How do you know you have a pinched nerve?

A pinched nerve occurs when a nerve is damaged in some way and unable to fully send its information signals. It is caused when a nerve gets confined or squeezed, which can be due to arthritis, herniated disc, or bone spurs. You can also get a pinched nerve from other situations and activities such as injury, poor posture, repetitive motions, sports, hobbies, and obesity.

Pinched nerves can occur all over the body, although they are most common in the spine, neck, wrists, and elbows.

  • These conditions cause inflammation, which constricts your nerves and causes them to become pinched.
  • Poor nutrition and general health can worsen a pinched nerve.
  • This condition can be reversible or irreversible, depending on the severity of the case.

Don’t take a chance on your health. Get it checked out before its too late.

Nerves are most vulnerable at places in your body where they travel through narrow spacesbut have little soft tissue to protect them. Nerve compression often occurs when the nerve is pressed between tissues such as:

  • Ligament
  • Tendon
  • Bone

Nerve compression in your neck or arm may also cause symptoms in areas such as your:

  • Elbow
  • Hand
  • Wrist
  • Fingers

Chiropractor Parkland FL care for pinched nerves

When you come to a Parkland Chiropractor with symptoms of a pinched nerve, the first thing we do is a comprehensive consultation. We do several tests to better understand the underlying cause of the problem. We will need to determine what the spinal alignment looks like in order to design the best treatment plan for you. Every treatment plan is designed to help patients correct or alleviate the pain and stabilize the affected area.

Why treatment for a pinched nerve is important

When a pinched nerve goes untreated, the underlying condition can continue to worsen over time. Whether the pinched nerve is caused by osteoarthritis, disc degeneration or a misalignment, it needs to be treated as soon as possible in order to stop it from getting worse. Some people end up in situations that can only be reversed with surgery. Our goal as a Chiropractor Parkland FL is to ensure we find and correct pinched nerves and associated conditions early enough so our patients never have to undergo surgery.

Benefits of chiropractic care for pinched nerves

We can help you to determine whether the pain you are experiencing is due to a pinched nerve. We will administer treatment that is not only designed to treat the symptoms but also deal with the underlying problem. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to be effective in alleviating or taking pressure off the nerves. We may also recommend massage therapy and a range of stretching exercises to enhance the range of motion of the joints.

Most people who experience symptoms of a pinched nerve turn to over the counter medication to deal with pain and swelling. However, this never deals with the underlying problem and hence the condition worsens over time.
