What is Subluxation?

There are more than 200 bones in the body.  Wherever two bones come together at a joint, there is movement.  Since joints in the spine are very close to the spinal cord and nerve roots, too much or too little joint motion can have serious effects on overall health.

When spinal bones get “stuck” and don’t move properly, they can cause irritation on nerves. If a joint moves too much, spinal bones can be forced into nerve tissue.  This misalignment is called a subluxation.  Subluxations cause interference in the communication between the brain and the rest of the body.  Distorted communication within the nervous system cause all kinds of health problems beyond just headaches and back pain.

Chiropractors are health care professionals that are dedicated to the detection, reduction and prevention of spinal subluxations.


Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Dr. Steve Ronco

Dr. Steve Ronco is a Wellness Doctor & Family Chiropractor located in the Torrey Hills Marketplace in Carmel Valley San Diego.  Dr. Ronco is committed to providing a level of care that nurtures and supports the true nature of health.  This involves ‘caring’ for each person’s individual needs as well as providing the education necessary to foster an environment of prevention.  In addition to working with adults, athletes and typical injuries, he holds a strong belief that taking care of children starting early on in their developmental years, provides the best opportunity to prevent minor issues from contributing to a lifetime of discomfort.   Dr. Ronco continues to provide free lectures in his office weekly (Wednesday evenings) and strives to maintain an active level of community involvement: most notably when he and several colleagues created the original Chiropractic Relief Crew (C.R.C.) during the San Diego firestorms of 2003, volunteering their services to hundreds of firefighters on a daily basis.
