The Body is Fantastically and Wondrously Made
Did you know that your body has a fantastic communication system within itself? The central nerves of your body is your central communication system and the foundation of this systems runs the length of the inner spine.
This communication system extends from your brain to the lower end of your spinal column. This system sends messages out to every part of your body. When a vertebra or disc malfunctions, it places pressure on a portion of these nerves. When you have a nerve with pressure on it, you are going to feel pain.
Do You Really Want Back Surgery if There is Another Option?
This pinched nerve and all of its pain is not the issue, as you would think. Your problem stems from something going array within your spinal column. While the traditional doctor can recognize you having a pinched nerve, after viewing your back x-ray, the doctor will treat your discomfort with pain medication. He, most likely, tells you to just give it time and rest. If the pain does not go away in a few days the doctor may recommend back surgery. Back surgery is painful in itself, and causes you loss of wages, time of from all activities at home and at work. Wise is the doctor, if he refers you to the services of a chiropractor before he refers you to a surgeon.
An alternative practice found in the services that a chiropractor offers looks at your spine through x-rays first, and exams your spine. Thirdly, this doctor manipulates your vertebra. Manipulation often decreases pain and discomfort or eliminates the pain altogether. On rare occasions, you may have a more serious condition that requires you to seek the help of a specialist surgeon. If this were the case, the chiropractor who does the referral, works with the surgeon in the best interest of your outcome.
A pinched nerve can be a minor complication, or it can present severe pain and discomfort that interferes with walking, standing, sitting, and lying. A pinched nerve in the spine offers no comfort no matter what position you try to partake to ease your discomfort.
Sometimes the pain from a pinched nerve causes a referred or radiating pain in another part of your body, meaning your pain may not be in the back where the pressure on the nerve exists, but in the neck, arm, shoulder, or leg. However, if the pressed nerve is in the area of the neck, you may have referred pain to the hand, wrist, elbow, or fingers.
