One of the diagnoses that we see most frequently at Yeronga Chiropractic is what’s commonly known as a pinched nerve. Up and down the spinal cord, you have nerves extending out to the other parts of your body. These nerves carry important signals/information from point A to point B and are vital in governing the flow and function of the body.
It is important to explain that the feeling of nerve pain isn’t always because the nerve is actually pinched; it can be irritated through inflammation, stretch, or overstimulation too. But for ease of typing, “pinched” will do.
A pinched nerve can drastically impact your quality of life. If you play sports or live an active lifestyle, it can limit your mobility and range of motion. If you play the guitar or some other instrument, it can reduce the dexterity of your hands and limit your effectiveness as a musician. No matter who you are or what you do, it can lead to excessive pain and discomfort.
