Misalignment & Subluxation
Misalignments are caused when muscles are too tight or too weak to support the joints to stay in proper alignment. It may even cause subluxation of vertebrae. This does not necessarily need to be accompanied by pain or discomfort but can lead to it if left untreated for prolonged periods of time.
Subluxation in chiropractic care is when a vertebra in the spinal cord is out of place and causes pressure on nerves, which can result in pain or discomfort.
The spinal bones are stacked on top of each other with shock-absorbing discs between them to create a flexible yet sturdy structure.
These vertebrae are held together by ligaments, which allow the spinal column to twist and turn, yet still provide stability.
A spinal subluxation or chiropractic subluxation is also called a partial dislocation of a bone in a joint which could be in the spine or elsewhere like the shoulder. Joint dysfunction and/or subluxation occurs when the normal movement between two bones exceeds their ability to slide against each other, causing one bone to slip into another.
A spinal subluxation is when one or more of the bones in the spine slips out of place and causes pressure on nerves. The reason this happens can be due to wear and tear, injury, genetic factors, lifestyle choices, trauma (auto accident), etc.
Is It Important To Correct Misalignments?
Yes, correcting a misalignment as soon as possible once diagnosed is vital because the longer you wait, the harder and more time-consuming it will become. When a particular area of your spine has been repeatedly subluxated (misaligned) over an extended period of time, scar tissue may form as protection (a body’s natural defense) against future misalignment.

How Do We Treat Them?
If misalignments are left untreated for lengthy periods of time, they can lead to pain, reduced mobility, and sometimes even immobility. The bones may fuse in their new position and create a condition called ankylosis.
Chiropractors use gentle yet effective techniques for spinal adjustment of these misalignments and allow the body’s natural healing process to return the spine back into proper alignment.
Chiropractic adjustments are done by hand, or with a tool that aids in this correction of misalignment. When your chiropractor adjusts your spine, you will be positioned so that your spine is in proper alignment.
While doing manual adjustment of your spine, many chiropractors “crack” or “break” the subluxation and move it to its proper positions, which will give you complete relief, better blood flow, and release your emotional stress. This is done by hand; no force is necessary to correct misalignments. After the spinal adjustment, spinal joints are able to move more freely, nerve function will be restored, and you will have a healthy nervous system.
