Radicular pain, radiating pain, or shooting pain is caused by irritation of spinal nerves. This irritation can cause numbness, tingling, burning or shooting pain sensations that travel in the arms or legs. Radicular symptoms are common problems that we see in our Bellingham, WA chiropractic office, particularly in those people who have been involved in a car accident.
Spinal injuries can irritate nerves in a number of ways:
Proper diagnoses and localizing the exact anatomical structure causing radicular symptoms. Once the site is established, relieving stress, irritation or even compression of a nerve may relieve the radicular symptoms. Dr. Jeffrey J. Albright is trained to diagnose and successfully treat these types of injuries.
If you've been injured in an car injury, Dr. Jeffrey J. Albright might be able to help you as he has thousands of others. Call our office today at (360) 746-8378 to schedule your car injury radicular symptom consultation.
