Doctors of Chiropractic correct vertebral subluxations. This is just a fancy word that describes when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and/or lose normal motion and create interferences in the communication between the brain and the body. Your nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) is what controls and coordinates all the functions of your entire body. Spinal nerves come off the spinal cord between each of the bones in your spine and travel to all the organs, muscles, and tissues of your body.
Vertebral subluxations interfere with the signals traveling over these nerves, preventing the body from functioning at its best. Through precise analysis, your chiropractor can locate and gently correct or reduce subluxations in the spine.
At The Wellpath Center, we use advanced computerized testing to detect subluxations and measure their severity. Not only does this technology assist in accurately determining the extent of care a patient needs, it also allows the chiropractor to track the results of our care.
