What Causes A Pinched Nerve?
Nerves run throughout your entire body. The nerves are constantly carrying information from your brain to other parts of the body and back again. When a nerve is pinched or compressed, it cannot send messages the way it is supposed to. The pinched nerve will instead start sending pain signals. Nerves can become pinched when a muscle, bone, or tendon is creating pressure. This is often caused by inflammation or it can be caused by an injury. Some common culprits behind pinched nerves include:
- Over exercise
- Weight gain
- Bad posture
- Bad sleeping positions
Our team will determine what is causing your pinched nerve through diagnostic testing. Once this is complete, a customized treatment plan will be developed which will get to the root of your problem so that you can find effective pain relief.
Pinched Nerve Symptoms
Here are a few common symptoms of pinched nerves:
- Pain when moving
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you could have a pinched nerve. It is important to seek treatment for your pinched nerve as soon as you can. When left untreated, a pinched nerve can result in permanent damage which could cause long-term nerve pain.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
If you have a pinched nerve, our chiropractor can help. Once the source of the pinched nerve has been located, a treatment plan will be created that is designed to relieve the pressure. Spinal adjustments are often a good starting place. When the spine is in proper alignment, many other joints and channels of the body fall into alignment and open up.
