Subluxation, in its simplest form, is a term that chiropractors use to describe a misaligned vertebra and the nerve interference that occurs as a result. With any spinal misalignment, the area for the nerve to exit the spinal canal is decreased. The misalignment causes pressure to be placed on the nerve, and therefore, diminishes the nerve’s function. Subluxations may or may not cause pain, but will most certainly cause a patient to have decreased function of their nervous system. Whatever muscles, tissues, or organs the irritated nerve is supplying will not function at 100%. At Bolingbrook Family Chiropractic, we specialize in properly aligning the spine and other joints to restore your body’s optimal function, and as a result, increasing movement and decreasing pain associated with the misalignment.
It is important to address misalignments in the spine because dysfunction of the spinal segment will negatively alter neurological function, causing malfunction through nerves. As chiropractors, it is our job to locate subluxations and fix the problem. The specific, directed force of manual spinal adjustments will help restore the alignment over time. Chiropractic adjustments are the best way to correct and realign the spine to its original state. At Bolingbrook Family Chiropractic, we don’t just treat your symptoms from subluxation; we will detect, reduce, and stabilize your spine in order to prevent it from happening again. We are highly skilled in this area and have many years of training to adjust your joints correctly. At Bolingbrook Family Chiropractic, it is our goal to not only treat your current symptoms but also set your body up to reach long-term health.
