Radiculopathy is irritating
At its most basic, radiculopathy is a condition characterized by compression and/or irritation of a spinal nerve as it exits the spinal cord. Symptoms include:
- Feelings of numbness and tingling
- Weakness in the extremities
Most commonly occurring in the lumbar and cervical segments of the spine, radiculopathy often results from activities or habits that place an excessive amount of pressure on the spine. In this way, people who work physically labor-intensive jobs are the most at risk for radiculopathy. At the same time, radiculopathy can also occur in those who lead a more sedentary lifestyle, especially those work office jobs without consistently good posture.
Athletes can push further with the help of chiropractic
Athletes are a breed of people constantly seek improvement; improvement in performance begins with specialization of the body. In this endless pursuit of perfection, the athlete’s body develops the strength and flexibility necessary to excel and we believe that you can always use a helping hand. Studies show that athletes who receive regular chiropractic treatment suffer fewer injuries, recover quicker and enjoy a comparative advantage over athletes who don’t use chiropractic. How does this work?
