Many Americans have frequent back pain. In fact, 54% of Americans have had back pain for five or more years. Serious back pain can lower the quality of life for anyone, so many people search for relief. Luckily, chiropractic can often help and leads to many research studies as a clear 1st choice for spinal care success. One of the major causes of back pain is spine subluxation. What is spine subluxation and can a chiropractor help with subluxations?
What is Spine Subluxation?
Subluxation is a term that means misalignment or partial dislocation. Therefore, spine subluxation occurs when your spine is out of alignment. A misaligned spine limits your body’s ability to function properly and can lead to many symptoms. The pain is one of the most frequent symptoms, typically occurring in the neck and back. Spine subluxation also severely limits the range of motion in your back, which can make simple tasks difficult. It can also lead to headaches and even migraines as the pressure builds in your spine. An often-overlooked result of a subluxation is the effect of compressing the nerves to the vital organs of the body which can lead to many disorders that can be difficult to diagnose like constipation, stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, and so on. The longer your spine subluxation continues, the more it will affect your life as the joint itself will wear out faster due to the misalignment.
How Can Chiropractic Help with Spine Subluxation?
There are many options available for back pain treatment. However, the best treatment for spine subluxation is absolutely chiropractic. The most basic chiropractic treatment, the spinal adjustment, is non-intrusive, typically pain-free and drug-free. Chiropractors are all trained to expertly realign the spinal column to not only relieve the symptoms of spine subluxation but also to decompress nerves, improve circulation and promote overall healing. Adjustments to the spine are also quick, as the chiropractor gently applies pressure to the affected area. The many benefits of a spine adjustment make it by far the best way to treat a spine subluxation in anyone.
Spine subluxations occur when your spine is misaligned or partially dislocated. This can cause quite a few symptoms. These symptoms include pain in your neck and back, severe limits to the range of motion, systemic disorders that are often treated as mysterious or insidious, intense and frequent migraines and so on. While there are many solutions to back pain, chiropractic typically is one of the best options for any client. Chiropractic specializes in spine health and uses chiropractic adjustments to maintain the alignment of the spine as a whole. Chiropractors can also help you learn ways to help prevent pain in the future as well as help you improve your overall health.
