15 Warning Signs of an Unhealthy Spine

  1. The heels of your shoes wear out unevenly. This can be due to uneven leg length or stress along the length of the spine.
  2. You can’t take a satisfying deep breath. Breath, health, spinal health and energy are interrelated.
  3. Your jaw "clicks". This can be caused by neck or hip subluxations.
  4. You have to "crack" your neck, back or other joints a lot. This can be caused by areas of your spine being locked, or jammed.
  5. You can’t twist or turn your head or hips to either side easily and equally. This is called reduced range of motion.
  6. You are often fatigued. An unbalanced spine drains your energy.
  7. You suffer from poor concentration. Subluxations affect brain health by interfering with healthy neural pathways.
  8. You have low resistance to disease. Subluxations affect your neuroendocrine system, which plays an important role in your ability to fight infection.
  9. Your foot flares out when you walk. Look at your feet as you walk, don’t cheat, do they point forward, or does one foot appear to flare outward or inward? Do both? This could be a sign of a problem in the lower spine or hips, or stress in the upper neck, or base of the brain.
  10. One leg appears shorter than the other leg.
  11. You have poor posture.
  12. You have headaches, back aches, sore or tender spots in muscles or joints.
  13. You have a constant stressful feeling and tension in muscles and joints.
  14. You feel stiffness in your back and neck.
  15. You just don’t feel well, and have poor health in general. Subluxations can affect your overall health.
