Are you suffering from pain because of a pinched nerve? Symptoms of pinched nerve pain include neck pain, headaches, mid- or lower back pain, shoulder pain, numbness, tingling, and burning sensations. You may also experience a limited range of motion. In some cases pinched nerves can also trigger painful muscle spasms. If you are suffering from pain due a pinched nerve, chiropractic care can help.
Learn How Chiropractic Care Treats Pinched Nerves
Don’t let a pinched nerve be a “pain in your back”. Here are four ways that chiropractic care can make a difference for your pain:
#1: Target the source. Traditional medical care focuses on relieving the symptoms of your pain, but may fail to actually address the root cause. This means once medication wears off, your symptoms will return. Chiropractic care for a pinched nerve is designed to find and correct the underlying problem, not simply treat a patient’s symptoms. By targeting pain at the source, this whole body approach provides long-lasting pain relief.
#2: Restore proper alignment to the spine. If your spine is out of alignment, a herniated disc or slipped disc may be compressing nearby nerves, causing the pinched nerve pain. Relieving this nerve compression is essential to relieving your pain. Chiropractic adjustments are an effective treatment technique for restoring proper alignment to the spine and alleviating nerve compression.
#3: Restore mobility to the body. In addition to causing pain, a pinched nerve can reduce your natural range of motion and limit your mobility. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor may recommend corrective exercises to bring a full range of mobility back to the body.
#4: Reduce the risk for future pain. Our chiropractor follows a “whole body” approach to pain relief. This means that our goal is to not only relieve your pain at the source, but reduce the risk for future pain. Keeping the spine correctly aligned is part of a long-term approach to pain management. Regular chiropractic adjustments keep the spine properly aligned, reducing the risk for future pain from a pinched nerve.
