What is a "Healthy Spine"?
The above image shows a subluxation to the left and a contrasting healthy spine on the right. The subluxation is creating pressure on the discs between the vertebrae which cushion your spine for everyday movements and most importantly, controlled falling (a.k.a. walking). By adding this pressure, not only do the discs weaken over time and prevent your spine from optimum health, but vital nerves (which connect to your major organs) may have additional unnecessary pressure as well.
To learn more about Spinal Subluxation, please visit our "contact us" page and complete the questionnaire. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will gladly call you to set up a complimentary consultation with Dr. Price.
