Radiating Pain After Auto Injury in Beaverton, OR
Radicular pain, or radiating pain, is created by interference or pinching of the spinal nerves. This will cause pain, tingling, or numbness in parts of your body far from the actual source of the problem.
If your spine is injured during a car crash, there are a range of things that can affect the nerves.
Damaged ligaments and muscular tissues can cause inflammation of the nerve root, which can affect the function of the nerve. If a spinal disc is weakened, it can cause the disc to protrude or herniate, compressing the nerve. And if the vertebral joints start to calcify, it can trigger spinal stenosis, or a narrowing of the channel that the spinal nerves travel through.
The answer to treating radicular pain is to isolate the exact origin of the condition causing the restriction and then work to ease the load on the nerve.
