Spinal Misalignment Signs and Symptoms

Share

Most individuals go about their lives without thinking about poor posture and spinal misalignment, not to mention the spinal health problems/conditions that are associated with misaligned vertebrae. Most spinal misalignments come on as a result of:

  • Poor posture habits
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Destructive lifestyle choices
  • Sudden misalignments caused by accident/s or injury/s

Sudden misalignments can be associated with a direct cause that an individual can recognize increased symptoms and injury. It’s the long-term spinal misalignment that can become dangerous if left untreated and out of alignment. This is when it is time to see a chiropractor for an immediate spinal realignment.

Body Posture Mechanics

Poor posture along with poor body mechanics contributes to spinal misalignment. This creates unnecessary and consistent pressure on the:

  • Muscles
  • Ligaments
  • Joints
  • Discs

The pressure also causes a stretching of the nerves in the neck and low back. These nerves are responsible for transmitting, muscle expansion/contraction signals, vital information, and energy to the body’s organs. Any nerve interference will diminish the energy/blood flow to the limbs and organs. This can lead to disease and other major health complications like:

  • Chronic pain
  • Decreased mobility
  • Joint stiffness
  • Slouched posture
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Discomfort when sitting, standing, and lying down
  • Permanent joint/bone deformity/s
  • Broken bones, specifically in the spine

Most individuals do not recognize the gradual or long-term health problems linked to the spinal misalignment. Often the signs and symptoms are very subtle, so do not raise a cause for concern. The most direct symptoms of poor posture and spinal misalignment include:

  • Sore/stiff neck or back
  • Low energy
  • Tiredness/fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Back muscle spasms
  • Joint pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Altered sensations

In addition to the symptoms, individuals should realize that underlying health conditions could also be linked to poor posture and spinal misalignment. If any of these symptoms are presenting see a chiropractor for an examination and proper diagnosis. These symptoms can be masked with pain killers, mattresses, or caffeinated drinks. However, these will not realign the spine to its proper form.
