Category one occurs due to subluxated or misalignment of sacro- iliac joint. This misalignment leads to titling the sacrum and rotation of the hip. Titling of sacrum eases the ability of pumping making cerobro- spinal fluid to circulate ineffectively. This inefficiency leads to increase in toxin in the nervous system and lack of nutrients. Category one indicators arise due to the reduction in functioning of nerve system and might affect numerous organs and tissues in the body.
The other assessment procedure is done by diagnosing category two. This category occurs due to stretching of sacro-iliac joint leading to separation of joint surfaces. This disrupts the spine right up position, nervous system and body balance.
There is a disc which is located between the spinal vertebrae and their main function is spacers between bones and shock absorption. In case the body is working ineffectively the spaces they lead to alteration of the discs, which might irritate the nerves.
In correction of category one misalignment, chiropractor is supposed to use two blocks which he or she
