Spinal Joint Dysfunction

Large stack of books

Spinal joint dysfunction occurs due to the misalignment or malfunction of spinal joints.

If you suffer from spinal dysfunction, in which spinal bones are stuck, fixated and not moving properly, your ability to turn and bend can be compromised. When a spinal bone loses its normal relationship with the bone above or below it, it may set in motion a cascade of effects:

  • Reduced joint motion
  • Nerve irritation
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasm
  • Disc bulging
  • Joint degeneration
  • Pain
  • Numbness in the hands and feet
  • Pins and needles” sensations

As a short-term solution to overwhelming physical, chemical or emotional stress, spinal joint dysfunction is a brilliant coping strategy. Yet, when this stress response doesn’t resolve in a timely manner, or the stress is chronic, it may lead to other consequences.

Chiropractic is a natural healing art which detects the presence of these spinal joint dysfunctions and reduces them using chiropractic adjustments.
