Subluxation Treatment in Studio City

Subluxation refers to the misalignment or partial dislocation of joints throughout the body. This condition can lead to nerve compression, affecting the body’s natural functions and causing health issues. At Back to Wellness in Studio City, our multidisciplinary approach to subluxation treatment ensures a holistic path to recovery for our patients.

Understanding Subluxation in a Broader Context

Subluxation disrupts normal movement or positioning of a joint, which can result in nerve irritation and impaired function. This disturbance can lead to discomfort, pain, and decreased mobility, significantly impacting the body’s overall health and wellness.

Different Types of Subluxation

Subluxations can occur in several areas of the body, each with its unique implications for an individual’s health and well-being. Understanding these types can help in identifying the most effective treatment approaches:

  • Spinal Subluxation: Misalignments in the spine that can cause back pain, neck pain, and headaches, affecting overall nervous system function.
  • Shoulder Subluxation: Partial dislocation of the shoulder joint, leading to pain and reduced range of motion. This type of subluxation is common in athletes and individuals who engage in repetitive overhead activities.
  • Hip Subluxation: A less common but significant misalignment of the hip joint that can affect walking patterns and lead to chronic pain and instability.
  • Rib Subluxation: Often overlooked, rib subluxation can cause sharp pain, especially with deep breaths or movements, and can mimic other conditions like heart problems.
  • Extremity Subluxation: This includes subluxations in the knees, elbows, wrists, and ankles, which can result from injuries, repetitive strain, or congenital conditions.

Signs and Symptoms of Subluxation

Recognizing these symptoms is crucial for timely intervention and treatment. Here are some common signs and symptoms associated with subluxation:

  • Pain and Discomfort: One of the most immediate signs of subluxation is localized pain or discomfort in the area of the misalignment. This pain can vary in intensity and may be sharp, dull, or throbbing.
  • Reduced Mobility: Subluxation can lead to a decrease in the range of motion in the affected joint or area of the spine, making it difficult to perform everyday movements and activities.
  • Muscle Spasms and Tension: The body’s response to subluxation often includes muscle spasms or increased muscle tension around the affected area, which can further contribute to discomfort and limited mobility.
  • Numbness or Tingling: Compression or irritation of nerves can result in sensations of numbness or tingling, often radiating from the site of the misalignment to the extremities.
  • Postural Changes: Subluxation can lead to noticeable changes in posture, as the body compensates for the misalignment. This may include leaning to one side, uneven shoulder heights, or a visible curvature in the spine.
  • Headaches: Frequent headaches, including tension headaches and migraines, can be a symptom of cervical (neck) subluxation, as misalignments in this area can affect nerve pathways and blood flow.
  • Fatigue: Chronic subluxation can lead to fatigue or general malaise, as the body expends additional energy in dealing with pain and dysfunction.
  • Decreased Overall Function: Over time, untreated subluxation can impact the body’s overall function, potentially affecting organ systems and leading to a decline in general health.

It’s important to note that symptoms vary widely among individuals and may not always be immediately attributed to subluxation.
