Chiropractic Therapy Effective for Disc Herniation Problems After Car Crashes

Lincoln Chiropractic Care Effective for Disc Herniation & Radicular Pain After Auto Injury

Radicular problems is a concern that happens when something fails with the nerve roots in the spinal column and Dr. Jerrad Swanson DC, FMT, DN1 treats a lot of clients from the Lincoln community who are suffering with this. These nerves send messages from your brain to the rest of your body and when they’re injured it can lead to discomfort, numbness, tingling and other problems. Radicular pain can be especially troublesome to your life, making it an issue to do even the easiest tasks.

There are quite a few possible causes of radicular issues, which are herniated discs, spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. Herniated discs are a recurrent cause of radicular pain and result when the soft inner material of the disc protrudes out through a fracture in the outer casing. This can put force on the nearby nerve roots and cause discomfort. Spinal stenosis is a condition that results when the spaces within your vertebrae are more slender, which can also lead to pressure on the nerve roots. Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which one vertebra moves out of place and onto the bone below it, which can also cause pressure on the nerve roots.

Radicular pain can be caused by trauma like a auto injury or can develop from aging and degeneration. As we get older, our discs and spine have reduced flexibility and that can result in nerve problems.
