  Title The vertebral subluxation complex. Part II: The neuropathological and myopathological components
Journal CRJ. 1990 ;1(4):19-38
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

The concept of subluxation has been a corner­ stone of the theory and practice of chiropractic since itsfounding by D. D. Palmer in 1895. It is one of the most controversial concepts in health care today, and finds its supporters and critics both within and outside the chiropractic profession.    The original concept of the subluxation was that of a slightly mis­ aligned vertebra, not sufficient to be qualified as a true luxation or dislocation but substantial enough to impinge on the segmental nerves associated with it. While this original concept requires some modifica­ tion in light of current research findings, there has been a wealth of knowledge accumulated in the past two decades that supports the concept of vertebral subluxation as a real entity. It must be stressed that, from the contemporary, scientific chiropractic point of view, the subluxation is a dynamic process involv­ ing several tissue levels and integrative components.
