A pinched nerve refers to a condition in which a nerve is compressed by surrounding tissue, such as ligament, cartilage, tendon or bone. Nerves radiate from your brain, down your spine, and to all other parts of the body. Signals are sent to and from the brain along the nerves, and if a nerve is compressed (pinched), it will interfere with proper signal transmission. Usually, this will display as pain, not only at the site of compression, but sometimes radiating from that point to surrounding parts of the body. Dr.Christopher Cordima at The Advanced Pain Relief Clinic specializes in nerve health and non-invasive methods of reducing pain and restoring proper function, including spinal adjustments and other treatments that take the pressure off the nerves without the need for drugs or surgery. If you or someone you care about is suffering from a pinched nerve, you should know that there is an alternative to taking drugs and getting surgery. Chiropractic care has proven effective in treating the source of the problem so it is less likely to recur in the future.
