The complicated structure of the spine is composed of separate bones that are integrated. The primary function of these bones is to protect the spinal cord while enabling free movements of the individual. There is a soft and flexible disc cushioning between each vertebrae bone which separates them. Problems begin when the discs and develop fissures due to loss of water content and become inflexible. This increases the chances of their improper functioning and dislodging.

The spine also has several nerves which move along its length. These nerves serve as connectors or messengers between the brain and the spinal cord. These spinal nerves are very delicate and sensitive, so when protruding or damaged disc pinch them, it causes severe pain in the back and legs.

Pinched nerves may result from damage or injury to a set of nerves or a nerve. The condition occurs when the surrounding tissues, like muscles, bones or tendons exert too much pressure on the nerve(s). This extra pressure disrupts the nerves function which causes pain, numbing or tingling.

Causes

Pinched nerves can occur at different sites in the body. It can also be a result of various spinal conditions. For instance, the herniated disc in the lower spine may exert pressure on the root of the nerve, leading to radiating pain in the back of the leg.

Similarly, a pinched wrist nerve can cause numbness, pain or a tingling sensation in the hands and fingers. Other conditions that can lead to pinched nerves are injury or trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, repetitive physical tasks, sports activities, and obesity.

The subluxation of the upper cervical region can cause pinched nerve symptoms. For instance, the misalignment in the C1 vertebrae can affect the function of the entire spine. The misalignment of spinal bone, as well as soft tissues due to the misalignment of the atlas, can also exert pressure on the nerves disrupting the body balance.

Symptoms

The most common symptoms of pinched nerves are numbness, tingling or needle-like sensations, sharp pain or burning ache radiating outward, muscles weakness in the affected area and a constant feeling of numbness in the feet or hands.

Our Treatment

Our NUCCA correction is especially effective for the problems in the upper cervical region. The procedure involves taking the digital X-rays to identify the precise subluxation position and its severity. Gentle yet highly effective NUCCA correction slightly moves the Atlas back to its natural balance. This enables the soft tissues and spinal bones to restore to their neutral balanced position. Thus, relieving pressure on the pinched nerves and ultimately relieving associated symptoms.

Our expert Dr. Packer is an expert at treating pinched nerves. Our state-of-the-art non-invasive NUCCA based treatment plan ensures complete and fast recovery and helps you return to your routine and normal functioning, quickly and efficiently.

We focus on NUCCA and Spinal Biomechanical Engineering.
