But there’s a lot more going on!
Nerve compression occurs when a ligament, tendon or bone pushes against a nerve ending causing inflammation. This compression or pinching of the nerve is at the root of many back and neck pain complaints.
Pinched nerves are often noticed along the spine when a misaligned disc compromises the space around a nerve. Numbing, debilitating pain can result from a compressed nerve.
A careful analysis of your spine will help your chiropractor determine where your bones are experiencing misalignment. The application of precise pressure during an adjustment will allow your body to correct itself and minimize the pain experienced from nerve compression.
