Have a Pinched Nerve? Our Chiropractor Can Help You Find Relief!
Jackson and West Tennessee residents who are suffering from a pinched nerve, our chiropractor at Durham Chiropractic can help locate the pinched nerve and develop a pain relief plan to address it.
What is a Pinched Nerve?
A pinched nerve occurs when the nerve has pressure put on it. It might become entrapped by bones, tendons, muscles, or cartilage. The pressure disrupts the function of the nerve. Pinched nerves in the spine can impact other areas of the body. For example, if you have a herniated disc in the lumbar spine that is putting pressure on the nerve root, you might feel the effects in the leg.
What are the Signs of a Pinched Nerve?
Pain, which can be burning, sharp, or aching, is one of the primary symptoms of a pinched nerve. You might also feel a pins-and-needles sensation, tingling, or numbness in the affected area. You may have a decrease in mobility in the impacted areas of the body and the pain may increase when you move or lay down.
How Does Chiropractic Care Address a Pinched Nerve?
The only way to help a pinched nerve is to take the pressure off it. Dr. Joel uses various types of adjustments to realign the spine and help you to get the relief that you need. It may take multiple visits to experience some type of relief. Once the pinched nerve is addressed, continued adjustments can help you to reap the all over benefits of having a properly aligned spine.
What Preventative Measures Stop Another Pinched Nerve?
Sometimes, a pinched nerve can’t be prevented. You can reduce the risk of having another a pinched nerve by keeping your weight healthy and incorporating flexibility and strengthening exercises into your daily routine. Maintain proper posture throughout your day and do not remain in the same position for a long period of time. You should also try to limit repetitive activities and remember to take breaks when you are doing those activities.
