Understanding the Meaning of Spine Subluxation


A vertebral subluxation happens when the spine becomes misaligned compared to the bones above or below it. It could lead to neurological conditions resulting from pressure on the adjacent nerves, and with time it can degenerate and affect the bones, discs, and tissues around.

Some types of physical stress, such as improperly moving heavy objects or slipping and falling, are the most common causes of subluxation. Also, physical stressors such as road accidents and continued motions that stress your joints and spinal bones could bring about this condition. Emotional and chemical contributors could also lead to subluxation. These include fear, stress, and anger. Chemical inducers could also make your posture suffer.

What Are the Signs of Subluxation?


You could have a subluxation and not be aware. This is called an asymptomatic subluxation. It could exist in your body and not show any warning signs. At our clinic in Fargo, North Dakota (ND), we do thorough exams and X-rays to locate any subluxation. Other symptoms of subluxation include;

  • Tenderness, neck and back stiffness
  • Reduction in backbone flexibility
  • Spinal muscle spasm
  • Tingling and pain in the extremities
  • Chronic headache
  • Balance problems

The Five Stages of Subluxation


Spinal subluxation progresses in five stages before it reaches the irreversible stage without treatment. These stages are:

  1. Spinal Kinesiopathology – This is when the spinal bones lose their usual position and motion, and you are restricted to ben
  2. Neuropathophysiology – This is when your misaligned vertebrae choke delicate nerve tissues and cause symptoms elsewhere in your body
  3. Myopathology – Your spine supporting muscles become weaker or tighter and go into spasm. Repeated spinal adjustment is needed here
  4. Histopathology – Increased blood and lymph supplies, rise in temperature, swelling, and inflammation due to increased damage to nerves and muscles
  5. Pathophysiology – Abnormal body growths attempting to fuse the failing backbone joints

How to Correct Subluxation Through Chiropractic Care

At Peak Spine and Wellness, chiropractic care corrects subluxation and other misalignments. We restore the misaligned vertebrae to their proper position. We do this manually by using a chiropractic procedure called spinal adjustment. In most cases, our chiropractors use their hands to apply corrective pressure to your backbone in a specific location and direction. The manual thrust or force is handy in restoring spine alignment and mobility.

Our chiropractors also may use an instrument to check the misalignment of the spine and consequently adjust it. Under normal circumstances, correcting a subluxation should be painless; nonetheless, in trauma cases due to auto accidents, it could be painful due to inflammations. You may as well experience a brief sensation in the bone margins after an adjustment because of the sudden decomposition of the nerve root affected.
