Designed to identify misaligned spinal structures (vertebral subluxation) and extremities, then eliminate the impact on the nervous system, and promote the spine’s ideal position for overall health.
What is a SUBLUXATION?
A vertebral subluxation is a spinal abnormality that interferes with your nerves. In other words, it is a misaligned vertebra causing interference with nerve messages between your brain and your body. Also known as the “silent killer”, it can slowly eat away at your health and vitality for years without you having the slightest awareness of it. Optimal Performance Clinic specializes in locating, analyzing and correcting vertebral subluxation.
Subluxations are caused by 2 types of stress:
With specific adjustments and exercise, chiropractic works to restore and maintain the spine & extremities to their optimal positions.
Macro-stress (accidents, falls, sport injuries and other trauma)
Micro-stress (repeated movements that gradually wear down your body parts, bad posture, emotional stress which causes chronic tension, and many more)
Subluxations can occur from a difficult birth, childhood falls, sports injuries and more. It is the reason that infants, children and adults need spinal care. The most widespread and common cause of nerve irritation and interference is the vertebral subluxation complex.
