Pinched nerves can affect New Yorkers of any age and activity level. Pinched nerves are caused by vertebral subluxations, which take place when vertebrae become herniated and misaligned, placing excessive pressure on discs and nerves. When nerves are under stress, the interference caused by the extreme pressure results in pain, spinal imbalances, and various ailments within the body. Pain from a pinched nerve can be so debilitating as to cause temporary or permanent paralysis of the affected area.
Pinched nerves are caused by trauma to the body, which can come about due to poor posture, prolonged periods of inactivity in one position, excessive body weight, pregnancy, sports injuries, accidents, and more.
A pinched nerve may not be detected until the patient feels pain, which is usually the last symptom to appear. Regular spinal maintenance can detect and correct subluxations as well as prevent future spinal injury and pain.

One of the main reasons people suffer with low back pain and Sciatica is a “Pinched Nerve” in the low back. Pinched nerves are usually the result of a herniated or bulging disc in the lumbar spine at L5-S1.
When a nerve has pressure on it your body will let you know, in fact a study conducted on nerve pressure revealed that the weight of a postage stamp cut nerve signal down by 50%.
The Sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and allot of structures can put pressure on this sensitive nerve a partial list of things that can cause irritation to the Sciatic nerve include bulging or herniated discs, spinal stenosis, disc degeneration and sometimes even muscles.
One common muscle that affects the Sciatic nerve is the Piriformis muscles it is a triangular shaped muscle in your buttocks region and when this muscle shortens or tightens it can produce a condition called “Piriformis syndrome” symptoms can include low back pain, numbness and or tingling down into the buttocks or legs, muscle stiffness and or spasms that get worse with time.
