WHAT CAUSES A SUBLUXATION
They may appear from different causes, given that the individual finds himself daily exposed to physical, chemical and emotional stress.
- PHYSICAL CAUSES: traumas in the body (falls, accidents, hits…), repetitive movements that affect our spine, bad posture habits in daily life and at work, and a weak spinal muscles or not balanced.
- CHEMICAL CAUSES: unbalanced diets, taking drugs or alcohol, ingestion of toxins in our food, the water we drink, the air we breathe. The chemical substances are harmful because they lower the good functioning of our body and reduce its ability to successfully adapt and resist the internal and external stress making us more susceptible to subluxations and its consequences.
- EMOTIONAL CAUSES: an excessive or constant every day stress can lower the ability of the body to maintain its normal function. The impact of the emotional stress over the physical health is well documented in medical research which says that can have devastating effects over the immune system, making the body more vulnerable to injuries or illnesses.
