Next, you’ll meet with Dr. Simpson, your introduction, initial consultation, and examination is private, confidential and the environment is warm and supportive as we get to know each other.

How much do you know about Subluxations?
Maybe you’ve never heard of subluxations. That’s OK, There probably was a time you’d never heard of AID’s or Alzheimer’s.
You have more than 200 bones in your body. Whenever two bones come together at a joint, there can be movement. Since joints in your spine are so close to your spinal chord and nerve roots, too much or to little joint motion can have serious effects.
Like the separate notes of a musical chord, a subluxation can simultaneously involve joints, nerves, muscles, soft tissue and degenerative changes.
If spinal bones get ‘stuck,” and don’t move right, they can irritate or chafe delicate nerves. If a joint movs too much, spinal bones can press adjacent nerve tissue. This can interfere with the vital “life force” transmitted over your nervous system that helps keep your brain in touch with your body. The result is the vertebral subluxation complex, or more simply, a subluxation.
More than bones and nerves are involved. Muscles can become too tight or too weak. Discs, ligaments and other connective tissues can become inflamed. Bone spurs and arthritic degeneration can set in.
