When you envision yourself enjoying true health, pinched nerves are not part of the picture. A compressed nerve (often called a pinched nerve) causes pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in your leg or arm. For some, the symptoms are debilitating.
When your nerves are leaving your spinal column, there is very little protection for them. That means that if a ligament, disc, or bone spur come close to the nerve...well, that means pain! The pain may start at the spinal column, but it can then travel the entire length of that nerve root, which results in pain radiating to your legs and arms. Nerve pain is not something to mess around with!
NATURAL PAIN RELIEF FOR PINCHED NERVES
Fortunately, much of that pain can be relieved by taking pressure off the nerves. Studies show that chiropractic treatments can help reduce the compression or pinching on those sensitive nerve roots. Less pressure on the nerve means less pain and more relief!
Your nerves are the communication center of your body, and they "talk" to every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. Ligament overgrowth, disc issues, and bone spurs can all put pressure on your nerves. Regular chiropractic adjustments greatly open the canals of your spine, which decreases the pressure on the nerves, leaving you feeling and functioning better!
Try to do some "people watching" today. Notice that a large number of people walk crooked or are bent towards one side. This can be a result of a pinched nerve. The bent posture is an attempt to lean way from the pain and open the nerve channels. You can avoid the crooked posture with exercise, staying active, and regular chiropractic adjustments!
