Many patients contact Washington Chiropractic, in Washington, IL concerned about the possibility of a pinched nerve.
Because of the intricate way your spine was designed, abnormal spinal function from physical trauma, emotional tensions, or chemical toxins can affect the delicate tissues of the spinal cord and nerve roots.
While commonly associated with the spine, the pinched nerve (compressive lesion) is actually rare. Researches suggest that only 10% to 15% of spine related problems are caused by direct pressure of bone on nerve tissue! This can result in numbness, burning or a "pins and needles" feeling. More frequently, nerves are irritated (facilitative lesion). This is caused when nerve tissue is rubbed, scraped, stretched by a loss of spinal curve, or irritated by malfunctioning spinal joints.
Dr. Jose Delgado is helping people in Washington, IL and surrounding areas, determine if they are suffering from pinched nerves and developing the proper treatment programs, to relieve their pain and discomfort.
