Unlocking Wellness: The role of Subluxation and Musculoskeletal health.
The human body operates on a level where even the brightest minds are still asking how and why we are capable of living in the way that we do. As a human race, we are constantly discovering the intricate pathways in which we can adapt and deal with different environments, situations, and challenges. We understand that the brain and central nervous system is at the forefront of this adaptability. We know that the brain is protected by the skull, and that the spinal cord and nerve roots are protected by the spine.
Enter subluxation, a term used in Chiropractic care to describe spinal misalignments which impact how well your body can function. We know that that Chiropractic care is much more than just “feeling” better, but more importantly performing and functioning better. In this blog, we'll explore how subluxations can affect the musculoskeletal system and discuss how chiropractic adjustments can offer relief within this system. But as I mentioned, this is just one part of Chiropractic care. Though not always painful, subluxations can have far-reaching effects. When the spine is properly aligned, it facilitates smooth communication between the nervous system and the body. Subluxations disrupt this communication, impacting the musculoskeletal system.
The impacts on the musculoskeletal system but not limited to:
- Joint pain: Subluxated vertebrae can increase the pressure within the spinal joints. This can be localised pain or extend beyond and radiate elsewhere. This can contribute to osteoarthritis for example.
- Stiffness and reduced range of motion within the spine: This can affect many aspects of daily life. Like turning your head when driving or bending down to put your socks on.
- Tension or imbalance: Tension within muscles or compensations within your body to cope and manage with the negative change. Leading to spasms or cramps.
Chiropractic Adjustments as a solution:
Chiropractic care, when identifying the subluxated areas can alleviate the resulted musculoskeletal effects by precisely correcting the subluxated vertebrae (spinal bones).
- Restoring the alignment: Gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments addressing the root cause of musculoskeletal issues and providing the relief from the pain, stiffness and imbalances.
- Enhancing the Nervous System Function: Returning the natural ability of the brain and body communication. Reducing the musculoskeletal symptoms and overall well-being of your body.
- Preventative Care: Regular Chiropractic care acts preventatively, addressing subluxations early on to maintain your spinal and nervous system health and reduce the risk of chronic conditions.
Whether you've been suffering with joint pain, stiffness, or a reduced range of motion, the path to recovery begins with acknowledging the role of subluxations in these challenges.
