Pinched Nerves Discussed by Lansdale Chiropractors

What is a pinched nerve, and do I have one? That is a common question for many people with neck pain, back pain, and referral pain. The nerves in the body each have a specific area that they are responsible for, and when these nerves are pressured, or "pinched". the nerve can alter different flow to the muscles and cause pain.The nerve has three main components which can be altered when "pinched", including sensory, motor, and autonomic reflexes. When the sensory component is pressured, it can cause pain, tingling, or loss of sensation. The motor component can lead to loss of strength, or muscle atrophy, where as the autonomic reflex, or knee jerk reflex, would affect the normal reflex reaction of the affected nerve region.
Chiropractic is very effective in resolving pain from a pinched nerve, but early detection is very important.
