What is a Subluxation
The focus of chiropractic care is proper nervous system function. Since the nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body, normal nervous system function becomes the core reason for good health.
These nerves run from the brain, down the spinal column, and affect various organs throughout the body including your eyes, ears, lungs, kidneys, skin and even your heart.
Chiropractic focuses on a specific condition that robs the body of normal nerve impulses. This condition is called spinal subluxation.

In chiropractic, subluxation is defined as an abnormal positioning and/or mechanical function of the spine that interferes with the normal functioning of the nervous system.
By using the Tytron (thermography) and comparing differences in temperature between opposite sides of the spine and comparing them to established normal values, a chiropractor can make important decisions about the health of your nervous system and what care may be needed.
The results of these tests are readily available to discuss and view.
