Subluxation Treatment in Houston
In a healthy pain-free spine, the 24 vertebrae, coccyx bone and sacrum stack on top of one another in a properly centered alignment. However, different life experiences can cause forceful movements which can take one or more vertebrae out of the alignment.
Subluxation is the misalignment of vertebrae in relation to the others. It also refers to the partial dislocation of the vertebrae.
The loss of normal position interferes with the normal function of the surrounding joints and tissues, too.
When your spinal vertebrae are out of position, it causes stress and irritation on the nearby nerves. It prevents your body to function correctly and causes pain. It also affects your overall health and well-being. Subluxation is common among adults over the age of 40.
