5 Causes of Subluxations in Eugene OR

There are many, many causes of subluxations in Eugene OR (misalignments in the vertebrae) that can inhibit optimal health. While they are not avoidable, it helps to recognize these causes so that treatment can be sought when they occur.


Here are five common causes of subluxations and what you can do to feel better in Eugene OR

  1. Sleeping 'Wrong' — We've all experienced this, waking up in the morning with a crick in the neck, a sore back, or even a stiff shoulder, all from sleeping 'wrong.' All it takes is keeping your body in an awkward position for a period to make the subluxation happen. When we're asleep, we don't know this is happening until it's too late.
  2. Desk Work — Our bodies are not meant to be stationary for long periods of time and this holds especially true with desk work. If you have a desk job, chances are your body suffers from frequent subluxations which might be further compounded if you also have posture issues.
  3. Long Car Rides — No matter what the manufacturers say, there's no such thing as a comfortable car seat, especially if you have to sit in it for long periods of time either with a commute or long-distance travel. If you're unable to make frequent stops to get out and stretch, this can be problematic for your alignment.
  4. Mowing the Lawn — Pushing and pulling a mower can cause significant trauma to your back and the connective muscles and tissues, especially if you have a large yard, steep terrain, or excessive grass growth to deal with.
  5. Carrying a Purse — Purses have become catch-all containers for all things we deem necessary for our day-to-day comings and goings. Whether your purse is carrying your wallet and makeup or more substantial items like a laptop or books, the extra weight carried on one side of your body is enough to wreak havoc on your back. Do this every day, and the damage adds up.
