This is a common belief for many people. Your spine is designed in a special way. Any abnormal spinal function can be easily caused from physical trauma, chemical toxins, or even emotional stress of your daily life. These affect the tissues of the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Many people associate a pinched nerve with the spine, when in fact it is actually rare. Research has shown that about 10% of spinal problems are caused by direct pressure of bone on nerve tissue. Pinched nerves symptoms for many includes a burning or a numb feeling along the nerve path.
More often, nerves are irritated not pinched, although the symptoms may be similar. Irritation is a result of a scraped, rubbed, or stretched nerve tissue or a malfunction of spinal bones, so the treatment varies for this type of medical condition.
People often ask us what are the slipped disk symptoms? Technically, a disc can’t “slip”. Between the spinal bones lays a disc of cartilage-type material. Each disc serves as a connector, spacer and shock absorber for the spine. The center consists of a jellylike center with surrounding tissue. Healthy discs allow normal bending and turning of the spine.
Because each disc is intricately attached to the vertebrae above and below, a disc cannot “slip”. However, trauma or injury to the spine can cause discs to tear, bulge, herniate, or even rupture. This is very painful. The jellylike center can leak, putting pressure on the adjacent nerve and spinal cord. Many patients avoid needless surgery or dependency on pain pills, even though results are not guaranteed. Patients do benefit from choosing chiropractic care for their spine-related problems.
