Subluxations can develop within anyone and are often triggered by physical trauma, harmful toxins, and chronic stress.
What Causes Subluxations?
Physical trauma is one of the leading cause of subluxations. Although most of us immediately associated physical trauma with some type of accident, the reality is that our bodies experience micro traumas each day.
Our personal habits, behaviors, and environments can easily cause subluxation considering particular actions like carrying items on one side the body, wearing inappropriate footwear, or looking down at a screen for long periods.
The type of diet you maintain and the toxins that may be released in your daily environments can disrupt your body’s state of homeostasis. Toxins can enter your body through the types of foods and beverages you consume, as well as through the air you breathe in.
Finally, stress is a significant contributor to subluxations. A recent article released by Forbes reported that over 80 percent of working adults in the United States suffer from chronic stress. Maintaining high levels of stress for prolonged periods can cause the muscles in your neck and upper back to clench, leading to the development of subluxations in the spine.
Chiropractic Treatment for Subluxations
Receiving chiropractic treatment is an easy, all-natural way to remove subluxations that currently exist, as well as prevent others from occurring. Actively maintaining a healthy diet, exercising on a regular basis, and receiving regular adjustments can help ensure that you never develop a subluxation again.
