Pinched Nerve

Dr.Reilly a Chippewa Falls Chiropractor describes a

pinched nerve

as follows. A pinched nerve is a very generalized term, however the simple description of it is a nerve that is having pressure placed on it.

This can happen in a multitude of different areas such as the low back and pelvis typically referred to as Sciatica. Sciatica is a description of a specific nerve that is being pinched; that nerve is called the Sciatic Nerve. The Sciatic Nerve is a combination of all of the nerves that come from the Low Back and then travel through the pelvis down the leg. This is why when someone gets Sciatica they typically have pain going down the leg and usually into the foot. A pinched nerve only happens about (10%) ten percent of the time when someone has Low Back Pain, more commonly is something known as Segmental Dysfunction or a Subluxation.

When a pinched nerve happens in the neck and upper back or mid back it is typically referred to as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome or TOS. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a description of a specific area of nerves that are being pinched; that area of nerves is called the Thoracic Outlet. If a nerve gets pinched on its way out of the neck and becomes a pinched nerve it is typically referred to as generally a PINCHED NERVE. The Neck Nerves are similar to the low back in that they all combine together to make up a plexus of nerves that then pass through the Thoracic Outletand then travel through the shoulder down the arm. This is why when someone gets Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Arm Pain, Numbness, and Tinling they typically have a pinched nerve.
