What is a pinched nerve?

Pinched nerves occur when pressure is placed on nerve roots by the tissue surrounding the nerve, such as bones, muscles, joints, or cartilage. Pinched nerves can occur in different areas of your body, causing pain, numbness, and weakness.  

What causes pinched nerves?

Various factors can contribute to pinched nerves. Spinal injuries can cause bones, joints, or discs to shift out of position and press on spinal nerves to cause pain. Pinched nerves can also be caused by inflamed joints, bone spurs, or bulging discs that compress the sciatic nerve. Anytime tissues put excessive pressure on your nerves, it can lead to discomfort and pain.

What are the symptoms of a pinched nerve?

Acute, sharp pain is the main symptom of a pinched nerve. Additional symptoms include numbness, muscle weakness, loss of balance, and mobility. If left untreated, pinched nerve symptoms can worsen, making movement impossible without feeling pain. Diagnosing pinched nerves early can help expedite your treatment and recovery. At the first sign of pinched nerve pain, contact our Plainville chiropractor for a diagnosis of your condition to see if chiropractic care can help with treatment.

What factors increase your risk of developing a pinched nerve?

Certain chronic conditions like osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis put you at greater risk of developing a pinched nerve due to getting bone spurs that can put pressure on spinal nerves. Your age and weight can also contribute to this condition. Spinal injuries and joint overuse due to work or play are additional factors that can make you more susceptible to nerve issues.

How does chiropractic care help with pain relief of pinched nerves?

Our Plainville chiropractor will use spinal adjustments to relieve pressure that misaligned bones, joints, or discs are placing on your nerves. Adjustments help realign your spinal column, which is the first step toward pain relief. Adjustments also help relieve inflammation to ease pinched nerve pain. Spinal decompression can help relieve pain from herniated discs, so your body has a chance to heal. After evaluating your condition, we’ll outline a treatment plan conducive to your needs.
