No. In our clinic, we only use the medical definition of “subluxation”, meaning partial dislocation. The chiropractic term “subluxation” doesn’t even carry an agreed-upon definition among the chiropractic profession. There is no current, consistent, agreed-upon research demonstrating the existence of chiropractic subluxations or the idea that these entities can impinge upon spinal nerves and cause disease/illness throughout the human body (including visceral/organ pathology). Our clinic is an evidence-based practice, meaning that we take the best available research and apply this directly to our management of patients and training clients. We feel that we owe it to our patients to give them the best of what we have in conservative neuromusculoskeletal care.
