Vertebral Subluxation Treatment


Vertebral Subluxation Treatment

Vertebral subluxation treatment will depend on the practitioner you choose to diagnose and treat your particular condition. That’s because not every medical practitioner defines vertebral subluxation the same way. The World Health Organization defines vertebral subluxation as a partial misalignment of a vertebra, and this is the definition you’ll usually encounter when you see an orthopedic specialist or a neurologist. Many chiropractors define the term based on the original intention of the founder of chiropractics, D.D. Palmer, in 1895. That is to say, spinal misalignments – some detectable by X-ray, some undetectable – contribute to the development not only of neck or back pain but of every other disease as well.

What symptoms require vertebral subluxation treatment?

Chiropractors treat vertebral subluxation primarily with spinal manipulation but may also prescribe exercise, ice treatments and other methods to complement the physical realignment process. The symptoms that might indicate the presence of vertebral subluxation include:

  • Neck pain
  • Middle back pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Joint pain in the arms
  • Joint pain in the legs
  • Headaches

Minimally invasive vertebral subluxation treatment

Many times, symptoms defined by chiropractors as vertebral subluxation overlap with the mainstream definition, which attributes the development of pain, tingling, numbness or muscle weakness to spinal nerve compression. These symptoms, which often are associated with age-related degenerative spine conditions such as osteoarthritis, usually can be managed through the use of conservative treatment methods like pain medication, exercise, stretching and more. However, if chronic symptoms persist despite several weeks or months of conservative vertebral subluxation treatment, contact Laser Spine Institute to learn about the minimally invasive alternatives to traditional open spinal fusion. Our surgeons have helped tens of thousands of people find relief from their neck and back pain.
