Pinched Nerve

Chiropractic therapy is extremely helpful in treating pinched nerves in many ways. Pinched nerves usually are caused either a bony impingement, meaning there might be a joint that is pressing on the nerve, or in many cases by a bulging disc, herniated disc, or tight muscles. Chiropractic treatment can relieve pressure off the nerve and offer remarkable relief from pinched nerve pain. A pinched nerve doesn’t only have local pain. One in the neck can radiate down the arm, or another in the low back may radiate into the leg. Chiropractors can help relieve these pains by repositioning the bones, relaxing the muscles, and reducing the pressure on nerves.

(Dr. Krasnov) Pinched nerve is really one of the things that we do best. Chiropractors are real helpful in treating pinched nerves, that of course is a laymen’s term but I think everyone knows what that means, and anyone who’s had a pinched nerve knows what it feels like.

(Dr. Ferez) Chiropractors can help pinched nerves in many ways. They are caused, typically, either a bony impingement, meaning there might be a joint that is pressing on the nerve, or in many cases may be cause by a bulging disc, herniated disc, or simply tight muscles. It can be caused by some minor misalignments, or just some tightening around that nerve that is now irritating or pinching that nerve. Through chiropractic treatment we can get that pressure off the nerve, stop that pinch of the nerve, and patients will often feel remarkable relief from chiropractic care.

(Dr. Armstrong) Chiropractic is a conservative, drug free, non-surgical, non-invasive technique and allows us to treat that patient without all the inherent risks of pharmaceutical approach or a surgical approach, and typically we know very quickly if we’re going to be successful with that patient.

(Dr. Ferez) A pinched nerve doesn’t only have local pain, but a pinched nerve, let’s say, in the neck will radiate down the arm, and a pinched nerve in the low back will very often radiate into the leg. A lot of people think that either they have a bone out of place, a tight muscle, or a pinched nerve. It’s very important for patients to understand, if you have one, you have all three and that’s pretty much always the case. Chiropractors can help that by repositioning the bones, relaxing the muscles, and reducing the pressure on nerves.
