A spinal subluxation is a term unique to the chiropractic profession. It is a spinal bone that is not properly aligned, causing dysfunction of the joint or the surrounding nerves/ muscles. You may have a potential subluxation if you notice tingling, weakness, numbness, and/ or pain.

The symptoms may not always be clear cut and easy to spot. Common symptoms may include but are not limited to:

• General pain
• Inflammation
• Loss of feeling
• Difficulty moving affected joint
• The feeling of instability
• Visible swelling

Subluxations can have multiple causes, including accidents or injuries, contact sports, repeated movement, and hyper-extension.

Subluxations can be managed with chiropractic adjustments, rest and exercise/ stretching. However, it is important to consult a chiropractor so that related issues don’t go untreated. Our chiropractors are trained in subluxation treatment and may be able to provide appropriate care.
