Pinched Nerve – AcuHealth Chiropractic Columbus Ohio.
A pinched nerve can cause severe pain. It can also cause pain to radiate or travel to the shoulders, hands, legs or feet depending on where the nerve is compromised along the spine and how severely it is pinched.
There are many causes for this problem such as spinal misalignment, a bulging disc, arthritis, bone spurs, or even cancer in rare cases.
The only way to find out what is causing your pinched nerve is to consult with a doctor who specializes in the treatment of these types of conditions.
A chiropractor is a good place to start. We offer conservative care without the possible side effects of drugs or surgery. Of course if your condition requires a referral to a medical specialist, Dr. Mike can make an appropriate recommendation.
Two of the most common reasons for a pinched nerve are:
- The first is when the spinal bones become misaligned and cause the disc to shift out of place and causes pressure on the nerve.
- The second reason we will demonstrate is arthritis in the spine. It can cause a reduction in the spacing that a nerve needs to travel from the spinal cord to the muscles and organs that they control..
