Warning Signs Your Body Is Out of Alignment

How Can You Tell That Your Body Is Not in Alignment?

You may think back pain is the only sign your body is out of alignment. There are many other clues that your spine is out of adjustment. 

“When your spine is out of alignment, it has a profound impact on the functioning of the rest of your body,” warns Dr. Jeremiah Carlson of Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture. Chiropractic doctors refer to spinal misalignments as subluxations. 

Fortunately, chiropractic spinal manipulations correct misalignments without the use of drugs or surgery. There is no downtime either.

Here Are Warning Signs that Your Body Is Not in Alignment:

  • Frequent illnesses like the flu and colds

  • Your overall health is poor.

  • Constant fatigue

  • Back pain

  • Numbness in the hands or feet. This is frequently caused by pinched nerves.

  • Joint pain

  • Headaches

  • You “release pressure” by cracking your neck, back, and other body joints like the knees and ankles because they are stiff or uncomfortable.

You can check your posture by standing in front of a mirror. First, look frontally. Are your shoulders level, or is one higher than the other? There should be a straight line from the tip of your nose down to your belly button.

Next, turn and view your body from the side. Your ear should be aligned with that bony part of your shoulder and the large bump on the outside part of your hip.

How do you walk? Do you notice one of your feet faces out more than the other? Do both feet face out?

Examine the soles of your shoes. Are they both evenly worn? Is the sole of one shoe more worn out than the other? This may indicate that you don’t bear your weight evenly on both feet. That is a strong sign your spine is out of alignment.

What Is the Treatment for Spinal Subluxations?


When your spine is not properly aligned, the consequences are felt throughout your body. Treatment is important to prevent severe or long-term damage and complications.

Your chiropractic care provider like Dr. Carlson will do a spinal manipulation. During a spinal manipulation, joints are adjusted until the spine is restored to proper positioning. This corrects the misalignment and reduces inflammation. Exercises and more treatments may be recommended to return the body to wellness. 

If you are experiencing any of the warning signs that your body is out of alignment, take steps today to correct the problem. Contact Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture for an evaluation by our experienced chiropractic doctors.
