The chiropractic adjustment is characterized by a specific thrust applied to the vertebra in order to restore mobility and eliminate nerve interference the goal of chiropractic is to stop the degenerative process of the spine caused by vertebral subluxations.
In a first step, the subluxation cause a spinal loss of motion before generating significant disorders on spinal discs and joints.
In other words, vertebral subluxations are responsible for premature aging of your spine. The vertebral subluxation : is the term applied to a vertebra which has lost its normal position and/or motion in relation to neighboring vertebrae.
Vertebrae which do not function properly within the spinal framework generate mechanical stress. Because of the direct mechanical and physiological relationship between the spinal column and the spinal nerve roots, the vertebral subluxations as well as other spinal abnormalities have the potential to impair proper nerve functioning. Once nerve functioning is compromised, communication within the body becomes less effective jeopardizing the overall health and wellness of the individual.
