Chiropractic Care for Pinched Nerves at Westport Chiropractic and Acupuncture
Your nerves play a critical role in your overall well-being. Nerves transmit information throughout the various systems and alert the body to trauma. Along with your nerves and nerve roots, the spinal cord and brain are intertwined with your nervous system. Nerve pain can occur when you suffer from an injury or disease that adversely impacts your nervous system. Pain affects people's lives by decreasing mobility and impacting overall wellness. Critical bodily systems, including the nervous and musculoskeletal systems, are often affected by nerve damage. Systemic imbalances arising from injuries, strains, and chronic medical conditions are contributors to persistent nerve pain in the body.
Luckily, pinched nerves are a common condition that chiropractic techniques can effectively treat. Employing chiropractic care as part of a healing program will benefit you in many ways, including increased pain relief. Our dedicated team at Westport Chiropractic and Acupuncture offers various chiropractic techniques for treating pinched nerves, helping to naturally relieve pain and improve mobility in the affected area. We have years of experience serving the Westport community with effective and compassionate chiropractic services.
Cause of Pinched Nerves
Nerve endings run up and down the spine and throughout the body, sending signals to your brain. However, faulty signals can be triggered when something presses on the nerve. We often see patients suffering from pinched nerves due to a slipped disc placing excessive pressure on a nerve, causing a pinching sensation. Other common injuries and ailments that cause nerve pain include:
- Certain diseases such as diabetes and degenerative disc disease contribute to nerve damage
- Old injuries that have healed incorrectly
- Injuries caused by repetitive use
- Serious sports injuries that damage the spine and nerves
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
One of our chiropractors will assess your medical history, current symptoms, and overall health to diagnose the root cause of your pinched nerve. Imaging tests like x-rays or CT scans may be required depending on the type of pain you're experiencing. From there, we can create a treatment plan that's personalized for your unique needs. A series of hands-on adjustments and spinal decompression may be used to target points in the affected area. Spinal decompression has been shown to greatly relieve pressure on nerves. Other techniques, such as cold laser therapy, may be recommended to reduce swelling and support the body's natural healing process.
