Subluxation & Chiropractic Wellness El Paso, Texas

Share

Subluxation describes what happens when the spinal joints get shifted out of alignment. This can be caused by:

  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Chemical imbalance

The nervous system, which consists of the (spine/nerves/brain) is the central headquarters of the body. Subluxation removal helps the body function at its optimum level.

Chiropractic adjustments reduce pressure on the nerves and ease the flow of communication and signals going back and forth.

These adjustments trigger the release of endorphins, which cause instant pain relief.

Our hips are made durable, but with age and normal wear and tear, this cartilage wears down, which can lead to injury.

This also includes the:

  • Muscles
  • Tendons
  • Bones in and around the hip

And can be caused by a number of conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis (osteonecrosis)
  • Cancers
  • Bursitis
  • Hip fractures
  • Hip labral tear
  • Muscle/tendon strain
  • Tendinitis

If adjustments seem to be only temporary, this could be an indicator of problems beyond the spine.

Pain or other symptoms in the body start with the body’s foundation: the feet.

When we walk there are incremental-segmental movements of the spine that are small motions but are very important in proper function.

If there are foot problems:

  • Spinal subluxations
  • Pain
  • Degeneration throughout the body can happen.

Research has found that poor foot mechanics can create severe problems that affect the normal functions of the:

  • Ankle
  • Knee
  • Hip
  • Back

Symptoms of Vertebral Subluxation

  • Neck and back pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Balance issues
  • Spine muscle spasms
  • Tightness
  • Weakness
  • Spinal mobility
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Joint pain
  • Tenderness
  • Stiffness

Treatment

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, subluxation could be the cause.

Chiropractic treatment and custom orthotics are the best way to correct the subluxation.

Chiropractors are experienced in finding and correcting these problems. And the custom orthotics can help keep you and your spine in perfect alignment.


Low Back Pain No Longer with *FOOT LEVELERS ORTHOTICS* | El Paso, TX (2019)

Approximately 80 percent of the population will experience some type of back pain sometime throughout their lifetime. Low back pain and sciatica are several of the most common complaints frequently reported in a doctor office setting. But, did you know that low back pain and sciatica can be caused due to foot problems? Custom-made functional foot orthotics can help support and promote the natural alignment of the spine. Poor posture associated with foot problems and other health issues can be corrected through the utilization of custom-made functional foot orthotics. Because every individual has unique foot anatomy, custom-made foot orthotics can be beneficial for a variety of people with foot problems and other health issues. Dr. Alex Jimenez is the non-surgical choice for foot problems.


What’s Afoot

Although many people try to treat their low back pain on their own first, one of the fastest and best ways to treat it is through custom orthotics, which actually optimize the performance of your entire body, not just your feet and lower back. Over-the-counter orthotics do not provide proper support and can even cause more damage to the body. Chronic lower back pain is not a normal thing that has to do with age or lifestyle.

If you are experiencing lower back pain, call a chiropractor and ask about how custom orthotics can help you.

Chiropractors use specific methods to return the vertebrae in their proper locations or muster them to allow them to go freely when subluxations happen. These techniques are called spinal manipulations or adjustments. During an adjustment, the vertebra is freed in the misaligned location and returned to the right place in the spinal column. The adjustment permits the entire body to cure and preserve homeostasis once performed.
