Subluxation describes what occurs when one of the vertebrae in the spine moves out of position. The vertebra places more pressure and stress on the vertebral nerves, blood vessels, and surrounding muscles which causes an imbalance in the body’s normal processes.

What Causes Subluxation?

Spinal subluxations can have more than one immediate cause.  There are two types of subluxations that can occur: unique instances or regular actions. Examples of unique instances are trauma, car accident, or a fall. Poor sleeping position, poor posture, and incorrect lifting process are all examples of regular actions.

Subluxation Treatment in Coquitlam, BC

Our medical specialists can correct subluxations and additional misalignments. We will work to restore your misaligned vertebrae to its proper position. We can do this through manual manipulation, known as spinal adjustment.  We utilize the Gonstead technique which involves a comprehensive examination of spinal x-rays to pinpoint subluxation of the spine to determine the correct adjustment. In addition, our Thompson technique improves posture and strength by facilitating a full spine technique using an adjusting table that quickly drops the portion of the patient’s body corresponding with the spinal region being adjusted. The force generated by the chiropractor’s thrust into the joint is enhanced with the addition of the segmental drop table.
