A patient came into Staten Island Chiropractor Dr. Victor Dolan’s office in Staten Island today with a severe limp and told me he had pain starting at his hip running all the way down to his foot. He said it was his big toe that really hurt.
So I told him I would take a look at his back. He looked at me and said, “But the pain is in my foot!” I explained what was probably causing his pain is what is commonly called a pinched nerve. If you are feeling pain in your upper, mid or lower back, a disc in your spine has probably become inflamed and swollen and is narrowing the area near the vertebrae that make up your spine through which your nerves pass.
The disc is mostly likely inflamed because it has slipped out of alignment or has become herniated. The so-called “pinched nerve” is really one or more nerves under relatively slight pressure. But the resultant pain often does not feel slight at all. As you will see in today’s video, trauma and misalignment of the spine can cause severe pain in parts of your body far from the original source of the pain–such as your fingers, your head or your legs—even your toes.
