Mechanism of Vertebral Subluxation Trauma misaligns the vertebra, shifting it into a sustained position The shifting vertebral body compresses the disc and exerts pressure on the nucleus and then The annular fibers are stretched past their elastic limit by the bulging or shifted nucleus, resultingm in deranged or damaged fibers.
