As Advanced Houston Chiropractor is committed to educating our patients, we are providing Spine Chart and Symptoms for a better understanding of the spine and how Vertebral Subluxation can impact or interfere with your body’s overall function and health.

Spine misalignment, injury or degeneration affects neurological functions and can lead to neuromusculoskeletal and visceral disorders.This chart illustrates the connection between the spine and various organ systems that can be affected by vertebral subluxation, a set of signs and symptoms of the spine.

It will also help determine if your condition is suitable or would benefit from chiropractic treatment with Dr. Gregory Johnson, Houston Chiropractor.

Vertebral Subluxation Complex

A Subluxation, or the Vertebral Subluxation Complex, is a dysfunction of the spine in which alignment, movement integrity and physiological functions are altered. Causes of Vertebral Subluxation include car accidents, bad posture, sitting for long hours, alcohol or drugs use, improper lifting, emotional stress and chemical imbalances.

These factors can cause the spine’s vertebrae to loose its healthy motion or position, causing various health problems. At the Advanced Chiropractic Relief, we detect, address painfull symptoms and correct the Vertebral Subluxation Complex, which is broken down into five parts:

Abnormal motion or position of spinal bones
This condition occurs when the spine or vertebrae have lost their normal motion and position. It restricts the ability to turn and bend. It sets in motion the other four components.

Abnormal Nervous System Function
This condition is caused by improper spinal function that blocks, pulls or irritates delicate nerve tissue, causing symptoms in various parts of the body depending on the nerve affected.

Abnormal Muscle Functions
When the muscles supporting the spine tightens, weakens, go into spasm or suffers from atrophy, it results in change of muscle tone. This condition requires repeated spinal adjustments.

Abnormal Soft Tissue Function
This condition is caused by a rise in temperature from an increased blood or lymph supply, resulting in herniation, tearing, degeneration, swelling or inflammation of the discs. Other soft tissues may suffer permanant damage.

Abnormal Spine and Body Function
This condition occurs when bone spurs and other abnormal bony growths fuse abnormal spinal joints. Spinal decay, scar tissue, and other nerve dysfunction can cause other symptoms of the body to fail.
