What is a Subluxation?

When Dr. Dave goes to check someone’s spine, he’s checking to see if a vertebra is stuck, misaligned or just not moving correctly. This is called a subluxation. The physical aspect of a subluxation is the part that both the patient and doctor can feel. But there is always a neurological effect of that as well, because your spine isn’t just a thing that keeps you vertical. There is a mind-numbing amount of information flowing through your spine at any given moment because it harbors your nervous system.

If you have a subluxation, it disrupts that flow of information which stresses the body and nervous system, causing the body to spend too much time in what’s called the fight or flight response. This means that the body is prioritizing the survival responses over everyday health and maintenance. This can set the stage for anxiety, focus issues at work or at school, fatigue, sleep problems, immune issues and more.

Most of you get your teeth checked regularly, but you should get your spine checked as well because the impact it can have on your life, or the life of your child is profound. Reach out for more information!
