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. The World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledges this significant difference between the medical definition of a subluxation and the definition according to the field of chiropractic. Vertebral subluxation is a set of signs and symptoms of the spinal column and the chiropractors who assert this concept (specifically, “straight chiropractors”) also add a visceral component to the definition. Chiropractors maintain that a vertebral subluxation complex is a dysfunctional biomechanical spinal segment which is fixated. Chiropractors additionally assert that the dysfunction actively alters neurological function, which in turn, is believed to lead to neuromusculoskeletal and visceral disorders. When we diagnose conditions, we are in realm of medicine. But when we adjust the spine to correct nerve interference, thus allowing innate intelligence to do the healing, we are then practicing chiropractic at its fundamental best.
