18″ X 24″ laminated poster.
This poster shows the five components of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex: Joint Dysfunction, Muscle Dysfunction, Inflammation, Nerve Irritation and Degeneration. This visual will help your patients understand that no matter which component they start with the other components will follow and it is chiropractic care that will help them. How many times have you heard a patient say “I have a pulled muscle, arthritis, a pinched nerve or inflammation and therefore I don’t need a chiropractor”? People think chiropractors only treat a “bone out of place”. A Vicious Cycle shows your patient a “pulled muscle” leads to joint dysfunction and inflammation which then leads to arthritis and nerve irritation. Arthritis leads to joint dysfunction and nerve irritation which leads to muscle dysfunction and inflammation. It does not matter which of the five components you start with they all lead to joint dysfunction which can only be reduced with your chiropractic care. The “life” in the middle with arrows pointing out to the five components lets people know it is the activities or in-activities of day to day life that causes the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Worry, anxiety, fear micro and major traumas which are all a part of daily life leads to the Vertebral Subluxation Complex and the need for regular chiropractic care.
