What Is Subluxation?
When it comes to pain, disease, or other debilitating conditions, only your body's natural healing ability can properly cure or prevent these issues. When your central nervous system is blocked by obstacles, your body is unable to heal and prevent disease and other ailments. When your nervous system can properly function, your body's natural healing ability is able to properly heal and fight off disease. Normally, these interferences are caused by a condition called Subluxation.
Subluxation is the term used by Doctors of Chiropractic to describe the misalignment of bones, resulting in nerve pressure or irritation. Subluxations of the vertebrae of the spine are by far the most common type. Even the slightest misalignment can produce pressure and irritation upon nerves, effecting improper communication of vital nerve impulses to organs, cells, and tissues of the body. The greater the misalignment, the greater the possibility of its affecting a nerve, resulting in discomfort, pain, and often disabling illness.Researchers have discovered that nerve fibers play a significant role in immune system response in the human body. When these nerves are blocked and unable to communicate properly, your immune system can be virtually stopped in its tracks. To be put more bluntly, if you stop nerve flow, you stop health.
Our Chiropractic Treatments Eliminate Symptoms of SubluxationIf you’ve been experiencing pain, headaches, numbness or other nagging health problems that keep you from feeling at your best, or if you’re simply interested in maintaining your health, Chiropractic care can provide natural relief from Subluxation that harmful drugs and surgeries cannot provide. In all cases, our primary objective at Bartell Chiropractic Life Center is the location and correction of vertebral Subluxation, and the removal of all interference of proper nerve function caused by abnormal position of the spine. This is done through a very specific rehabilitative program of spinal adjustments, postural re-positioning and exercises that are unique to each individual.
Any of several specific, highly advanced techniques may be used to accomplish the goal of correcting each Subluxation so that proper function can be restored to the affected nerves. To achieve these adjustments and corrections, we use the latest technology in specialized instruments and tools that are safe and proven, with minimal discomfort.

A 360 Approach To Natural Health
At our office, your Chiropractic program will be personalized to your unique needs and condition. Your treatment progression will consist of 3 general phases.
1. Relief Care
During the beginning stages of your chiropractic treatment at our office, our main goal will be to identify the symptoms and reduce your pain and discomfort. Depending on your condition and level of discomfort, it will require frequent visits to establish a good healing pattern, and make sure your body maintains steady improvement.
2. Corrective Care
Once your initial pain and discomfort is reduced, now begins the stages of corrective care. Typically, your treatment sessions will be spaced out more, but of-course this all depends on your needs and condition. The goal is to continue to identify and target your trouble areas, and provide the necessary corrective adjustments. Dr. Bartell will also recommend exercises, stretching, and nutritional plans to follow on your own time, which will help greatly with accelerating your healing and overall health.
3. Ongoing Wellness Care
Once your body can fully heal itself, it's important to maintain these improvements to sustain your new found health! Continuing routine chiropractic care is important, just like exercising and following a healthy diet to maintain a healthy weight.

For growing children, as the body changes it's important to keep the spine aligned to ensure proper functionality as the body and mind grows. For adults and seniors, there are a number of environmental stress factors that impact the spine and nervous system over time, problems that can be treated and prevented through chiropractic care.
