What Causes Vertebral Subluxation?
Essentially, vertebral subluxation occurs when the spine becomes misaligned, which causes interference of the nerve messages between the brain and the body. There are many factors that could lead to vertebral subluxation. These include:
- Sports Injury
- Physically demanding activities
- A sedentary lifestyle
- Poor posture
- Car accident
- Lifting objects incorrectly
Once the spine loses its healthy motion or gets misaligned, a series of health issues could arise. However, our sports chiropractor can detect vertebral subluxation before things get out of hand and figure out an effective way to correct it. Through adjustment therapy, patients can enjoy long-lasting relief.
Telltale Signs of a Misaligned Spine
What symptoms require a visit to our sports chiropractor in Omaha? In some cases, the misalignment might result in acute injury, while it might be too mild to notice in other cases. Here are some of the signs:
Uneven Wear and Tear on your Shoes
When your spine is out of alignment, you tend to exert more weight on one leg than the other. As a result, you can tell if one leg bears more pressure by looking at the shoes. If one shows more wear and tear than the other, it could indicate an underlying problem.
Limited Neck Motion
A misaligned spine inhibits you from exploring the full range of motion with your neck. As a result, you could experience some pain when turning it to the right or left.
The Length of Your Feet
If you feel like one of your legs can extend further than the other, the odds are, your spine is out of alignment.
If you notice any of these signs, it would be best to consult with a sports chiropractor for appropriate spinal care.
Benefits of Visiting Our Sports Chiropractor
Sports chiropractic care offers a host of specific benefits for athletes, including improving your level of strength. Here are a few other benefits you may experience:
While there aren’t any treatments that offer athletes complete protection from injury while training or playing, sports chiropractors can play an important role in helping active patients avoid injury.
If your musculoskeletal system is out of alignment, let’s say from overtraining, tension can be created in one area of the body. If this tension persists, it can lead to a sprain, strain or some other injury.
Misalignments of the spine can also impact your range of motion and ultimately increase your risk of injury. When our sports chiropractor, Dr. Wiese, corrects the misalignment your range of motion increases, which decreases your risk of injury.
Faster Injury Recovery
Typically any injured athlete wants to get back to their sport of choice as quickly as possible, making sports chiropractic care an important part of the process. There have been many studies over the years that linked chiropractic care with faster healing from strains, sprains and more.
Sports chiropractic can help improve flexibility. When the spine is misaligned it can limit the movement of your neck, arms, legs and back, which ultimately can result in poor athletic performance.
As the misalignment is corrected you may experience significantly greater extension of the neck, arms, legs and hips.
Together all of these things can improve your ability to perform, both in practice and in play. Call us today for an appointment at (402) 934-4220.
