Did you know that many common physical ailments such as headaches, pain in the extremities, or even persistent stomach pains can in some cases all be traced to a single common source? Vertebral subluxation, also known as spinal subluxation, occurs when misalignment of the bones in the spinal column causes various nerves to come under stress. This stress causes disturbed nerve communications, which your body register as pain.

Vertebral subjugation occurs when one or more of the vertebrae which make up the spine become misaligned with the surrounding vertebrae. This causes undue stress and wear and tear on the vertebrae as well as the surrounding tissues, muscles, ligaments, and discs which make up the spine and can cause considerable back pain.

Vertebral subjugation also puts pressure on the nerves along the spine. This pressure causes inflammation of these nerves, which can disturb or distort the signals from the nerves.

This disturbance in the ability of the nerves to properly communicate can be registered by the brain as pain, numbness, or other unpleasant sensations in parts of the body far removed from the actual location of the nerve inflammation.

Chiropractic adjustment can bring your vertebrae back into proper alignment and eliminate the root cause of disturbed nerve communications.

Your chiropractor can also recommend a course of regular chiropractic adjustments to help keep you at the peak of chiropractic health and prevent vertebral subluxation from reoccurring.

Dr. Heath Gallantine and his staff at Lexington Family Chiropractic offer a full range of chiropractic services for the entire family.
