Many things can lead to a vertebral subluxation. Some of the more common causes found are:
- A vertebra going out of place (“misalignment”) because of a slip or fall.
- The entire spine misaligning globally due to poor posture.
- Joint swelling caused by damage done to the intervertebral joint.
- An inflammatory response caused by a poor diet or psychological stress.
- Osteoporosis or degenerative changes of the spine or intervertebral discs.
- Trigger points and tight back muscles that pull the vertebrae out of place.
Chiropractic involves treating the person as a whole by assisting the body to heal naturally. It has long been
known that healthy, nutritious diets coupled with rest, exercise and spinal adjustments are an integral part of preventative health care.
In order to function to its optimum capacity, the body needs to absorb essential nutrients such as
carbohydrates, fats, minerals, proteins and various vitamins. These ensure healthy digestion, metabolizing
and excreting which, in turn, leads to homeostasis. This refers to the body’s ability to regulate its inner
environment to ensure stability as it responds to changes in the external environment. Poor diets that
include foods rich in sugars and fats can contribute to other health issues such as diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers.
While chiropractors prescribe natural, drug-free treatments their focus remains on the body’s ability to heal itself. With factors such as diet, exercise, rest and hereditary issues affecting optimum body functioning, chiropractors will consider a patient’s medical history, past injuries, present symptoms, and postural analysis. Further physical, neurological and orthopedic examinations may be included and, dependent on the findings, patients may be referred to other health practitioners for additional consultation.
Nutritional therapy has evolved as a need for such specialist treatment grows from the persistent nutritional deficiencies that are commonplace in the world today. Stressful environments and a lack of essential nutrients in the daily diet demand additional support to aid the body in preventative health care.
