Vertebral Chart Information
Most of us received our first Vertebral Subluxation during the birthing process, the twisting and pulling through the birthing canal creates a C1 subluxation. If left untreated, subluxation will worsen to the point of Vertebral Subluxation Degeneration.
- Phase I is slightly more severe, as damage has been done to the soft tissue and misalignment has occurred. With regular chiropractic care, near normal spinal correction may be obtained.
- Phase II physiologically is quite degenerated, with disc narrowing, bone spurs, and nerve irritation. Fusing of vertebral bones is a possibility at this stage and should be checked and care started immediately by a Chiropractor to slow the process and begin the improvement of the degeneration.
- Phase III is when joints have immobilized, bone has fusion, and extensive scar tissue has formed. With the correct chiropractic care, there is a good chance that the process of degeneration may be slowed or stopped.
- Phase IV is complete fusion of vertebrae. With continual chiropractic care, further effects can be prevented or stopped.
