Subluxation Complex

Throughout our chiropractic website, you will see the word “misalignment” due to its familiarity.  The correct terminology would be “vertebral subluxation complex“.  In our Jackson, Michigan chiropractic office we are uniquely trained to locate and correct subluxations (misalignments).  A common interference to the nervous system are the 24 moving bones of the spinal column due to their direct relationship with the spinal cord and spinal nerves.  A loss of the normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system.  This irritation to the nervous system almost always relates to the patient’s chief complaint, whether it is neck pain, mid-back pain, low back pain, disc herniation, disc bulge, or sciatica.

A careful analysis by skilled chiropractors commonly reveals a vertebral subluxation complex (misalignment) that involves abnormal motion or position of the vertebra, abnormal function of the nervous system, abnormal function of muscles, abnormal soft tissue (disc, ligament)function, or abnormal function of the spine (decay/degeneration).  As chiropractors, our primary focus is detecting and correcting these complex spinal problems.  If subluxations (misalignments) are detected, gentle chiropractic adjustments help re-align the spine and allow the healing process to begin.
