Janesville Chiropractor Explains Subluxations and How They Affect Your Daily Life

Chiropractors adjust the spine to correct and prevent subluxations. They find subluxations by performing an in-depth orthopedic and neurological examination along with evaluation of your X-Rays. The term subluxation describes a misalignment of the spine. Subluxations can limit mobility, cause pressure/pinching on nerve roots, create inflammation, and lead to chronic pain. The cause of subluxations can be whiplash, lifting, falls, birth injuries, car accidents, sports injuries, sprains/strains, repetitive micro traumas such as poor posture are just a few examples of causes of subluxations.

A Subluxations effect on the body is biomechanical and neurological dysfunction. The second thing a subluxation does is create a degenerative process. Once degeneration starts the only way to stop the degenerative process is for correction of the subluxation and anything less than complete correction will not stop the degeneration process and it will progress from phase 1 to phase 4.

Subluxations can affect your daily life by causing pain with movement, inability to sit for extended periods of time, headaches, muscle irritation, chronic fatigue along with numerous other symptoms.


The Rock on a Hose

The subluxation is like a rock on a hose. When a rock is on a hose it prevents water from getting through. So, how does that affect the garden? It causes the garden to start drying up and die. When a subluxation puts pressure on a nerve root, it too prevents information from getting through. If the brain cannot get information to the organs and tissues that those nerves supply it will cause them to malfunction and degenerate.
