Spinal Subluxation’s Precipitating Factors and Effects

Chiropractic treatment has everything to do with the spinal subluxations that our bodies experience. When treating spinal problems, chiropractors want to ensure that they give you the best physical treatment they can and they educate you on the issues surrounding the subluxations that affect your body, so that you are armed with powerful knowledge that can help you improve your situation.

There are various precipitating factors of spinal subluxations, which are factors that either cause or advance the effects of the painful issues. They have been divided into two categories, which include “the unequal or asymmetrical muscular efforts upon the joint structures” and “the inequality in the supporting tissues of a particular joint.”

If there is an inequality in muscular balance, it may be triggered by the following:

Precipitating Factors of Spinal Subluxations
Vertebral subluxations may be either causes or effects, and the immediate causes may be divided into two major categories: the unequal or asymmetrical muscular efforts upon the joint structures and the inequality in the supporting tissues of a particular joint such as the cartilage, IVD, ligaments, etc. Some form of internal or external stress is usually necessary to produce a fixation to a degree sufficient to cause a state of dysfunction.

An inequality in muscular balance (ipsilateral weakness and compensatory contralateral contraction) may be initiated by trauma, postural distortion phenomena, psychomotor responses, somatic and visceral responses, paralytic effects, biochemical reactions and stress factors.

There are some primary and secondary effects, which may occur as a result of spinal subluxations. Here they are:
  • The mechanical effect, the motion or the balance of the specific area, or somewhere else on the skeleton. The effect elsewhere may be as a result of the distortions and alterations of the body, in order to compensate or correct the structurally imbalanced mechanics.

  • A localized condition’s effect, which happens in the articulation because of interarticular stress and trauma, like inflammations, necrosis, irritation, swelling and various degenerative fluctuations.

  • The neurological effects that may be brought about by the spinal subluxations include nerve pressure/stretch/torsion, meningeal irritations, cerebrospinal fluid flow alterations, circulatory changes, etc.
