For a nerve to become "pinched" and to alter its ability to transmit normal messages it only requires the pressure of 10mm of mercury. This is a very small amount of pressure that can dramatically affect your nerves and how you feel and function. This pinching most commonly occurs at the spine where the spinal nerves exit the vertebra.
Dr. Clint Dickason D.C. can properly evaluate your condition if you believe you have a pinched nerve and determine if you are a candidate for safe, conservative Chiropractic care. He will perform a through orthopedic, neurological and palpatory examination to see if you have a pinched nerve that is caused by a subluxation.
