What You Need to Know About Pinched Nerves

By Rachel Carver

There's nothing fun about a pinched nerve. The pain is constant. And it can disrupt your daily activities.

Luckily, relief is in sight at your neighborhood Joint Chiropractic clinic. Read on to learn more about this painful annoyance and how chiropractic care can help.

What Is a Pinched Nerve?

A pinched nerve is caused by too much pressure. Extra pressure applied to a nerve by bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons can disrupt the nerves function. This causes pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness.

Nerves throughout your body can become pinched. A herniated disk in your lower spine can put pressure on a nerve root, leading to a pinched nerve and radiating pain. A pinched nerve in your wrist can lead to carpal tunnel, causing numbness in your fingers and hands.

Additional pinched nerve symptoms can include:

  • Muscle weakness in the affected area
  • A tingling sensation
  • Frequently feeling like your foot or hand has fallen asleep
  • Radiating sharp or aching pain
  • Worsening nighttime symptoms

How Chiropractors Help

Other health conditions can make you think you have a pinched nerve. Whether your symptoms are coming from a pinched nerve or a restricted disc, it is best to receive a proper diagnosis. Chiropractic care can give you an accurate diagnosis and provide natural, safe, and drug free treatment.

Your local Joint Chiropractic clinic will identify the source of your discomfort and address it with targeted adjustments. Properly aligning your body can help reduce swelling and inflammation. Irritated nerves will be restored to their normal function.

Constant pain that comes with a pinched nerve will not go away without care. Pain medications may give you temporary relief, but you will quickly find yourself back in pain and feeling very frustrated and uncomfortable. Chiropractic care can help you break this cycle.
