the vertebrae.
3. They cause strain on the muscles and ligaments that support the spine.

If you have a Vertebral Subluxation, it is impossible for your body to perform to the best of its ability; meaning that it will be less able to deal with stress, resist illness and disease, or perform optimally.
