Subluxation has been defined medically as a partial abnormal separation of the articular surfaces of a joint.
The most common symptom associated with sciatica is pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, from the lower back and down one leg; however, symptoms can vary widely depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected. Some may experience a mild tingling, a dull ache, or even a burning sensation, typically on one side of the body. Some patients also report pins-and-needles sensation, most often in the toes or foot and numbness or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot.
Symptoms from a disc herniation can be excrutiating, but one of the most effective ways to care for this type of injury is by seing a chiropractor.
Chiropractic therapy is extremely helpful in treating pinched nerves. Pinched nerves usually are caused by either a bony impingement - meaning there might be a joint that is pressing on the nerve - or in many cases, by a bulging disc, herniated disc, or tight muscles. Chiropractic treatment can relieve pressure from the nerve and offer remarkable relief from pinched nerve pain.
While there are varying kinds of headaches, most people end up relying on a protocol of prescription medicine or drugs as their standard of care. Being adjusted by a chiropractor is an effective way of naturally caring for the root cause of headache symptoms by removing interference from the nervous system.
