Pinched or Trapped Nerve- Shoulder /arm pain or sciatica causing leg pain and numbness
Some say pain is a state of mind; however it only makes sense that it is your body’s way of communicating to you and indicating that some part of your body is badly affected. Pain is a warning sign that something is wrong!
Our backbone is a remarkable structure connecting our entire body system. It is made up of individual vertebrae (small bone sections) where nerve trunks branch from between these separate vertebrae. You do not have to be involved in an accident or any trauma to experience a “pinched nerve”. Your basic everyday routine can even slip or slightly turn an individual or several vertebrae from its normal position. This displacement in your spinal column can change the size and shape of the nerve trunk openings causing pressure or an obstruction. This is what is commonly known as a “pinched nerve”.
A doctor of chiropractic is trained to discover these displacements in your backbone. A chiropractor’s educated fingers can discover this and reveal the source of irritation causing the “pinched nerve”.
