Are you allowing subluxation to linger?
Subluxation essentially refers to the spine moving out of alignment. The problem begins when, whether due to acute trauma or repetitive trauma over time, spinal joints move out of alignment and put pressure on the nearby nerves. You may feel pain in the back due to the nerve compression, but what you probably don’t feel is the dysfunction that accrues when this nerve is not able to send and receive signals clearly.
Subluxation throws a monkey wrench into the smooth functioning of your nervous system
There are 31 paired nerve roots that exit from the spine, sending and receiving signals to and from the brain. A subluxation jeopardizes this fragile set up and contributes to the following symptoms:
- Nerve pain
- Tissue inflammation and painful swelling
- Chronic partial tightening of muscles
- Limited range of motion
At OFW Chiropractic, we are your go to source for correcting subluxation in Westwood
Subluxation causes pain which causes mental stress, leading to further tightening of the muscles and more pain. This is a cycle that perpetuates itself! Our proposed solution is to stop the problem where it starts: at the source which is, in this case, subluxation. Using targeted adjustments, we move the spinal joints back into alignment, alleviating compression of the nearby nerve and facilitating the smooth functioning of your nervous system. If you are interested in experiencing a life free of subluxation, give our office in Westwood a call to schedule an appointment today.
