Nerves pinched by bones are relatively rare, but they can become irritated easily by inflammation, abnormal function or loading of the spinal vertebra and muscle tensions.

Irritation and compression of nerves can result in pain, muscle weakness, pins and needles, numbness and burning sensations.

Your family osteopath is highly trained to diagnose the exact location of the nerve irritation and once this has been found, can effectively treat to reduce the tension and irritation gently, safely and effectively.
