Nerve Injury

Dr. Jimenez Nerve Injury Chiropractic Therapeutic Team. Nerves are fragile and can be damaged by pressure, stretching, or cutting. Injury to a nerve can stop signals to and from the brain, causing muscles not to work properly and losing feeling in the injured area.

The nervous system manages a great majority of the body’s functions, from regulating an individual’s breathing to controlling their muscles as well as sensing heat and cold. But, when trauma from an injury or an underlying condition causes nerve injury, an individual’s quality of life may be greatly affected.

Dr. Alex Jimenez explains various concepts through his collection of archives revolving around the types of injuries and conditions that can cause nerve complications and discuss the different forms of treatments and solutions to ease nerve pain and restore the individual’s quality of life.
