Vertebral Misalignment (subluxation) is a set of signs and symptoms of the spinal column. Vertebral subluxation complex is a dysfunctional biomechanical spinal segment which is fixated and actively alters neurological function, which in turn, leads to neuromusculoskeletal and visceral disorders. 


Vertebral subluxation or spinal joint dysfunction interferes with the body's function and its innate intelligence.


Negative impact

When there is a subluxation in your spine, your digestive system will not work at its full potential. Your body cannot produce the exact quantity and quality of chemicals necessary to digest the food that you eat. The food will not be absorbed into your body as it should because the cells involved in absorption are not working as they should because the food is not being broken down properly. Those organs, tissues, and cells involved with changing absorbed foods into flesh and blood will not work properly without a good nerve supply.  When there is a subuxation in your spine, your immune system is not working as it should. The organs and cells involved in keeping your resistant to viruses and bacteria are working at less than their potential. When you are subluxated you cannot think as well, your coordination is lessened, energy levels are decreased. A vertebral subluxation literally affects every part of your body because every part of your body in one way or another is dependent upon a properly functioning nerve system.


Affects the entire body

A vertebral subluxation affects the entire body.  In this day and age when there are so many stresses upon the body, chemical, physical, and mental - we cannot afford to have an improperly functioning nerve system.  We cannot be sure about the quality of the water that we drink or the air that we breathe.  We cannot know for sure that our body is getting all the nutrients that we need from our food sources.  We cannot help being exposed to microorganisms, many of which are more powerful than ever because of their ability to adapt to attempts to destroy them with drugs.  We can do nothing about the genitic weaknesses that we inherited from our parents.  But by keeping our nerve system free of vertebral subluxation, we can be sure that any potential that we have will be expressed as well as possible.
