We get this from parents often. You’ll hear us mention a few words a lot here in the office. One of those words is “subluxation” pronounced sub-lux-ay-shun, or submarine, or sublimation or slippynation depending on how you read it.
All you really need to remember is subluxation = stress stuck on; stress stuck on the nervous system to be specific. When we have a subluxation in our spine it stresses out the nervous system which controls and coordinates all other systems of our body. Subluxations happen when we encounter physical, chemical, or emotional stress that overcomes our bodies ability to adapt and regulate. When a subluxation is present, we can’t properly perceive our environment or coordinate our behavior properly.
As pediatric chiropractors, we see the direct and indirect effects of subluxation in kids every single day. When a subluxation is present, we can’t perceive our environment or coordinate our behavior properly. Sounds a lot like ADHD right? Sounds a lot like sensory processing disorder and anxiety right? The inability to properly respond and adapt to sensory stimulus is the hallmark of these disorders, and having a subluxation ramps up the intensity.
We use state-of-the-art scanning technology to locate, analyze and correct subluxations in kids so that we can help calm and reverse the effects that the subluxation has had on their nervous systems. Getting your children scanned is the first step to helping them. We would love to see if we can help.
