Understanding the causes of subluxation is essential for addressing this condition effectively.

This Subluxation may be caused due to:

1. Physical stress. Such as a fall, accident, injury or a repetitive problem, such as sitting a certain way or your posture.

This Subluxation can result in migraines, headaches, vertigo, neck pain or other neurological problems.
