Joint subluxation is an extremely painful condition that affects the alignment of the spinal cord. Commonly caused due to trauma or emotional stress, the condition results in extreme pain and restricted movement of the affected structures.
At HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, we provide specialized chiropractic care for subluxation to all individuals who may be experiencing joint instability due to this condition. Our chiropractors hold great expertise and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of subluxation and developing an individualized treatment plan to help the paint regain their strength and mobility.
What Causes Joint Subluxation?
Joint subluxation may be caused due to the following three reasons:
- Emotional Stress — Emotional stress due to any reason may result in excessive muscle strain and spasms and affect the normal alignment of the spinal cord.
- Physical Stress — Accidents, sports injuries, poor posture, and repetitive stress injuries, all can interfere with the spinal alignment and result in vertebral subluxation. In addition to this, diseases like multiple sclerosis and polio can also damage nerves.
- Chemical Stress — Prolonged exposure to certain chemicals or regular use of some medicines may cause subluxation as well.
Regardless of the underlying cause, vertebral subluxation results in the following symptoms:
- Pain and muscle stiffness
- Postural imbalance
- Numbness and tingling in the extremities
- Reduced mobility
