Over 90% of all subluxations are painless! That is why they are often called the “Silent Killer”.

We have learned that subluxations are disturbances or interferences in your nervous system. We have also learned that subluxations have devastating effects on your health and well-being. But what most people don’t realize is that most subluxations go unnoticed for years because most subluxations are painless!

Answer these questions for me:
Have you ever known someone who had cancer, and didn’t know it?
Have you ever known someone who had heart disease, and didn’t know it?
Have you ever known someone who had diabetes, and didn’t know it?
Have you ever known someone who had high blood pressure, and didn’t know it?

Well, guess what? People can have subluxations and not know it.

In a 1993 study, researcher M. Hause published his study revealing that pressure to the nerve root (the nerve root is located between two vertebrae) can exist without pain.
More importantly, he stated that this pressure can influence the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is the part of your nervous system that regulates the function of your organs, blood vessels, and glands.

Researchers have also discovered that subluxations often occur during the normal birthing process and often go undiagnosed for years and even decades.
Dr. G. Gutman discovered that more than 80% of the infants that he examined shortly after birth were suffering from injuries to the neck that resulted in all types of health problems such as nose, throat, and ear infections. Dr. Towbin, Harvard Medical School’s department of pathology found that “the birth process, even under optimal conditions, is potentially a traumatic, crippling event. Spinal cord and brain stem injuries occur often during the birth process, but frequently escape diagnosis.”

Undetected subluxations are an epidemic health challenge in our society and need to be taken very seriously because of the consequences. Every man, woman, and child should be checked for nerve interference on a regular basis by a Wellness Chiropractor- it’s that important- it’s that simple!
