Bulging discs and disc herniations are surprisingly common issue and it is often, but not always, very painful. Many people who have this condition may feel nothing at all, until they do!

The quality and intensity of the pain completely depends on the type and location of the herniation or bulging disc.

Subluxation is a medical term used to describe a pinched nerve in the spine, either in the neck, mid back or in the low back or hips. This is caused by a misalignment anywhere in the vertebral column.
A subluxation can cause a variety of symptoms, ranging from back pain, to neck pain, numbness and tingling anywhere in the body, to headaches. Every part of the human body is directly controlled by the nerves that come from your spine, so the symptoms you may or may not yet be experiencing can often be traced back to the spine.
There are a number of causes of Vertebral Subluxations, including physical stress (slips, falls, accidents, poor posture, improper lifting, too much time sitting, or even too much time on your cell phone). Another cause can be emotional stress, tension, anxiety, worry or fear. Subluxations are often quite painful and can disrupt normal movement and functioning of your body.
