What Is a Pinched Nerve?
Nerves are sensitive, fibrous tissues that are found throughout the body. Nerves are a part of the nervous system and function to send and receive messages to and from the brain. Nerves run through many narrow pathways connecting muscles, bones, joints, and other tissues. If the space in these narrow pathways becomes constricted, it can start to press on the nerve. This pressure can cause pain and irritation.
What Are the Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve?
A pinched nerve is often characterized by pain in a specific area. In some cases, the pain will be present without the instance of an injury to that area. In other cases, you may have had an injury and the injury is the cause of inflammation constricting the nerve. Other symptoms of a pinched nerve include tingling and numbness. In some cases, the tingling and numbness will be located in another area of the body.
Can a Chiropractor Help?
If you have a pinched nerve, our chiropractor can help. Chiropractic care aims to get down to the root of pain issues. This is different from traditional medical treatment, which often only aims to treat the symptoms of a problem with medication. Pain medications often have harsh side effects which can take a toll on your quality of life.
When you visit our chiropractor, you will be evaluated to determine the cause of your pinched nerve and the exact location of your pain. After this, a treatment plan will be developed for you.
Your treatment plan may include spinal adjustments, hot/cold therapy, massage therapy, and even cold laser therapy.
