A pinched nerve occurs when there is “compression” or pressure on a nerve. This can occur from the result of repetitive motions, trauma or it may happen from holding your body in one position for long periods, such as sleeping awkwardly or sitting for prolonged periods of time. These are common injuries for people who have a desk job or for students. Nerve compression often occurs when there are misalignment’s in the spine, bulging discs or swelling around a joint.

The nervous system is the primary control center of your body. It flows through your spinal column and can be manipulated by the 24 vertebrae. By understanding the role that each vertebrae within the spinal column plays, a doctor of Chiropractic, can help relieve you of pain by manipulating your spinal column to provide relief.

Nerve impingement can be extremely painful. The pinched nerve has the flow of the nerve blocked, which disrupts the message your nerve is trying to send. If left untreated, eventually the nerve starts to lose its healthy ability to transmit the correct messages and the nerve fiber may eventually die. When enough fibers stop working, not only can you feel pain but other symptoms often occur. The damage can be minor or severe. It may cause short term or long-term problems. The earlier you get a diagnosis and treatment for a pinched nerve, the more quickly you’ll find relief. Almost always, chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic specifically looks for the source of the problem and restores normal alignment, alleviating the pain.
