Chiropractic Care for Pinched Nerves
Do you feel a sudden, stabbing pain in your neck or upper back? Maybe it wakes you up in the middle of the night or it feels like a hot blade while trying to work. Perhaps when you go to pick something up, the pain flares up. Pinched nerves have a way of stopping you right in your tracks. Some minor injuries can go away after a few days, but some will continue to linger on and many will only compound over time resulting in additional injuries and other problems over time. That is why you need to seek out relief from pinched nerve pain here at Salinas Chiropractic. Our chiropractic care will help to address your pinched nerve, reduce the pressure placed on it, and restore your ability to do the things you love.
What Is a Pinched Nerve
Nerve endings run up and down your spine and throughout the rest of your body. These small nerves send signals to your brain telling it how you should feel. However, faulty signals can be triggered when something presses on your nerve. Usually, this is caused by too much pressure on a nerve by surrounding tissues or by a disc that slips out of place in your neck or upper back. The disc then presses on the nerve creating a pinching sensation. You may have a pinched nerve because of an injury, rheumatoid or wrist arthritis, stress from repetitive work, hobbies or sports activities, or obesity. Some patients also experience neck and lower back pain depending on the location of the affected nerve.
Chiropractic care allows for a more natural and healthy approach to healing the body. There are no surgeries or harmful medications involved in treating your condition. Our chiropractor can help realign the spine to minimize the chance of a pinched nerve from occurring. This will also help improve your ability to avoid further pinched nerves in the future. Our gentle adjustments help the body heal on its own. While over the counter medications may help to temporarily decrease inflammation and pain, the underlying issues will not be properly corrected. This is why our chiropractic treatment is necessary.
