What Is SUBLUXATION?

A DISEASE OCCURING WORLDWIDE IN EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS

Normal

Vertebrae are smooth and healthy with no subluxations present.

This allows equal spacing of the discs and proper curvature of the spine.

The openings allow the nerves to flow without interference.

Phase I

Subluxations and spinal degeneration usually begin with a vertebra out of alignment.

When a vertebra is subluxated it can't move properly and causes undue stress to the surrounding discs and nerves. Some subluxations are minor and may not show up until years later.

Phase II

Untreated subluxations can cause calcium deposits and bone spurs.

The surfaces of the subluxated vertebrae become rough and uneven and can cause the compressed discs to lose fluid and lose their cushion. The nerves also become irritated and problems can become chronic.

Phase III

The degenerative process accelerates and causes a loss of bone mass.

The disc start to collapse, the fusion process begins and health problems may become more severe.

Phase IV

This is the final stage of degeneration. Bones are fused together becoming permanently subluxated and joints are immobilized.

Nerve damage and soft tissue damage are part of the degeneration process.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "29 months ago I was in a head on collision at 70 mph on K10. I had to be estracted from the vehicle by multiple cuts through the framing of the vehicle by the Lawrence and Wakarusa Fire Departments. I was in intensive care for 4 days and a regular room for 4 days. i saw multiple doctors, osteopaths, and surgeons, none of which helped in anyway. I spent 3 months 3-4 times a week coming to Dr. Risley and it was truely the only thing that helped and saved me."

  • "I came to Dr. Risley with on and off shoulder and rib pain that made the things I loved to do - run and boat - difficult and painful. His combination of chiropractic care and acupuncture really helped. Now I am mostly pain free and feel so much better! My runs are longer and I'm out on my boat every chance I get. Dr. Risley and his staff are great. Thank You!"
