What is a subluxation?
A subluxation is a tiny, often PAINLESS physical distortion or misalignment that interferes with the flow of information. Subluxations are blockages that interfere with internal communications, inner harmony and healing. These blockages can cause physical, mental/emotional malfunction. They are often associated with loss of energy, pain, weakness and disease of all types.
D.D. Palmer, the discoverer of Chiropractic, said; “Every act and thought is controlled by the nerves; they furnish the life of the body.” Disease, he reasoned, occurred when the subluxation interfered with the ability of the nerve to transmit impulses from brain to body and body to brain. The body then could only do its best with incomplete and inaccurate information creating a situation of disease or less than optimal health.
How do you get subluxations?
Subluxations are usually the result of physical, emotional or chemical stresses. Physical stresses might include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions or in properlifting. Emotional stress, such as grief, anger or depression, may produce subluxations. Alcohol, drugs or preservatives are common examples of chemical stress.

What does chiropractic cure?
Chiropractic doesn’t cure anything! Nor is it a treatment for disease. If there’s going to be any curing, your body will do it. Not doctors. And certainly not drugs. The best doctors reduce the interferences that may be preventing your body from expressing its inborn healing capacity. That’s why chiropractors are interested in the nervous system with the revived nerve supply, your self-healing abilities are unleashed.
