Radicular pain is an issue that develops when something goes wrong with the nerve roots in your vertebrae and Back Pain Chiropractic treats several people from the Texarkana area who are dealing with this. These nerves send messages from your brain to the rest of your body and when they’re injured it can lead to discomfort, numbness, tingling and other problems. Radicular pain can be tremendously troublesome to your life, making it difficult to do even the easiest tasks.
There are a lot of likely causes of radicular pain, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. Herniated discs are a recurrent cause of radicular pain and develop when the soft inner material of the disc protrudes out through a gap in the outer casing. This can put pressure on the neighboring nerve roots and cause pain. Spinal stenosis is a condition that develops when the spaces within your spinal column 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 beneath it, which can also cause pressure on the nerve roots.
Radicular pain can be caused by an injury like a car crash or can result from aging and degeneration. As we age, our discs and spinal column have reduced flexibility and that can result in nerve problems.
