Our bodies have decreased function when subluxations occur in our spine. A subluxation means that the joints of the spine are not moving well and are inflamed, which irritates the spinal nerves and impairs nervous energy to the area the nerve supplies. The nerves are like electrical wires from your brain to your body, they supply information to our entire body, muscles, joints, skin and even organs.
If a body part doesn’t get the information it needs, that’s when things start to go wrong. Subluxations can be caused by three different things. Firstly from physical stress to the body such as an injury or postural strain, secondly, chemical stress from toxins in the environment or that we consume or thirdly, emotional stress.
In some subluxations pain occurs due to this misalignment, which is why a chiropractic adjustment is so effective for conditions such as sciatica and back pain.
When you see a chiropractor at Brisbane Natural Health, they will identify whether you have any subluxations or misalignments in your spine, pelvis, skull or limbs. They will then use a gentle chiropractic adjustment to correct your subluxations which allows the nervous system to function better and helps to relieve pain caused by irritation to your spinal nerves.
Sometimes during an adjustment from your chiropractor, you may hear a popping sound. This is perfectly normal and is simply a sound made by tiny pockets of gas moving within your joint. Chiropractic care is gentle, safe and mostly pain free.
Spinal adjustments correct misalignments, which then allows your spine to live life to the fullest!
