Chiropractic adjustments works on the nervous system in your body. The spinal cord is the carrier of nerve impulses from the brain to the body. As these nerves leave the spinal cord they travel through natural openings in the vertebra. These openings can become constricted for any number of reasons including, but not limited to: Stenosis, Spondylolisthesis, Subluxations, Facet syndrome, Disc Degeneration, Arthritis spurring.
In case you were wondering...
Stenosis – the narrowing of the nerve opening due to calcium deposits and/or arthritic deposits.
Spondylolisthesis – A movement forward or backward of the vertebral body that can then constrict the nerve opening. This may happen due to injury or we can be born with this condition and do very well for years with problems surfacing later in life.
Subluxations – This is the term for when the vertebrae loses its proper function. When a subluxation is present there is a marked change in the ability of the spine to articulate smoothly.
Facet syndrome – Similar to a subluxation but there is usually a physical reason and posterior wedging of the vertebrae on another next to it.
