Radicular pain is a condition that occurs when something goes wrong with the nerve roots in your back bone and Back Pain Chiropractic sees quite a few people from the Texarkana region who are dealing with this. These nerves deliver messages from your brain to the rest of your body and when they’re irritated it can lead to discomfort, numbness, tingling and other problems. Radicular pain can be exceedingly disruptive to your life, making it an issue to do even the simplest tasks.
There are several possible causes of radicular issues, that include herniated discs, spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. Herniated discs are a common cause of radicular pain and occur when the soft inner material of the disc protrudes out through a gap in the outer casing. This puts force on the adjacent nerve roots and cause issues. Spinal stenosis is a condition that occurs when the spaces within your spine become slimmer, which can also lead to pressure on the nerve roots. Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which one vertebra gets out of place and onto the bone below it, which can also create pressure on the nerve roots.
Radicular pain can be caused by trauma like a auto injury or can result from aging and degeneration. As we get older, our discs and vertebrae have reduced flexibility and that can result in nerve problems.
