Subluxação

  • O que é uma Subluxação?

    A subluxation technically, is a misalignment of any joint in the body which leads to abnormal function. A joint is where two bones come together and when healthy, move smoothly and correctly. It is commonly used to describe such misalignments of the vertebral bones and joints in the spinal column relative to the vertebra bone above and the one below. This phenomenon is most commonly referred to as a Spinal Subluxation or the Subluxation Complex. It is complex because these misalignments involve the soft tissues, including; nerves, muscles, ligaments tendons, blood vessels and lymphatic vessels surrounding the spinal vertebrae. Some or all the tissues may or may not be involved causing swelling and irritation of the region.

  • Sintomas de uma Subluxação

    Pain is one of the symptoms of a spinal subluxation but is often the very last indicator of a spinal subluxation. Subtle misalignments or subluxations can lead to nerve interference by causing abnormal stretching forces or compression of the nerves. The symptoms may start out as, numbness, tingling, weakness, respiratory problems, heart problems, organ dysfunction, headaches, dizziness and many more. Pain generally occurs when the subluxation has existed for several weeks, months and even years.

  • Causas de Subluxações

    We like to say the “3 T’s”; Trauma, Toxins and Thoughts or put another way, Physical, Chemical and Emotional. Physical trauma such as poor posture, an accident, fall or injury and even the birth process can cause the first subluxation to the spine. Toxins can include; pollution, drugs, medications, alcohol, smoking, dust, chemical exposure and more. Thoughts and Emotional stress can lead to chronic muscle tension which can create these subluxations by pulling on the vertebrae in an unhealthy manner.
  • Como nós tratamos de uma Subluxação

    We use our manual diagnostic skills, computer assisted diagnostic equipment, X rays and physical evaluation to determine the location of a subluxation. We treat the subluxation by correcting the alignment and restoring the function of the vertebral segments using a variety of treatment skills and protocols.
