Vertebral Subluxation

Vertebral subluxation is a condition where the spinal bones have improper motion or position that affects nerve communications between your brain and your body. It is a stress response where muscles spasm and spinal bones lock up while the adjacent nerves are choked or chafed.

The only way to diagnose and treat a vertebral subluxation is through chiropractic examination and chiropractic adjustment. An adjustment can reduce its effect on your nervous system naturally.

Chiropractic adjustment is an integral part of treatment at the Center for Spine Care and Mobility (CSCM). It is a powerful tool used to relieve pain, restore function, and correct movement disorders. CSCM’s approach is patient-centered, functional, and focused on reactivation.

For a diagnosis of vertebral subluxation, NYC-based CSCM starts its approach with an assessment to identify your movement signature. Starting with Janda’s upper/lower crossed syndromes, physicians then move to examining postural muscles. An adjustment to a transitional segment becomes a catalyst in the rehabilitation process to bridge the gap between a patient’s specific functional capacity and activity demands.

Treatment is divided into two phases. The acute phase includes passive treatments for the first 4 to 6 weeks. The subacute phase includes more aggressive treatments, which can start as early as week 4 and last until week 12.

Through successful chiropractic adjustments, CSCM’s physicians can help diagnose, treat, and relieve your pain. At CSCM, our integrative treatment plan revolves around our 3 principle “R”s: Reset, Reload, and Reinforce. In Reset, we perform the necessary chiropractic adjustments, we Reload the body with the Active Release Technique and soft tissue massage, and, finally, we Reinforce the treatment through physical therapy.

Our unique approach is all-encompassing; all facets of treatment can be and are done under one roof. Having our physicians, physical therapists, and massage therapists work together in one place provides not only convenience, strategy, and comfort, but also the most effective and efficient treatment plan possible.

I found my way to the Center for Spine Care + Mobility because I was looking for an integrated approach to treat injury-induced headaches. I used to go to an integrated physical therapy/chiropractic care center before I moved to New York from California, so I expected CSC+M to be a similar experience. Working with Dr. Schuman, Jinita, Denise, and Sandra and experiencing their targeted, attentive care is the reason why CSC+M surpassed all my expectations. My experience with CSC+M has not only helped eradicate my headaches but is helping me learn how to control and strengthen my body to correct bad habits and prevent further injuries. Not to mention the facilities are clean and comfortable and the entire staff is friendly and welcoming every time I come in. I would 100% recommend CSC+M to anyone looking for physical therapy or chiropractic work in general - why have just one form of treatment when you can have it all?!
