The Vertebral Subluxation Complex is the underlying cause of many health problems. Like dominos that fall in a chain reaction, problems that are left uncorrected can cause other parts of your body to not work as intended.

When there is no interference, your nervous system controls the healthy function of virtually every cell, tissue, organ and system of you body.

A subluxation, or the Vertebral Subluxation Complex, is a serious condition identified by its five parts:

Abnormal motion or position of spinal bones:

(Spinal Kinesiopathology) The bones of the spine have lost their normal motion and position. This can restrict your ability to turn and bend. It sets in  motion the other four components.

Abnormal nervous system function:

(Neuropathophysiology) Improper spinal function can choke, stretch, or irritate delicate nerve tissue. The resulting nervous system dysfunction can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body.

Abnormal muscle function:

(Myopathology) Muscles supporting the spine can weaken, atrophy, or become tight and go into spasm. The resulting scar tissue can change muscle tone, requiring repeated spinal adjustments.

Abnormal soft tissue function:

(Histopathology) A rise in temperature from an increase in blood or lymph supply can result in swelling and inflammation. Discs can bulge, herniate, tear or degenerate. Other soft tissues may suffer permanent damage.

Abnormal function of the spine and body:

(Pathophysiology) bone spurs and other abnormal bony growths attempt to fuse malfunctioning spinal joints. This spinal decay, scar tissue, and long-term nerve dysfunction can cause other systems of the body to fail.

What is the cause?

A subluxation , or more precisely, the Vertebral Subluxation Complex, describes what happens when spinal bones lose their normal motion or position from stress, trauma or chemical imbalances.

Automobile collisions, improper lifting, drugs, alcohol, emotional stress, chemical imbalances, and long periods of sitting. Subluxations are found at all ages, however early stages of subluxations can be found even in very young children.
