What is a pinched nerve?
A pinched nerve is a very uncomfortable injury that involves when a nerve or nerves, usually in your neck and sometimes in other sensitive areas around your back, have been pinched or restricted in some way that creates lasting discomfort. Often times, this leads to difficulty and pain in going through daily activities. Those who experience pinched nerves complain of very uncomfortable kinds of feeling, from numbing sensations to even a possible light burning that pulses from one spot of the sensation continuously, causing discomfort and affecting your quality of life.
The good news is that in most cases, both the long-term and short-term problems associated with pinching nerve are minor, save for the discomfort and lower quality of life while dealing with the injury. However, the bad news is that it is relatively easy to suffer through long-term damage to the nerve, which can happen if it’s not examined by a medical professional. If, after a period of rest and recovery for at least three days, the pain has still not subsided, it is likely the right time to find a medical solution and take on the treatment of a quality medical professional to improve your symptoms and get you back to functioning regularly.
Can chiropractors fix pinched nerve issues?
Yes! Actually, seeking chiropractic care to replenish your body and fix any nerve issue you may be experiencing is usually the best option for lasting relief. If you’ve tried the whole rest-relaxation-repeat, and haven’t gotten anywhere or find that your pain has still not subsided after time off, it’s up to you to look for the qualified, professional chiropractic doctor in your area who can safely, quickly, and effectively manage your pain and return you to the person you were before pain and discomfort.
In this instance, chiropractors work by examining your spine in order to medically determine not only the severity of the pinched nerve, but also in examining compression of the nerves in and around the vertebrae in your neck and back. Chiropractors realign the spine to its optimum position both gently and safely, easing pressure on the nerves, and creating relief from your pain to help you function more efficiently than ever before!
Nerve pain is no joke. When nerves are not in the place they should be, it can negatively affect your immune system and lead to poor health, sickness, and a host of other manifestations of physical problems. Your body is forever inter-connected, and while one pinched nerve may seem minor, without treatment it can lead to much more severe problems in the long term if it is not adequately addressed by a chiropractor.
What starts out as an annoyance can become extremely significant, but the good news is that seeing a chiropractor for treatment is the first step towards becoming a healthier, happier person almost overnight. The sooner you can visit a chiropractor to treat that nagging pinched nerve, the sooner your realignment and re-purposing will work to safely and effectively cure that bothersome pinched nerve!
