Vancouver Chiropractic Care
Our physicians have a combined experience of providing Vancouver chiropractic care for nearly 30 years. By detecting and correcting spinal alignment and mobility abnormalities, they have successfully treated hundreds of local Vancouver residents as well as patients from the Portland metropolitan area.
They detect and render specific gentle spinal adjustments in order to restore normal motion of the adjacent segments, accomplishing two vitally important goals:
- Preventing a cascading downstream degenerative process in the spinal joints and discs.
- Taking the pressure off the injured joint and allowing it to heal under reduced mechanically stressful loads.
NW Injury & Rehab Center takes a holistic approach to chiropractics and not only helps with day to day problems such as carpal tunnel, upper and lower back pain, and neck pain, but also helps to relieve body trauma from a fall, car accident, or sports injury.
What is Spinal Sublixation?
One of the foundational principles of chiropractic care is the detecting and correction of spinal subluxations, which is often referred to as spinal joint dysfunction and spinal misalignments. Another way to understand subluxation is by breaking down the word. Subluxation is derived from the Latin words sub, which means less than, and the Latin word luxate, which means dislocate or out of position. Therefore, vertebral subluxations are considered partially dislocated, out of position, or misaligned spinal vertebral bones.
Subluxations, or spinal misalignments, are primarily treated with gentle specific spinal adjustments best administered by doctors of Chiropractic. Chiropractic is the only profession with extensive education, rigorous training, and years of experience in order to detect and correct spinal alignment abnormalities.
What is the big deal if I have some spinal vertebrae that are out of alignment?
Well for starters, not only are the bones out of alignment but are most often coupled with abnormal motion of the spinal joints and pinched nerves. If left untreated, the stage is set for degeneration or arthritis to prematurely gain access to your spine. This is just scratching the surface of the damaging effects spinal subluxations or misalignments can have on an individual’s health. All of this is very preventable, however it does require a proactive mindset on the patient’s part and an experienced chiropractor to diagnose the problem and deliver a customized treatment plan.
NW Injury & Rehab Center provides chiropractic care restoring normal motion to the spine through gentle adjustments of the spinal joints or spinal segments promoting normal nervous system function. A spinal segment is two adjacent spinal bones stacked on top of one another. These spinal segments often sustain damage to the supportive ligaments through normal wear, sports injuries, or auto accidents. The spinal segments adjacent to the level of the injured ligaments tend to become stiff and rigid through the body’s natural protective mechanism known as muscle spasms. This increased stiffness at adjacent levels place greater stress on the injured levels when you bend or turn your neck and body.
