‘Trapped nerve’ is the common term, meaning there is a nerve in the body that has become pinched or compressed through problems such as disc injuries, arthritis or irritation due inflammation. Depending on where the nerve is trapped there can be many symptoms, and these include:
- Considerable pain
- Pins and needles
Pinched nerves can occur anywhere in the body but most typically occur in the neck, lower back or mid back but it is important to remember that trapped nerves in one area will commonly lead to pain occurring in the parts of the body where the nerve leads to.
It is the job of your chiropractor to diagnose and treat misalignments and injuries to the back and the compressed nerves that are a result of these problems. Often your chiropractor can relieve the symptoms and correct the problem without the intervention of drugs or surgery making it the preferred treatment for many people.
As well as being given advice to help speed up the recovery process, the chiropractor will perform a series of adjustments to your back over a period of weeks that will encourage the back to align properly and take the pressure off the nerves that are pinched. Instead of relying on medications that just mask the cause of the trapped nerve pain try Amethyst Chiropractic Clinic and get specific solution based care.
Not only is Chiropractic Treatment drug free, but in most cases you may find it to be far more effective, and should always be considered as the first option to avoid the need for surgery.
