Nerve tissue is so important, it is protected by bone. The brain is encased by the skull, and the spinal cord is covered by 24-moving bones of the spinal column.
Many everyday things can cause these bones to lose their normal motion or position. This sets off a chain reaction affecting the spinal bones, nerves, muscles, soft tissues, and results in degenerative changes throughout the body. Doctors refer to this as the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Besides describing how the spine can affect your overall health, the Vertebral Subluxation Complex explains why it takes time to restore optimum health. The Vertebral Subluxation Complex is the underlying cause of many health problems and is recognized by its five component parts.
More and more researchers have confirmed the far-reaching effects of abnormal spinal function. Every day we’re learning more about the implications of these five component parts.
Because of the intricacies of the nervous system, more research is being conducted in the areas of immune system response, aging, hormonal involvement, and even genetic consequences.
Clearly, the Vertebral Subluxation Complex may be one of the most common, yet overlooked sources of health problems.
The detection, reduction, and prevention of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex is the unique domain of the Doctor of Chiropractic. If you suspect that you, or someone you know, may be suffering from the Vertebral Subluxation Complex, contact the doctor below for a thorough examination.
