Nerve root pinching in the neck can cause nerve pressure and effect the upper extremities and lower extremities as well.
Pinching of the nerves (nerve root compression) in the lower neck C6 will effect the thumb, pointer and middle fingers. One or all.
C7 nerve root pinching effects the #4 and #5 fingers (ring and pinkie).
If this is happening to you or you are having symptoms in your legs, chiropractic is often very helpful. If you catch it early it usually removes all the symptoms.
Our Roseville chiropractors have delt with the issues many times.
