What are three types of nerve interference

Reflex
Irritation

2

what is neurothlipsis

pressure on a nerve, direct or indirect

3

To impinge upon a nerve is to press against it on one side. The impinging of nerves usually ______ their function, because of irritation

T of F
nerves may be subject to stretch, constriction,

F, Ischemia as well

T of F
Cervical and Lumbar Sublxations are more likely to produce foraminal encroachment resulting in compression than thoracic level subluxations?

T
- Less likely to occur in Thoracics due to smaller diameter of nerve roots (according to Hadley)
