Basic science and clinical models of the vertebral subluxation are reviewed. Neurobiological mechanisms associated with these models are described. Models reviewed include the subluxation complex model, subluxation degeneration, nerve compression, dysafferentation, the neurodystrophic model and segmental facilitation. Clinical models, including the segmental, postural, and tonal approaches are discussed.
