It is a foregone medical conclusion that the spine is the root cause of all musculoskeletal issues of the human body. This structure which houses the most elaborate wiring system known to man, must remain in proper alignment to do its job. When the spine is in misalignment it can cause the nerves to be compromised. This will result in preventing the nerves from sending messages from the brain to vital organs and systems throughout the body. Signs of a pinched nerve are as follow:
- Numbness of feet and/or hands
- Tingling or burning in the neck, back, arms, shoulder, legs, hands, or feet
Chiropractic care addresses the alignment problem thus freeing up the nerves. Being freed, the nerves can now send messages to the brain.
