The World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledges that there is a significant difference between the medical definition of a subluxation and the definition according to the field of chiropractic. According to medical doctors, subluxations are “significant structural displacements.” Chiropractors on the other hand suggest that a dysfunctional segment, whether or not it is significantly displaced, should be considered a subluxation. Vertebral subluxation is a set of signs and symptoms of the spinal column. The chiropractors who assert this concept add a visceral component to the definition: They maintain that a vertebral subluxation complex is a dysfunctional biomechanical spinal segment, fixated, which actively alters neurological function and in turn leads to neuromusculoskeletal and visceral disorders. In the practice of medicine we diagnose and treat conditions. But when we adjust the spine to correct nerve interference, allowing our body’s innate intelligence to do the healing by minutely setting the vertebra, we are then practicing chiropractic at its fundamental best. Through chiropractic, the world has learned that the kingdom of health lies within. Discover a better you with the best Loveland chiropractors. Call today for a consultation.
