    What is a chiropractor referring to when he or she states that ones alignement is off?

    you might have muscles on one side of your body cramped up and pulling tighter so you are kinda off alignment.

    also the bones (at the joints) might actually be off alignment.

    i knew this lady whose hips were off alignment. the chiropractor basically did some knuckle cracking, got them realigned and in a couple weeks she was better.

    it takes a couple weeks because when the alignment is off your body and muscles get used to your body being like that and adjust. when the alignment is put back on, your body and muscles take a couple weeks to readjust again.

    Your head is on your neck vertabre; your neck vertabre is on the vertabre below it and so forth. Your lower back vertabre is between your hips; your hips are on legs, and your legs are on your feet. This is you proper alignment. If your alignment is off, your hips could be tulted so that they rest more heavily on one leg than the other; one of your vertebra could be twisted sideways, or your back could lean to one side when you try to stand up straight.
    When your alignment is off, not everything is in it's proper place.

    I understand what you both say, but if a vertebrae was truly "out of alignment," you would have some very serious problems.  There are natural assymetries that occur throughout the body and it just sounds that stating ones "alignment is off" is a gross exeggeration.  Wouldn't it be more accurate to states ones mobility or flexibility is abnormal?
