What Is A Vertebral Subluxation?
A vertebral subluxation occurs when the spine inhibit proper motion or are in a position to negatively affect communication between the brain and the rest of your body. Vertebra refers to your spine, sub means less, and luxation means dislocation.
Many things can lead to a vertebral subluxation. A few include a vertebra being misaligned due to a slip and fall or car accident, osteoporosis, poor posture, joint swelling due to damage, and degenerative changes of the spine.

At Elite Sports Medicine, we work with pain management specialists and several surgeons to create the right treatment plan for our patients. The nervous system controls every cell and organ in the body; chiropractic physicians focus their attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned and, if there are shifts, helping the spine come back into alignment.
