Verbal subluxation occurs when the spinal segment is not moving properly. This happens because of how the brain perceives and responds to the sensory information that is coming from the brain.
What happens when the bones in your spine are not moving properly?

These muscles are actually the eyes of the brain because of their movement sensors.
What happens is the brain is not able to see what the spine is doing?
