Spinal misalignment (also referred to as vertebral subluxations) might consist of irregular mobility or even a seismic shifting of the vertebrae. Optimal Health & Wellness Center would like to remind patients and prospective patients that, when spinal misalignments occur, there are often a wide range of symptoms, some of which you might not even be aware of! Diseases of the spine can present themselves in a variety of forms, ranging from pain, lack of mobility, increased inflammation, herniated discs, and also muscle spasms. There are a number of additional symptoms that can arise from spine misalignment.
So, what exactly causes vertebral subluxations in patients in the first place?
Spine misalignment can be caused by a number of factors, including:
- General Inactivity
- Previous or Current Injury
- Increased Stress
- Bad Posture
- Bad Lifting Techniques
- Repetitive Motions at Work
- Sleeping in the Wrong Position
- Growth Irregularities
- Poor Diet
It's always best to try to sleep on your sides -- and make sure to keep both legs angled slightly upwards, towards your chest, and be sure to separate your knees and ankles, preferably with a pillow.
If you find yourself experiencing subluxation or any other sort of coming from your back, neck, or leg, make sure you contact Optimal Health & Wellness Center today. We have a long, reliable track record of getting our valued patients back to active!
