Radicular pain, or radiating pain, is caused by interference or pinching of the spinal nerves. This results in pain, tingling, or numbness in parts of your body far from the actual source of the problem. It's a common problem that we see in our St. Petersburg, FL chiropractic practice, especially in people who may have been in a car crash.
If your spine is injured, there are a number of things that may affect the nerves:
The key to treating radicular pain is to pinpoint the actual source of the problem causing the impingement and then work to relieve the pressure on the nerve. Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell is trained to work with these types of injuries and we may help our patients recover normal function.
If you've been injured in a crash and you live in St. Petersburg, FL, Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell might be able to help you. Call our office today at (727) 637-2957 to see how we can help.
