Pinched Nerves

con_9n14.jpg

When a nerve is squeezed or compressed it is called a "pinched nerve". This can be caused by spinal misalignments, bulging or herniated discs, or other factors. The increased pressure on the nerve causes inflammation, pain, and sometimes muscle spasms. The pressure on the nerve must be relieved in order to alleviate the pain. An examination can reveal the cause of the pain, and an adjustment can relieve the pain by properly aligning the spine and addressing the cause of the pain.

Pinched nerves occur when a nerve becomes compressed. Symptoms may include pain that affects the area around the nerve, weakness, numbness and a tingling sensation. Common causes of a pinched nerve include misalignments, herniated discs, inflammation, muscle spasms, and a possible combination of all of the above. More serious causes of pinched nerves include tumors and space-occupying lesions. If you have a pinched nerve, it is common to feel sharp pains when you rotate or twist quickly, but a pinched nerve can also cause a more dull aching pain from the resulting taught muscle.
