partial displacement of a joint or organ
a change in function of a joint that involves altered mechanical change and altered nerve function
a condition that occurs when two bones of the spine misalign upon one another causing nerve compression
a condition where the vertebrae are misaligned
a decrease in the normal position and motion of the spinal bones (vertebrae)
a disruption of the normal structural orientation of the bones of the spine
a disruption or interference to this communication
a fixation of one or more of the vertebrae that do not allow the spine to move properly through its normal range of motion and may cause pain
a joint in the spine or skeleton that is misaligned enough to cause irritation and possible pressure on nerves
a minor misalignment of a segment of your spine
a minor misalignment of the segments of the spine causing nerve interference and related loss of function
a motion segment of the spine, in which alignment, movement integrity and or physiologic function are altered, which impinges nerve, occludes an opening and interferes with the transmission of mental impulses between brain cell and tissue cell
an alteration in the movement or alignment of a joint that alters the normal function of the muscles or nerves in the area
a neurological disturbance caused by a nerve that is not functioning properly
a slight abnormal relation between bony surfaces, maintained by uneven contraction in opposing groups of muscles which control the articulation
a slight dislocation
a spinal bone that is fixated or "stuck" resulting in nerve pressure and interfering with the innate ability of the body to maintain health)
a vertebrae that is out of alignment with the vertebrae above and below resulting in nerve pressure and interference of the nerve impulse from the brain to the tissue cell
a vertebra in the spine which is out of alignment
a vertebra(spinal bone) that is out of alignment and puts pressure on the associated nerve as it exits from the spinal column
A separation of a joint due to joint lexity and/or injury; often painful.
Describes the situation when the two articulating bones forming a joint move beyond their normal range. Further displacement may lead to dislocation. This can also be applied to tendons starting to displace beyond their normal "line of pull".
A displacement of the spine that causes interference to the nervous system. Since your spine affects the nerves in all parts of your body, problems in your spine may cause many types of health problems. More info
There are five components to the subluxation consisting of abnormal motion or position of the spinal bones (Kinesiopathology), abnormal nervous system function (Neuropathophysiology), abnormal muscle function (Myopathology), abnormal soft tissue function (Histopathology), and abnormal function of the spine and body (Pathophysiology); This is what chiropractors are typically looking for.
Chiropractic term that means one or more vertabrae are out of their proper alignment.
An incomplete luxation or dislocation; though a relationship is altered, contact between joint surfaces remains.
Incomplete dislocation of a joint
A term used by chiropractors to refer to a blockage or spinal misalignment involving vertebrae impinging on spinal nerves, creating interference with the transmission of neural impulses which can result in pain or discomfort.
A misalignment or malfunction of the spine that is less than a total dislocation, which affects the nervous system and it's ability to correctly control or monitor the organs and tissues of the body.
In chiropractic, a misalignment of bones within joints said to interfere with the flow of nervous impulses and diminish the body's ability to stay healthy.
Partial displacement of a tooth
shifting of a joint or vertebra
A subluxation is a minor misalignment of bone, usually in the spine, that causes an interference with the transmission of messages in our nervous system. A subluxation therefore interferes with the communication of our innate intelligence throughout our body.
A complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neutral integrity and may influence organ system function and general health. A subluxation is evaluated, diagnosed, and managed through the use of chiropractic procedures based on the best available rational and empirical evidence.
a condition in which a joint begins to slip out of alignment
A vertebra(e) that has lost its normal position, normal function, and its equilibrium sufficiently to modify nerve conduction.
A misalignment and malfunction of the spine that is less than a dislocation that interferes with the nervous system, associated organs, muscles, and soft tissues of the body.
A subluxation is the displacement of a spinal vertebra, causing it to impinge on a given nerve. Manual therapy (such as chiropractic or traditional osteopathy) was typically recommended by Edgar Cayce to correct subluxations.
When a vertebra of the spine looses its proper position and becomes misaligned with the vertebrae above and below it, thus compromising the nerves, which results in interference of nerve transmissions from the brain to tissues, organs, and muscles. Unfortunately, most subluxations have no pain, so generally many people are not aware of them. Subluxations physically cause your spine to wear unevenly, which leads to early degeneration and break down of the spine.
a term used most often by the chiropractic profession to describe an unnatural condition of misalignment in the vertebrae of the spine.
