NEUROPATHOPHYSIOLOGY
(Abnormal nervous system function)

Because of the way your spine is designed, abnormal spinal function can rub, pinch, irritate, or choke the delicate tissues of the spinal cord and nerve roots.

While commonly associated with spinal problems, the pinched nerve (compressive lesion) is actually quite rare. Researchers suggest that only 10% to 15% of spinal-related problems are caused by direct pressure of bone on nerve tissue!

Sometimes, this problem can result in numbness, burning, or a "pins and needles" feeling.

More frequently, nerves are irritated (facilitative lesion) by improperly functioning spinal structures. This is caused when nerve tissue is stretched, twisted, or irritated by malfunctioning spinal bones.

Nervous system impairment can affect the tissues, organs, and systems of the body, increasing the susceptibility of disease and ill health.

Muscles that support the spine are affected too...
