A pinched nerve can be extremely uncomfortable and can cause numbness when in certain positions. If you are suffering from pinched nerve pain, you may be wondering what treatment options are available. At Centennial Chiropractic Clinic in Springfield, OR, we have been providing patients with chiropractic care to relieve pinched nerve pain for many years. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will address the root cause of your pinched nerve pain.
Causes & Symptoms
Most commonly, incorrect body positions such as crossed legs or leaning on your elbow can cause pressure or injury to your nerves. Weight gain, pregnancy, or even a herniated disc can all put you at risk for developing a pinched nerve as well as repetitive activities such as typing. A tingling sensation is the most common symptom of a pinched nerve. It is often accompanied by numbness that comes and goes. Pain may be present, and the tingling sensations felt are usually described as electrical or sharp. In the most severe cases, patients report muscle weakness.
You may have to undergo some tests for our chiropractor to accurately diagnose your pinched nerve. Your doctor will also ask you about the symptoms you are experiencing. Tests include:
- Nerve conduction study
- Magnetic resonance imaging
- High-resolution ultrasound
Chiropractic care for a pinched nerve is normally the best route to go for treatment and tends to be the most beneficial. By restoring your body’s natural alignment, our chiropractor will reduce both the frequency and intensity of your pinched nerve pain. Regular adjustments ensure your body does not slip out of alignment and begin irritating your nerves once again. Chiropractic care also reduces inflammation and improves circulation throughout your body. Exact adjustments performed will depend on the cause, location, and severity of your pinched nerve pain.
