At CLEAR Life Scoliosis Reduction & Chiropractic, we are specialists in spinal ligament injuries.  We measure spinal instability utilizing up-to-date evidence-based subluxation identification and management due to spinal injuries. After a spinal instability assessment is completed and a thorough clinical assessment is conducted, Dr. Justin, our specialist in spinal instability, develops a treatment plan that encompasses corrective chiropractic care. 

In the simplest terms, a personal injury is when one person – the victim – suffers harm due to another person’s actions. Injuries can be physical harm, mental distress, or in the form of a financial hardship.

Did You Know?


  • Productivity is being destroyed and chronic pain is crippling our Country. ·      

  • An estimated $635 billion per year in the United States for 11 million adults who are affected with chronic pain. ·      

  • Spinal ligament injuries are the number one cause of chronic pain. ·      

  • “Excessive use or even complete dependent on the MRI has focused too much attention on the intervertebral disc and vertebrae to the exclusion of the ligaments and facet joint capsule.”  There are much more serious injuries that the MRI was never designed to identify.

What is an Injury?

All injuries of the body are derangements (a disturbance of normal bodily functioning or operation) of the body part itself.  The more deranged the body part, the more injured the body part (s).  Some injuries can permanently alter the body and when this happens, we say that the injury has caused permanent impairment.

Doctors treating an injured patient must be able to accurately and objectively assess and diagnose the full extent of their patient’s injuries.  Without this, patients may get poor recovery results. If the spine is injured, its parts must be deranged.  There are only three types of of spine injuries:  

  1. Fracture

  2. Spinal Instability

  3. Disc Herniation

How Does the Spine Work?

Each function, organ and system of the human body is under the direct control of the nervous system.  The brain controls everything in the body.  It sends signals to every part of the body.  These signals travel down from the brain, through the brainstem and spinal cord, then out through the peripheral nerves to every part of the body.  Some of these nerves go back up to the head.  Sometimes the bones of the spine, which are designed to protect these delicate nerve structures, can become misaligned and get stuck.  This is known as subluxation. 

A subluxation can pinch, stretch, or otherwise irritate the peripheral nerves as well as potentially cause abnormal tension on the brain stem and spinal cord.  This, in turn, causes abnormal function of the nerves in these structures and may lead to a wide variety of neurological symptoms and pain.

The spine is made up of bone and ligaments.  There are over 100 intricate joints that connect all these bones together and those joints are connected by over 220 ligaments.  Only 23 of these ligaments are discs, therefore most of these pain-sensitive spinal ligaments are non-disc spinal ligaments.  

The spinal ligaments’ main job is to keep the spinal parts perfectly arranged so that the other systems and their parts in and around the spine are not compromised, irritated, or unable to perform in any way.  When the spine ligaments are injured, the spine may be compromised, and cervical instability may occur.

What Happens When There is Cervical Instability?

Spinal ligaments, when damaged, are the leading cause of chronic pain and disability today.  Ligamentous injury results in excessive movement in the spine which in turn may cause spinal instability.  Spinal instability occurs when the spinal motion is mal positioned (dislocated), deformed (fractured) or excessively move in such a way as to cause pain or neurological dysfunction.
