What is Subluxation?

From the Book Indifference

The Subluxation Cycle

The CAUSES of dis-ease are the 3 Ts: Trauma, Toxins and/or Negative Thoughts.  If we over-stress the central nervous system with the 3 Ts: TRAUMA, TOXINS or Negative THOUGHTS, it will cause a shift in balance toward a state of SYMPATHETIC DOMINANCE, known as the Fight or Flight response.

The Subluxation Cycle

When the Central Nervous System is stuck in Fight/Flight and in a state of survival, it will lead to TENSION and protection within the body.

More STRESS than we can adapt to CAUSES TENSION: TENSION leads to MISALIGNMENT and FIXATIONS within the spine. The MISALIGNMENT and FIXATIONS cause interference and dysfunction within the nervous system known as SUBLUXATION.

Quite simply, chronic TENSION and PROTECTION disrupts the proper alignment and motion of the spine, which CAUSES the CONDITION called SUBLUXATION and SUBLUXATION (nerve interference) causes DIS-EASE.

If you or your child are SUBLUXATED, your Health and Wellbeing are LIMITED.  

Who doesn’t want to be at there best?

Who doesn’t want to meet their FULL POTENTIAL?

Who wants to be LIMITED?

The good news is that chiropractors find and remove SUBLUXATION through a safe and specific adjustment which releases the TENSION and restores the ease and balance to the CNS allowing the body to heal, regulate and function the way it was meant to.  Chiropractors can help you achieve LIMITLESS Health Potential.  By removing the Subluxation, you have the ability to be Happy, Healthy and to meet your FULL POTENTIAL.

Subluxation is easily understood when you break the word up and define the components.  Sub- is less than, -lux- is light and -tion is a condition. So, when you put those altogether, a Subluxation is a condition of less light. When you think about your nervous system as energy or your internal fuse box which gives you light, you can start to understand why a condition called Subluxation would be so detrimental to the overall function of the body.

I also think of it like this:

Dehydration is a lack of water.   Suffocation is a lack of air.   Subluxation is a lack of light or nerve flow.  

If you ever have felt fatigued or like you’re walking around in a fog, sometimes it seems as if everything is dull or gray, your motivation and energy is low, that is a great example of a Subluxation and how it affects your overall demeanor.

An adjustment removes SUBLUXATION. An adjustment reduces tension, activates the rest/relax parasympathetic response, dissipates stress and allows the body to be in a state of EASE, which facilitates healing, happiness, development and growth.

A specific chiropractic adjustment reverses the dis-eased state and can prevent the body from expressing symptoms such as:

• Allergies
• Anxiety
• Asperger’s Syndrome
• Asthma
• Autism
• Bed Wetting
• Behavioral Issues
• Breech Presentation
• Chronic digestive issues
• Chronic ear infections
• Colic
• Constipation
• Depression
• Dyspraxia
• Eczema
• Headaches / Migraines
• Plagiocephaly
• Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction
• Reflux
• Seizures
• Sciatica
• Sensory Integration / Processing Disorder
• Scoliosis
• Torticollis
• And More!
