Stay healthy

When you are not experiencing pain or discomfort it does not mean that you are "subluxation free". Pain is only a symptom of the disease process. Subluxations are similar to tooth cavities in that many times a significant amount of damage is present before symptoms such as pain are felt. This is why we recommend that individuals seek periodic spinal evaluations and maintenance therapy to check for the presence of subluxations and other spinal abnormalities, even in the absence of pain.
