Nerve Impingement Syndrome also known as a “pinched nerve” is a condition where nerves become irritated and nerve impulses in the spine are reduced by as much as 60% due mostly to what is called a Subluxation. A Subluxation is a misalignment of a joint that can be a result of accident trauma, poor posture, lack of incorrect exercise, sports, or repetitive motion injuries, relationship, or financial stress. These misalignments cause inflammation and put pressure on the delicate spinal nerves that extend to the arms and legs. The spinal nerves supply every cell, tissue and organ with vital information from the brain.
Some important and often debilitating signs and symptoms of nerve impingement syndrome and stress are headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, sinus and allergy issues, irritability/mood swings, pain anywhere in the body and digestive problems.
Some things you should know.
80% of all childbirths result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome
40% of all children fall on their heads by age one, according to OSHA; this can result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome
Between the ages of two and five years old, children fall over 200 times; this can be a major cause of Nerve Impingement Syndrome
With in two years of receiving a drivers license, 70% of all teens are involved in an auto accident. Car accidents often result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome.
Because there are so many causes of Nerve Impingement Syndrome, almost everyone as some time or another will suffer from it. In most cases, the symptoms do not occur for months or even years.
When the body detects a problem, it will compensate for it over time. This compensation causes PAIN. If left untreated, this condition could cause destruction of the joint and irreversible damage to the nerve, causing chronic pain or worse.
If you think yourself, a loved one, or a friend is suffering needlessly from Nerve Impingement Syndrome please give us a call immediately.
