1. What is a vertebral subluxation?
To understand what a vertebral subluxation is, you first have to understand a little about the body’s anatomy and about the nerve system. Virtually every nerve in the body starts as part of the brain. Millions of nerve fibers leave the base of the skull and run down inside the bones of the spine, and there thousands of them branch out at each level to go to the various parts of the body so that the brain can stay in communication with all of the organs, all of the cells, all of the body parts, and make them work as a team. Every time you bend, twist, or turn the body has to ADJUST, move, or re-arrange the position of it’s vertebrae/bones of the spine.
A vertebral subluxation is a circumstance where the body does not perfectly move the bones in your back. The body doesn’t have the energy or force available to properly move them so some of the vertebrae/bones of the spine actually irritate the very nerves they are meant to protect.
So, a vertebral subluxation is a circumstance where the body does not have perfect control over the movement of its own vertebrae/spinal bones, resulting in nerve irritation and a dis-communication or lack of harmony between the brain and all parts of the body.
For you to function perfectly as a human being every single cell in the body must be in constant communication with the brain and the brain must be in the position to regulate and control all of the cells. A vertebral subluxation interferes with this causing an imperfection, so that the various systems of the body function with less than perfection.
A vertebral subluxation interferes with your health potential, but also it interferes with every other potential of the body. It interferes with your coordination, your speed, your stamina, your energy, your income earning capacity, how well you play sports, how well you drive a car, your sex life, your moods, your relationships with your kids, you name it, a vertebral subluxation affects it.
If you have a vertebral subluxation, as long as that vertebral subluxation stays there your body can not run it’s various functions at perfection.
