Subluxations are misalignments that develop within one or more of your vertebrae and hinder nerve circulation.
In fact, subluxations prevent critical information from transferring to your brain through your spinal cord, which affects your body’s ability to function correctly.
The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta treat subluxations on a daily basis and are experienced at rendering specific techniques that provide immediate pain relief.
If you suffer from subluxations, consider the following information that highlights some of the lesser known causes and why Chiropractic care is the perfect solution.
How Subluxations Develop
Subluxations can develop within anyone, regardless of their age, gender, or medical history. Most subluxations are caused by toxins, personal stress, or physical trauma.
Subluxations and Physical Trauma
Trauma is the easiest catalyst to address when it comes to treating subluxations. Although most people tend to associate trauma with major accidents, your body is confronted with numerous traumatic experiences each and every day.
Behaviors and personal habits can cause subluxations, which means that if you have a habit of carrying your bag on one side of your body or walking in high heels for extended periods of time, you can develop subluxations.
Subluxations and Toxins
Toxins form when your body’s homeostasis becomes disrupted based on the type of food you consume or the environment you are in. Toxins can enter your body through a variety of ways, including:
- Consuming processed foods
- Exposure to air pollution
- Exposure to chemicals often found in cleaning supplies
- Drinking bottled water
Chemical imbalances can lead to muscle contractions that result in the creation of subluxations.
Subluxations and Personal Stress
Personal stress is the leading cause of subluxations. Stress causes the muscles in your neck and upper back area to become constricted, which creates a significant amount of tension.
This tension leads to the development of subluxations, while also causing a chemical imbalance to take place because of the type of hormones that are released during periods of stress.
How Chiropractic Care Treats Subluxations
Chiropractic care is the only way to efficiently and thoroughly treat subluxations. Ongoing Chiropractic treatment is required to locate, analyze, and permanently remove all subluxations that exist, as well prevent them from returning shortly.
Although it is impossible to completely remove all of the micro-traumas, toxins, and stress you are exposed to on a daily basis, Chiropractic serves as an excellent source of preventative care that is vital for maintaining superior health.
