Nerve Impingement Syndrome (NIS) or a Subluxation, occurs when a misalignment of one or more of the joints in the spine places pressure on a nerve. Nerves communicate from the brain through the spinal cord and nervous system. Pressure on the nerves can cause interference with the transmitted signal. This can cause pain and/or discomfort indicating a loss of full Body Function.

In addition to pain, other symptoms of Nerve Impingement Syndrome may include:  Headaches, Fatigue & Sleep Disturbances, Sinus & Allergy Issues, Arthritis, Mood Swings and Digestive Problems.


The misalignment of a joint called Nerve Impingement Syndrome or a Subluxation can develop for a variety of reasons including an accident trauma, poor posture or diet, lack of or incorrect exercise, a sports or repetitive motion injury, relationship or financial stress. It is the Subluxation that creates the Nerve Impingement Syndrome that prevents you from enjoying all of life pleasures.



Chiropractic care can be the key to detecting the cause of your problem. If detected early enough, ProAdjuster Chiropractic adjustments can often return the joint to its normal position, releasing the pressure on the nerve and eliminating the Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

Nerve Impingement Syndrome Facts:

    • 80% of all childbirths result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

    • 40% of all children fall on their heads by age 1, according to OSHA; this can result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

    • Between the ages of 2 and 5 years old, children fall over 200 times; this can be a major cause of Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

    • Within 2 years of receiving a drivers license, 70% of all teens are involved in an auto accident. Car accidents often result in Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

    • Because there are so many causes, everyone at some time will suffer from NIS. In many cases, the symptoms do not appear for months or even years.

    • When the body detects a problem, over time it compensates for it. This compensation causes PAIN. If left untreated, this condition could lead to the
      destruction of the joint and irreversible damage to the nerve - causing chronic pain or worse.
