Nerve interference is a phenomenon that takes place in the neuromusculoskeletal system. The neuromusculoskeletal system is made up of the body’s nerves, muscles, and bones. The neuromusculoskeletal system is responsible for helping the body to move, hold itself upright, and interact with the outside world. When there is an imbalance in this system, the entire function of the body is compromised. Most people have never heard of nerve interference, or understand its substantial effect on the human body.
If you’ve been experiencing any conditions that have not resolved with time or attention—for example, chronic neck and back pain, stiffness in the joints, sharp discomfort or nerve pain, digestive issues, or foggy-headedness and fatigue, then you might actually be experiencing nerve interference. If this is you or someone you love, read on to discover what else nerve interference can cause, and how it can be corrected.
What is nerve interference?
Does “nerve interference” sound complicated or rare? It’s not! Nerve interference is actually very simple and common. Nerve interference occurs when the healthy function of the nerves throughout your body is impaired. This commonly results because of the misalignment of bones in the spine. The nerves of the body are intricately connected to the spinal cord, and when the joints of the spinal cord move out of alignment, this can compress and inflame the nerves in the area.
The nerves that connect to even the smallest junctions near the spinal joints can have huge impacts all over the body. Even a small misalignment in the spine can create a ripple effect of nerve, joint, and muscle tension. When the joints of the spine are misaligned, the body suffers globally. This causes imbalances in nearly every other body system, forcing the body to compensate in other health-deteriorating ways.
Unfortunately, nerve interference that is caused by misaligned joints in the spine does not correct itself. Instead, it usually worsens over time. That means numbness, tingling, pain, and other discomfort from nerve interference is likely to only become more severe the longer it is left untreated.
#1. Nerve interference can be a pain in the neck—and back.
Nerve interference is one of the most common causes of back pain. The throbbing, pinching, aching, stabbing discomfort that can occur in the middle, lower and upper back can often be traced to nerves that are being inflamed due to misalignment in the spine.
#2. Your daily activities may be interrupted by nerve interference.
Are you an athlete or a gamer who has felt pain while engaging in your favorite regular activity? The pain and discomfort you’re feeling may be because of nerve interference. Nerve interference can make movements and postures that used to be comfortable extremely uncomfortable. It can be very difficult when an occupation or activity that used to be comfortable and pleasant becomes unpleasant due to pain caused by nerve interference.
#3. Clouded mind? It may be because of nerve interference.
The nervous system is responsible for transmitting information from the brain to the spine (and from the spine to the brain). When this process is interrupted because of nerve interference, thinking can become difficult. Nerve interference can cause confusion, dizziness, mental fog, mental lethargy, and other negative effects.
#4. Your stomach pain can be caused by nerve interference.
The digestive system has its own nervous system called the enteric nervous system. If the enteric nervous system is disrupted, the entire digestive process will suffer. This means that symptoms of digestive disease can rapidly occur. These symptoms include acid reflux, GERD, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, and indigestion.
#5. Numb fingers and toes? It may be nerve interference, not circulation problems.
Have you ever awakened in the middle of the night with numb hands or arms? Have you been in the middle of an activity and inexplicably your fingers or toes go numb? For some people, wearing high heels or certain articles of clothing can cause their extremities to go numb. This can be caused by nerve interference, which limits the amount of nerve energy and sensation (not to be confused with blood circulation) in the body’s extremities.
#6. Lack of restful sleep can be due to nerve interference.
Nerve interference can make it difficult to sleep peacefully through the night. Nerve interference can cause pain in the body when you’re trying to sleep: back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and other pain throughout the body can prevent a rejuvenating sleep. Additionally, nerve interference can negatively affect cognition and brain function, which is meant to be restored during sleep.
#7. You might be more likely to injure yourself if you have nerve interference.
Because nerve interference can spontaneously cause a loss of sensation in extremities, as well as cause pain, stiffness, and inflexibility, nerve interference can also contribute to injuries. Whether an athlete, on the job or simply carrying out a routine activity, nerve interference can make the body less equipped for daily life, increasing the likelihood of injuries.
#8. Nerve interference can make recovering from injury difficult.
Are you already injured? Nerve interference can make injuries difficult to recover from, especially if spinal misalignment is present. Nerve interference reduces the transmission of nerve energy throughout the body, which is nourishing life energy that allows the body to respond to its environment, function in the world, and heal.
#9. Nerve interference can speed your aging process.
Nerve interference can increase stiffness, immobility, and sensation in the body. All of these factors reduce the vitality in the body, making it more difficult to complete tasks, accomplish goals, and integrate with the world.
#10. Long-term health may be damaged by nerve interference.
Nerve interference usually occurs because a nerve is being inflamed, pinched, or compressed by a misaligned joint. Unfortunately, long-term this can cause nerve damage and nerves to be severed. While nerves can regenerate, this isn’t always the case.
