The Phases of the Chiropractic Treatment

Subluxation: 
It is a dysfunction of a joint that prevents proper motion of that joint 
   and often effects the biomechanics of the whole region.
Movement of that area is usually very diminished (can also be too 
   mobile). 
Subluxations are one of the most important contributing factors of     
   musculo-skeletal problems (and other conditions) 
It therefore becomes very important to treat these dysfunctions to 
   allow the body to heal itself.
