Pinched Nerve? Chiropractic Can Help

By Sara Butler

Dealing with a pinched nerve is no fun. It can cause an immense amount of pain where the nerve is pinched and beyond. Quite often, a pinched nerve is the result of a bulging, protruding, or herniated disc somewhere along the spine. This can put pressure on the nerve and impact its normal function, resulting in pain anywhere along that nerve pathway. Here's what you should know about pinched nerves and in what way the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help.

On Your Nerves

The nerves in your body start in your brain, traveling down through the spinal cord and throughout your entire body. When a nerve becomes compressed at any point, your body sends a warning signal that something isn't right -- usually in the form of pain.

There are many ways a nerve can become compressed. Sometimes it's the result of an injury, sometimes it's the result of bad habits, and still other times it's the result of repetitive motions. Whatever the reason, the chiropractors at The Joint will help to identify the root cause and help you find relief.

The Symptoms

How do you know if you have a pinched nerve? Pain is, of course, a sign, but there are other things to look for too, such as:

  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Burning sensation
  • Weakness in the extremities
  • Radiating pain, often in the limbs

If you have any of these symptoms, it's a good idea to bring them to the attention of a chiropractor for further evaluation.

Treatment

While over-the-counter drugs may help to some degree, they're not treating the problem at its cause. At The Joint, the chiropractors focus on eliminating the problem at its core, allowing you to attain better health in the process and allowing your body to do what it was made to do: heal itself.

Chiropractors treat pinched nerves in a variety of ways. They may perform hands-on chiropractic adjustments, suggest exercises, or suggest heat or cold therapy to help manage the pain. They want to treat your overall health and wellness, not simply the possible issues you may be having with a pinched nerve.

The Joint is here to help you get healthy and stay that way. Chiropractors treat a variety of conditions, but if you suspect you may have a pinched nerve, then do not delay in getting the help you need to resolve the problem and begin the healing process.
