Chiropractic Helps Relieve Radicular Pain After Car Crashes

State College Chiropractic Care Treats Radicular Pain After Auto Injury

A car collision can cause radicular pain, which is discomfort that radiates out from the site of the injury. The discomfort may be caused by several reasons, including injury to the spinal ligaments, a bulging disc, or swelling of the spine.

The anatomy of radicular pain can be convoluted, but usually, it begins by pressure on the nerves that run along your spine. Your spinal nerves are what allows your brain to communicate with your body, so it's important to make sure those pathways are working properly.

Radiating pain can disrupt a person's life in several ways. The pain may make it hard to sleep, to concentrate, or to participate in everyday activities. Occasionally, the issue may be so severe that the person is unable to work or even leave the house.

Research Shows That Chiropractic Adjustments Can Help in State College

Chiropractic Adjustments has been shown to be an effective treatment for radicular pain. By restoring the normal function of the spine, chiropractic treatment can help to ease the pressure on the nerves that is causing radicular pain.

Chiropractic helps by gently adjusting the spine to better alignment and lighten pressure on the nerves. This allows the body to heal naturally and can provide relief from radicular discomfort.
