Vertebral subluxations are changes in the position or motion of a vertebra, which result in the interference with nerve function. This paper describes possible neurobiological mechanism associated with vertebral subluxations. These mechanisms include dysafferentation, dyskinesia, dysponesis, dysautonomia, neuroplasticity and ephaptic transmission.
