Our daily activities will always lend the spine in a compressed position. When the spine is compressed for a prolonged period, the opportunity of subluxation (joint misalignment) will be increase. When the joints are subluxated, the surrounding nerve root will be compressed and eventually causes pain. Other than that the increased pressure of the joints will also increase the chance of getting bone spur.
There are many factors causes spinal subluxation includes sports injuries, poor postures, and degeneration. In recent years, there has been more and more young generations who has subluxation due to prolonged bad postures with the use of electronic products such as tablets, smart phones.
The most common cause of spinal subluxation are due to poor postures. Bad postures such as head leaning forward (anterior head carriage) while using computer, TVs, movies which will causes muscle imbalances. This can eventually leading to subluxation of the spine, and which may also cause neurological abnormalities.
Physiotherapists have received professional training to correct spinal misalignment. Physiotherapists will use his hand or activator toward a specific direction and position to push the spine. Under normal circumstances patient will not feel pain after spinal adjustment.
Also after the adjustment of the spine the patient may or may not be able to hear the popping sound due to the release of gas from the joint. The most important is the movement of the joints but not the popping sound.
