What Is Subluxation?

It is not uncommon for patients to have subluxation but not have any idea what that is. A part of the work we do at Dumas Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Toledo, OH is to educate you on what this type of condition is and how we can treat it. In short, it is an area in the spine where the spinal column does not align properly. When this occurs, it means that the nerves in that area cannot communicate properly with the brain. The result is that you feel a constant level of pain, but your nerves are not communicating the right message.


When subluxation occurs, there is a break in the communication from your joints, organs, tissues, and other areas and the brain. That means you are constantly getting a pain signal that stops you from moving those areas. Our goal is to get rid of that. We can do so by using forceful but not painful movements to properly align your spinal column. In doing so, you feel better, and we have treated the underlying cause of your pain.
