Pinched Nerve Chiropractor

A pinched nerve is the painful obstruction of nerve roots that have branched from the spinal cord. Blockages impair the control and regulation of the brain on the body. If any of the spinal bones are misaligned, they can impede normal flow and irritate the nerves, causing a subluxation.

A pinched nerve is the painful obstruction of nerve roots that have branched from the spinal cord. Blockages impair the control and regulation of the brain on the body. If any of the spinal bones are misaligned, they can impede normal flow and irritate the nerves, causing a subluxation.

There are two types of nerve disturbances:

  • The most common are facilitative lesions, when the nerve root is twisted, stretched or chafed. Hard tissue rubs on soft tissue.
  • Compressed lesions are pinched nerves but are rather rare.

Remember that bones are stationary. The muscles initiate movement as directed by the nervous system. Irritated nerves disrupt normal movement. Chiropractic intervention helps to lessen the impact on the nervous system.

During a physical exam, we can locate areas of the spine that are “stuck” and not moving appropriately. We can make a chiropractic adjustment. to reduce nerve irritation. This natural solution maintains the integrity of the nervous system without harmful medication or invasive techniques. Call us today.


Frequently Asked Questions:

When will I experience relief?

Every situation is unique. Some patients experience pain relief almost instantaneously while it may take weeks or months for others. Many factors affect the healing process but most individuals feel at least some pain reduction and choose to complete treatment.

Why did my friend only require a single visit?

While some people experience tremendous pain relief in one session, it is common to suffer a relapse because the soft tissues and muscles have not been retrained and fortified. Adults typically have a great deal of structural and functional damage to the spine that has never been addressed prior to their first visit to a chiropractor. This takes time to remedy.
