Are you suffering from one or more subluxations in your spine which are impacting your ability to lead an active, healthy and comfortable day-to-day lifestyle? If so, don’t hesitate to seek treatment from our qualified and experienced chiropractors, who can help manage the condition and alleviate the pain/stiffness associated with your subluxation.
For those who are new to the concept, subluxation is a condition that occurs when one or more of the 24 vertebrae in the spine becomes misaligned. The misalignment places pressure on nearby nerves, blood vessels and other soft tissues which can lead to a range of issues, including pain and discomfort, inflammation, and restricted movement. It can also affect your posture and range of motion.
Fortunately, chiropractic care can provide relief for these symptoms.
Subluxation is most commonly caused by physical trauma such as a car accident or sports injuries, but it can also be the result of ongoing stress or poor posture over time. The most common symptoms of subluxation tend to be neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches and lower back pain. Other potential signs include numbness in the hands/feet, tingling sensations in limbs, fatigue and dizziness.
At SA Wellness Centre, our chiropractors diagnose subluxations through a combination of physical examination and x-ray imaging if necessary. After diagnosis, we adopt a multifaceted approach to treating your condition. This primarily involves manual adjustments and gentle manipulations of the affected vertebrae to return them back to their correct alignment, with the aim to help reduce pressure on nerves, muscles and other tissues surrounding the area.
As well as providing relief from painful symptoms, this process helps restore normal movement patterns, allowing improved overall performance during everyday activities as well as sporting activities if applicable.
Subluxation can be an incredibly painful condition but with proper diagnosis and treatment, it doesn’t have to be something you suffer from long-term or even at all! Regular check-ups with your chiropractor are recommended to ensure your spine remains healthy and properly aligned, so that you don’t have to experience any unnecessary pain or discomfort going forward.
