Spinal Subluxations and Degeneration

The vertebral subluxation complex is caused by any stress that overwhelms the body. This stress can be physical, emotional, or chemical. All stresses will cause one to function at a lower capacity leading to illness, disease, exhaustion and accelerated aging.

The following are examples of stresses that can subluxate your spine:

  1. A difficult birth or delivery
  2. An auto accident
  3. A fall no matter how long ago (even as a toddler)
  4. Bad posture
  5. Eating junk food (chemical stress)
  6. Using the same body position over and over at work or play
  7. Emotional tension
  8. Pushing yourself too hard
  9. Being a couch potato
  10. Dental work
  11. Drug use, medications
  12. Surgery
  13. Working in an awkward position
  14. A mild jar when you are unprepared
  15. An emotional shock when your energy is low
  16. Long car rides

In the United States, significant amounts of spinal degeneration can be detected in over one third of the population by age 30. By age 70, it is present in nearly everyone and often in advanced stages; it has been blamed for the 180,000 cases of bed- or chair-ridden seniors.

Reversing Spinal Degeneration

Chiropractic care may reduce, halt and possibly reverse spinal degeneration by improving spinal balance and posture and keeping your joints, nerves and discs healthy and strong. Of course, the best approach to spinal degeneration is to prevent it in the first place. That is why spinal checkups for all children and adults should be part of everyone’s healthcare regime.
