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
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.
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 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 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.
