While there are many different models of how to best describe the vertebral subluxation complex, the definition remains the same. A subluxation is technically a partial dislocation of a bone (usually a vertebra). However, in chiropractic, we are more concerned about the implications of the subluxation to our overall health and well-being. A vertebral subluxation causes nerve interference in our spinal cord, which can lead to abhorrent nerve impulse delivery. Our number one aim as an office is to locate and remove vertebral subluxations.
