Vertebral dysfunction is an umbrella term meaning the misalignment and improper movement of spinal bones. Those particular places in the body where the misalignment or improper movement occur are called vertebral subluxations.
sub = less than | luxation = dislocation
Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. These nerve impulses travel through your spine. As a result, having a spine free of vertebral subluxations is essential for optimal health. Chiropractors are best equipped to identify vertebral subluxations and reduce their effect to your nervous system.
