31 pairs of spinal nerve roots exit through the vertebra.
Chiropractic is based on the premise that good health depends substantially upon a normally functioning nervous system. Body parts, organs and cells function mostly under the control of nerve impulses to and from the brain and spinal cord.
When there is interference to this normal transmission, normal function is interfered with, and malfunction may result, predisposing a part of your body to pain or other disorder.
The spinal cord leads to 31 pairs of spinal nerve roots that exit the spinal bones. Although the spine offers support and protection for the delicate and sensitive spinal cord and the nerve roots, it can also cause nerve interference when the spinal joints are jammed. You get a “pinched” or “trapped” nerve. Chiropractors call this vertebral subluxation.
Vertebral subluxation is sometimes painless and cannot usually be determined by whether or not the back or neck is painful.
A comprehensive chiropractic mechanical and neurological spinal examination, often including spinal x-ray is usually necessary to diagnose this condition.
Vertebral subluxation is thought to be caused by the birth process itself, trauma, over-exertion, stress, poor nutrition, and other illnesses.
