pinched nerves

A pinched nerve arises when excessive pressure is exerted on a nerve due to nearby tissues, such as bone, cartilage, muscles, or tendons. This compression can result in a range of symptoms, with the most common manifestations being shooting pain, numbness, and tingling sensations.

Pinched nerves can lead to various conditions, including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (affecting the shoulder, elbow, or wrist), Cervical Radiculopathy (occurring in the neck), and Lumbar Sciatica (in the lower back). An important point to note is that the spinal nerves in the lower back extend through the buttocks, forming the sciatic nerve, which then travels down the legs into the feet. Consequently, a pinched nerve in the lower back can generate symptoms that radiate down the leg and into the foot, despite the primary issue originating in the lower back. Similarly, a pinched nerve in the neck can give rise to numbness, tingling, or shooting pains in the arms and hands.

Prolonged pressure on a nerve can lead to irreversible damage, including chronic pain, underscoring the importance of timely and effective intervention.

Chiropractic Care stands as a highly effective treatment option for pinched nerves and their associated symptoms. Chiropractic Adjustments can alleviate pinched nerve pain and pressure by directly addressing the affected joints. Muscle Stripping and Trigger Point Myotherapy are valuable approaches when muscular Nerve Entrapment is the underlying cause. Furthermore, Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression proves beneficial for herniated or bulging discs contributing to pinched nerves.

The journey to identifying the root cause of pinched nerve pain initiates with a comprehensive Clinical History and Physical Examination. In many instances, Diagnostic Imaging becomes necessary for a more in-depth assessment.
