Do You Have a Pain in the Neck? Tingling? Numbness?

Written by Dr. Elliot Lysyk, DC

When small nerves in your neck get pinched, pain can run into your shoulders, down your arms, and into your hands if the pinch is bad enough.

On x-ray, we can see the little holes between the spinal bones, and sometimes they appear much smaller in certain places. This is usually where the nerves can get trapped. This pressure on the nerves can also lead to pins and needles in certain areas in your arms or hands depending on which nerve is affected. It can also cause arm and hand weakness.

Misalignments in the vertebrae can affect nerves that feed “down-stream.” Picture your spine as a circuit board that relays nerve information from your brain to your body and back.

Our success with conditions like neck pain, and pain that radiates, stems from our goal of balancing your spine alignment and reducing the nerve tension pattern in the body.

The philosophy is really quite simple, and the results can change your life!
