Do You Have VSC?

Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) is a serious health condition in many people that develops from the cumulative effects of physical, chemical and/or emotional stress. These stresses overload and “short circuit” the nerve system by causing the vertebrae (bones of the spine) to subluxate (misalign) interfering with the delicate nerves that exit the spine. These nerves are responsible for sending vital messages that control and coordinate every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body.

Wouldn´t I feel it if I had VSC?

Not necessarily. In many cases VSC is not felt until the problem progresses and serious damage has already occurred.

What happens if VSC is not corrected?

If VSC is not corrected, spinal decay begins and becomes more severe. It will become permanent and more difficult to correct the longer VSC is neglected. The quality and length of your life will decline as this condition worsens.

How common is VSC?

Although a common problem, VSC is not normal. Most people get their first VSC during the birth process, even when the delivery is normal and only standard procedures are used. According to Abraham Towbin, M.D. from Harvard Medical School, “spinal cord and brainstem injuries often occur and frequently escape diagnosis.”

How is VSC treated?

Since VSC are misalignments of the spine affecting the nerves, the only way to correct them is to realign the spine through chiropractic adjustments. Consequently, if your condition/symptoms are caused or aggravated by VSC, the underlying cause (VSC) will need corrected for true healing to take place. There is no alternative.

Many people spend years covering up the resultant symptoms with drugs without ever knowing or fixing the cause. They need stronger and stronger medications as time goes on, to cover the worsening symptoms as the underlying condition progresses.

Should I be checked for VSC?

In many people, physical stress (poor posture, falls, sports, accidents, improper lifting, etc.), chemical stress (smoking, caffeine, medications, alcohol, food additives/supplements, etc.) and emotional stress (work, family, finances, loss of a loved one, etc.) may cause a serious, progressive health condition called Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC).
