How Chiropractic Relieves Muscle Spasm Pain
What are Pinched Nerves and Muscle Spasms?
A muscle spasm can occur when nerve compression irritates a peripheral nerve. Peripheral nerves are millions of nerve bundles that leave the spinal cord and branch out to other parts of the body. When a peripheral nerve is pinched from spinal misalignments, the flow is blocked and the membrane loses the ability to transmit electric messages properly. Symptoms of a pinched nerve include:
- Muscle spasms
- Electric sensations
- Hot/cold sensations
