Self-diagnosis: How do you know if you have a Vertebral Subluxation?

Typically the first symptom of any joint misalignment (subluxation) is a tight muscle or group of muscles. In such case “when stretching does not help” and or some other type of therapy does not help to eliminate the tight muscle/s, then it is safe to say you have a spinal joint subluxation, which typically results in “INFLAMMATION”, which in turn can have a negative effect on the 31 pair of branching spinal nerves.

Since the 31 pair of branching spinal nerves in conjunction with the smaller adjacent branching autonomic nerves do control every aspect of the body it is safe to say that many of the symptoms you may be experiencing can be the result of a vertebral joint subluxation (misaligned spinal joints). Of course not every symptom you may experience is the result of a vertebral joint subluxation.

How can I test myself to see if I may have a spinal misalignment (subluxation)?

Since many health issues can be the bi-product of nerve interference resulting from a spinal misalignment (subluxation), one should know how to determine if they have a spinal misalignment.

  • Typically, the first symptom for a spinal misalignment (subluxation) is not “pain” it is an imbalance in the musculature where one or more muscles are unilaterally (one side of the body) tighter than the other side.

  • One can simply determine if a spinal misalignment exists by stretching the musculature of the upper and lower body over a 3 to 4-day period of time. Perform each stretching position the same, right or left, which will help you to find the tighter muscles.

  • While stretching most people will find several areas where the musculature is not balanced. After 3 to 4 days of stretching the muscles while focusing more on the tighter areas one should notice that the musculature is either balanced or not balanced.

  • If after 3-4 days the musculature is not balanced (having the same flexibility) then its is likely that you have a vertebral misalignment (subluxation) and should have your spinal vertebra and or other joints of the body checked by a trained Chiropractor.
