You may have heard of “subluxation” before, but never really knew what it meant. Subluxations can happen for all sorts of reasons. People experience different levels of pain from subluxations. Newborn babies can even have subluxations! Without treatment, it can affect your day-to-day life and here is how:
How Subluxations are Affecting My Life
- Pain in the Neck or Back
The most common (and obvious) symptom of subluxation are pains in the neck or back. Some may experience a mild discomfort, while others a tight, sharp pain. If you experience neck or back pain, it might be time to get checked out for any misalignments of the spine.
- Difficulty Moving
When your spine is misaligned it may be difficult to move. People notice a stiffness or a lack of mobility. If you feel that your flexibility is worsening, getting adjusted from the chiropractor may help!
When the spine is misaligned, pressure and tension can build up, ultimately resulting in a bad headache. Headaches have been known to pop up out of nowhere thanks to subluxations.
If you suspect these pains are a subluxation of your spine, give your Appleton chiropractor a call. Chiropractors can find and correct these types of problems using chiropractic techniques, such as spinal manipulation, to adjust the vertebrae of the spine.
