Subluxations, cervical or otherwise, can have a number of causes, including trauma from an automobile accident, falling, poor lifting techniques and bad posture.

Cervical subluxations can produce symptoms ranging from migraines to tingling, insomnia and changes in balance.

In essence, a vertebra that is not properly aligned with the other vertebrae creates tension on or stretches the nerves in the spinal cord and the nerves around the spine. This increases the likelihood that nerve signals will not be transmitted properly.
