What Can Go Wrong With Your Back?

An examination may have revealed areas of your spine that are malfunctioning. This often results in nervous system compromise, impairment to the muscles that support the spine, damage to soft tissues of the spine, and sets in motion a degenerative process. Researchers refer to this five-part problem as the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.

Spinal Kinesiopathology

Abnormal motion or position of spinal bones
Physical trauma such as improper lifting, car accidents, repetitive motions and poor sleeping habits can cause spinal problems. Emotional stress and chemical imbalances are common culprits, too.

Abnormal nervous system function
Improper motion or position of spinal bones can rub, irritate, pinch or choke delicate nerves. This can impair the functions of the tissues, organs and systems controlled by these nerves.

Abnormal muscle function
Muscles supporting the spine can weaken and atrophy, or become tight or go into spasm. Unfortunately, scar tissues and adhesions penetrate these malfunctioning muscles, changing their elasticity.

Abnormal soft tissue function
Discs, ligaments and other soft tissues can malfunction, too. These important soft tissues have a poor blood supply, so proper healing often requires continued care even after the relief of obvious symptoms.

Abnormal function of the spine and body
The body responds with bone spurs and spinal decay, fusing malfunctioning spinal joints. Degenerative changes can be seen in other organs and tissues which have been deprived of normal nerve control.
