A pinched nerve is actually an irritated or inflamed nerve where the nerve itself is not actually pinched. In most all cases, nerves become inflamed and irritated when the bones, joints or muscles of the spine are not in their proper position, or are not moving properly. This condition is called a “subluxation. The treatment is done by a Doctor of chiropractic.
