Eighty five percent of the population will experience disabling lower back pain at least once during their lifetime. One out of five people in the United States is currently suffering from an episode of back pain lasting greater than two weeks.
The cervical spinal nerves lie in small openings between your vertebrae. These nerves can become irritated, inflamed, compressed or “pinched” if your structural system is even slightly distorted or out of its optimal alignment. Cervical spinal nerve irritation can cause headaches, neck pain, face pain, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand pain, and numbness of the upper extremities (arms to hands). The most common cause of nerve pressure is a subluxation. The doctors at ChiroBalance Spine & Sport can detect subluxations and reduce nerve interference.
