What is Subluxation?

Dr. Gil Center for Back, Neck, and Chronic Pain Relief


A subluxation is a technical term for your vertebrae being out of  alignment, which is a common problem that chiropractors treat. Many events can trigger a subluxation, including a car accident, improper posture or a fall. A subluxation is often the cause of back and other types of pain because the misaligned vertebrae press on your nerves, sending pain messages to the brain.

Subluxation can also cause additional problems like interference to messages being sent to various organs ,tissues and cells,  and even spinal disc degeneration. Your body tends to overcompensate for the problem area, shifting in improper ways that will worsen your condition. The earlier we can deal with the problem, the better the outcome will be,  because we can keep the body in alignment and prevent disc degeneration and other problems.
