Spinal nerve compression is caused by any condition that puts pressure on your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is the bundle of nerves that carries messages back and forth from your brain to your muscles and other soft tissues. The Spinal cord travels through the Spine, the nerves of your spinal cord run through the openings of the spinal bones and out to your muscles.
One of the most common causes of spinal nerve compression is the gradual wear and tear on the bones of the spine, known as osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis happens when the cartilage and other tissues within the joint break down or have a change in their structure. This does not happen because of simple wear and tear on the joints. Instead, changes in the tissue can trigger the breakdown, which usually happens gradually over time.
Symptoms vary depending on which type of nerve compression you have. The symptoms may affect different areas of your back, arms, and legs, and can include:
Chiropractic care is a very effective treatment for pinched nerve because it addresses the root cause and works toward fixing the problem through spinal manipulation and very specific chiropractic adjustments.
