Pinched Nerve? Chiropractic Care Can Help

When you have a pinched nerve, you can experience persistent symptoms, including pain, muscle weakness, and “pins and needles” sensations. Chiropractic care may be able to noninvasively treat what’s causing your symptoms and restore you to full strength and range of motion.

The experienced team at RehabOne Medical Group offers expert chiropractic treatments for patients dealing with alignment issues, such as pinched nerve, at our Los Gatos, San Jose, Gilroy, and Salinas, California, offices.

Pain from pinching

If the roots of your nerves ― where they branch out from your spinal cord ― become compressed due to something nearby pressing on them, you may experience pain and other uncomfortable symptoms. You might have a pinched nerve anywhere along your spine, from your neck ― the cervical region ― to your lower back ― the lumbar region.

Each year, pinched nerves impact around 85 out of every 100,000 adults in the United States. In middle-aged adults, pinched nerves are often caused by a spinal disc herniation. Between each of the vertebrae of your spine are rubbery discs that provide cushioning for your vertebrae. Lifting, twisting, bending, and other motions can stress these discs, and if one gets stressed too much, the soft center of the disc can push out of the harder exterior and press on a nerve.

The discomfort associated with pinched nerves can manifest in several ways. You might feel:

Your neck might also lose some of its range of motion if you have a pinched nerve higher up your spine.

Relieving your nerve pain

Studies show that chiropractic treatments can help patients who have pinched nerves in their spine. We can use chiropractic treatments to noninvasively realign your spine and relieve pressure on troubled areas of your back. Working with our hands and other tools, we can apply controlled force to push your joints and other structures back into place. By putting your spine back in alignment, we can help relieve inflammation and thereby free up any pinched nerves.

If you have pain from pinched nerves or suspect a pinched nerve is causing your pain, we can help. We’ll give you a thorough evaluation and suggest the appropriate treatments for you. Effective treatment may require more than one session, but we’ll go over all the details once we examine you. To learn more, book an appointment over the phone with RehabOne Medical Group today.
