What is a Subluxation?


When a vertebra becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position, this is referred to in the chiropractic profession as a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma.

Dr. Anderson specializes in Upper Cervical chiropractic utilizing the Knee Chest technique to remove the subluxation at the Atlas (C1) and/or Axis (C2).  These two vertebrae protect your brain stem which is responsible for all communications between the brain & the rest of your body.  When you are subluxated, these vertebras put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the natural pathways from the brain to the tissue cell.  These pathways need to be clear in order for each individual cell to function properly. 

As time goes by and a subluxation remains, the spine and surrounding features such as discs can begin to degenerate. Over time, this degeneration becomes more difficult to reverse as the surrounding muscles, nerves and bones begin to adjust to the new shape. The body is an amazing machine. It will start to accommodate these changes by compensating in other areas. The longer this goes on, the more difficult it is and the longer it takes to get back to near perfect position.
