Nerve Impingement Syndrome (NIS), or a Subluxation, occurs when a misalignment of one or more of the joints in the spine places pressure on a nerve. Nerves communicate from the brain through the spinal cord and nervous system. Pressure on the nerves can cause interference with the transmitted signal. This can cause pain and/or discomfort, as well as other symptoms.
In addition to pain, other symptoms of Nerve Impingement Syndrome Include:
- Sleep Disturbances Sinus and Allergy Issues
- Mood Swings
- Digestive Problems
Are you among the thousands that are suffering needlessly because of a lack of understanding of your symptoms? If so, would not you like to relieve these symptoms and return to a happier, healthier lifestyle?
Cause… The misalignment of a joint is called Nerve Impingement Syndrome or a Subluxation. This can develop for a variety of reasons, including an accident trauma, poor posture or diet, lack of or incorrect exercise, a sports or repetitive motion injury, relationship or financial stress. It is the Subluxation that creates the Nerve Impingement Syndrome that prevents you from enjoying all of life pleasures.
Nerve Impingement Syndrome Facts:
- 80% of all childbirths result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome.
- 40% of all children fall on their heads by age 1, according to OSHA; this can result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome.
- Between the ages of 2 and 5 years old, children fall over 200 times; this can be a major cause of Nerve Impingement Syndrome.
- Within 2 years of receiving a drivers license, 70% of all teens are involved in an auto accident. Car accidents often result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome.
- Because there are so many causes of Nerve Impingement Syndrome, everyone at some time or another will suffer from NIS. In many cases, the symptoms do not appear for months or even years.
- When the body detects a problem, over time it compensates for it. This compensation causes PAIN. If left untreated, this condition could lead to the destruction of the joint and irreversible damage to the nerve, causing chronic pain, or worse.
Your Nervous System
Chiropractic care can be the key to detecting the cause of your problem. If detected early enough, Chiropractic adjustments can often return the joint to its normal position, releasing the pressure on the nerve and eliminating the Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

Many people learned the importance of proper nervous system function as they watched the story of actor Christopher Reeves unfold. He played Superman in the movies. A horseback riding accident damaged his spinal cord in a very dramatic way and the consequences were profound.
There is also a basic simple fact, that if one can grasp and remember, will make true sense on a very basic, instinctive level. This is called innate intelligence? the wisdom that our bodies know what is right. Breaking down the complexity of spinal anatomy, neurology and physiology into a simple, usable and reproducible idea would go something like this: The brain controls and regulates every system, organ, cell and tissue in the body through the nerves.
The nerves are our wiring system with hundreds of thousands of nerves running throughout the body. They transmit chemicals and electrical impulses to tell the body how to function. If they can do this without interruption from outside influences, then the body would have the ability to function at a near perfect state, which we can call health. If the nervous system is assaulted or interfered with however, it will either not be able to send a signal at all or only send a partial signal to its final destination. This might be a muscle, an adrenal gland, the stomach or another organ or tissue. The nervous system can be assaulted through obvious ways like direct and severe trauma as was the case with Christopher Reeves or, less obviously, through poor posture, sports, minor falls or simply bumping your head.
