A pinched nerve can be extremely uncomfortable, and come on without any warning. Whether you sustained an injury, or you just woke up with a pinched nerve, our chiropractic team can help you get some relief. At Michaux Family Chiropractic in Clermont, FL, we have plenty of experience treating pinched nerves. Please give us a call to schedule your appointment and get the relief you are looking for!
With so many nerves traveling through the spine and throughout the body, it is not surprising that one or more nerves can become pinched from time to time. Most of the time pinched nerves occur in the neck or the back, although it is possible for them to occur elsewhere in the body. When the spine goes out of alignment, it can put pressure on nerves and lead to discomfort, numbness, tingling, loss of sensation and pain.
Whether it occurs from an accident, sleeping the wrong way, moving in an awkward manner or lifting something heavy, the symptoms of a pinched nerve can be quite uncomfortable.
Chiropractic care and associated therapies can provide a great deal of relief from pinched nerves. Common treatments include:
An adjustment from a chiropractor is designed to realign your spine, relieving pressure on discs and nerves in the spine. It may take one adjustment, or it may take a series of adjustments, but chiropractic adjustments are well-known for their ability to relieve the pressure on nerves and the associated symptoms that result from pinched nerves.
Using a table designed specifically to gently stretch the spine, our chiropractor can decompress your vertebrae to relieve the pressure on your pinched nerve. Spinal decompression can produce the necessary space for your discs to move back into place, increase circulation and encourage your body’s own healing abilities.
Often pinched nerves are the result of misalignments in the body. By learning and doing rehab exercises, you can strengthen your body to help it maintain alignment, which can reduce the possibility of similar injuries in the future.
The correct exercises can go a long way towards preventing future pinched nerves, but proper nutrition is equally important to maintain the health of your body. We can give you recommendations for healthy eating that will reduce inflammation, encourage healing and keep you feeling better for years to come.
