How do you find out if you have a subluxation

November 22, 2009
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. We have a significant health problem in this country. A different way of thinking about health is the key to unlocking this problem. The current healthcare model is failing and relying on it can be dangerous to your health. Your body is programmed for health and balance and has the intelligence to return to health and full function if given the opportunity with keeping your spine and nervous system unblocked and free of interference such as a subluxation in your spine. Your spine is the life-line of your body. Every family should have a chiropractor as part of your lifetime wellness team.


This healthcare system really is about disease and when you apply such a system to a population you get a sick population.

Current health statistics and trends:

16,000 death per year from taking NSAIDS ie: Advils, 900,000 people died of heart disease a year, 82% coronary disease cases in 84,000 female nurses found to be lifestyle related. Obesity is up over 60% in the past 10 years, Type 2 diabetes up over 90% in the past 10 years.

Solution to these problems is not more than different strategies and behaviors. Chiropractic represents an entirely different health model. Our focus is on health promotion rather than treatment of disease. We recognize health comes from inside out. We believe there as an intelligence in the body that guided its formation from two cells and has the ability if uninterrupted can heal the body.

Life energy is flowing through your nerves, like the electricity flowing through your household appliances. If you have a cut in the line you have no or less function to that appliance or body part. Which could be a pinched nerve causing numbness, pain or tingling into your legs or arms. Headaches, neck pain, low back pain and more can be caused by a subluxation, or simply put a pinched nerve from a bone out of place or a muscle putting pressure on your nervous system.

How do you find out if you have a subluxation or a bone out of place? The same way you find out if you have a cavity in your mouth, you get checked out. Many conditions will not cause symptoms until it's too late.

Subluxation is just a condition, so by getting adjusted by your chiropractor will not only remove your pain but will help keep you healthy. The role of chiropractic in lifetime family wellness is to keep your goal of staying healthy throughout your lives.
