Chiropractors often refer to a “pinched nerve” as a vertebral subluxation, spinal misalignment or nerve irritation. This is due to a spinal bone that may be out of place resulting in a restriction or irritation in the space that the nerve runs through. Your spinal column has 24 different moving bones that allow you to twist and turn, while also having the ability to bend. Having a pinched nerve can be one of the most agonizing things to experience.
Bones are stationary, unless moved by surrounding muscles, and the muscles commonly do not move unless directed by the nervous system. When nerves that branch off from your spine to all parts of your body are stretched or twisted, they can cause numerous interferences and relentless pain. This disruption can impair your brain’s ability to transmit signals and cause an alteration in your body’s ability to care for the rest of your organs.
Receiving chiropractic care helps identify exactly where the spinal column is out of place and specific gentle manipulative procedures may help reduce the tension and ease the pain. Nerve irritation may disappear in only one visit, however, many outside factors affect how long it takes. For example: How long have you had the irritation? Have you had any injuries, traumas or multiple falls, etc? Do you have arthritis, disc irritations or any other spinal issues? Are you in good health otherwise?
Taking care of yourself physically, nutritionally and emotionally, as well as seeking the help of Chiropractic, can facilitate your experience of pain relief you deeply desire.
My back is a lot better
"I have suffered back strain on and off since December 2006. Picking up something or my weight caused it and I could not go to work so it was pretty severe. I saw another chiropractor on and off and got some good results but it didn't last. I found Dr. Rosenfeld on the internet and through my husband's insurance. My back is a lot better and now we are working on neck pain and stress in my upper shoulders from work and day to day activities. Massage has helped as well."
