About Misalignments

Progression of Misalignment in the Spine

Left ignored, unchecked & neglected can lead to permanent damage

deg1
Range of Motion & Strength May or May Not Be Affected

  • Curve change
  • Misalignment
  • Joint compression
  • Soft tissue stress
  • Nerve irritation
deg2
Range of Motion: Limited (Mild) | Strength: Limited (Mild)
  • Properties of phase¬† I +plus
  • Cartilage Wear, Nerve Compression
  • Discs Thinning, Bones & Muscle Changes

Range of Motion: Limited (Moderate) | Strength: Limited (Moderate)

  • Properties of phase I & II
  • Heavy joint damage, loss of cartilage, disc(s) very thin, bone disfigurement, soft tissue scarring, nerve(s) scarring & nerve openings reduced (stenosis)
  • Somewhat limited recover

Range of Motion: Limited (Severe) | Strength: Limited (Severe)

  • Properties of phase I, II, III
  • Mostly irreversible damage
  • Very limited recovery & relief
  • Most care is strictly to help with pain relief

What Causes Misalignments?

Childhood development, everyday activity, injuries, sleeping habits, work habits, stress. Unmaintained spines!

The Effect to Your Body:

Inability to perform certain activities, loss of energy, fatigue, stiffness, loss of movement, weakness, altered posture, height loss, chronic pain, loss of balance, trouble standing/sitting/walking, decreased immunity. Decreased quality of life.

* Please Note: Pain doesn’t always show itself… Don’t wait until it does.


Stages of Recovery

scarTissue

Stage 1: Still some discomfort. Most important time to “stick with it.”

  • Body is transitioning from protection mode (bracing itself) to allowing movement
  • Muscle fibers are still tight and linked together.
  • We are breaking up adhesions and trying to get body segments to move.

realign
State 2: Noticeable improvement in range of motion ease of muscles.

  • Injury (wheather severe or minor) is in its healing process.
  • Muscle fibers have become loosened, and bones are beginning to move into place.

Stage 3: Bones are moving into proper location, but not permanently “set”. Commitment is very important because quitting now could cause regression.

Stage 4: Getting the correction to hold in place. Body structure has just corrected. Continuing commitment will ensure stabilization, and that body will not regress. Muscle fibers are becoming stronger and more flexible, with bongs in correct alignment

Stage 5: Continued improvement (Typically 1 visit per month)
