Dr. C.H Suh, one of the foremost specialists in spinal biomechanics, and his research team have demonstrated that the slightest pressure on a spinal nerve as it merges on the spine destroys the function of that nerve by 60% in a matter of minutes, causing the nerve to malfunction! How much pressure is that? It is the weight of a quarter on the back of your hand.
If you ignore the subluxation, will it go away by itself? NO! Some of the most common words heard in our Clinic are: “I thought it would go away.”
Clinical research has shown that a vertebral subluxation (misalignment of the vertebrae that compromises nerve function), once started, will usually intensify throughout a lifetime in a series of four advancing degenerative phases, ultimately terminating in a permanent condition, and a permanent lack of health.
Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxation. It is possible to arrest the degenerative process, allowing your body’s recuperative powers to begin reversing the damage (depending on how much destruction has already occurred). You nervous system begins to function normally once again and your health and personal potential return.
