Well, a few new studies add more insight:

1 - As a disc degenerates it becomes more heavily supplied with nerves. Nerves are sensitive. The more nerves, the more pain we’ll experience. (1)

2 - A pinched nerve, or as a new research report terms a compressed dorsal root ganglion, can lead to actual death of the nerve. (2)

3 - Nerve irritation in the spine can lead to weak muscles, muscle tremors, and urinary incontinence. (3) See your Georgetown chiropractor for an examination if you suffer from these conditions. He or she may have help for you.

Can you see how necessary nerves are? Why disc degeneration is such an issue for so many Georgetown chiropractic patients? When a disc degenerates, the nerves are irritated. Your Georgetown chiropractor knows these nerves and has the tools to help soothe them.
