Our doctors at Chan Family Chiropractic focus on locate, analyze and correct vertebral subluxation. Subluxations are misalignments in the spine which can irritate your nervous system and leads to interference in the communication between the brain, nervous system and the body. Subluxation can lead to many different types of conditions such as neck pain and headaches, lower back pain, shoulder pain, various joint pain, sciatica, disc degeneration and many other health related problems.
The causes of subluxation are the 3 “T”s: Thoughts, Toxins and Trauma.
Thoughts may include mental and emotional stress.
Toxins refer to the chemical stress we placed upon our body in the forms of our food additives, preservatives, shampoos, cleaning solutions, etc.
Trauma can be major like a fall or an accident but it also includes microtraumas due to repetitive daily activities.
The 3 “T”s are part of everyday life and our body can correct most of the subluxations when it is functioning optimally. However, when the subluxations are too severe or when our body is not functioning optimally due to unresolved chronic subluxations, our body cannot correct the subluxations on its own. And a vicious cycle of subluxations reducing the body’s immunity, leading to even more unresolved subluxations and so on. Regular chiropractic care aims to remove any nerve interferences before it becomes chronic and keeps the body always functioning at its best!
