Visit Our Chiropractors for a Pinched Nerve
If you’ve been diagnosed with a pinched nerve, you might be worried that relief will require invasive techniques and addictive substances. However, you will be happy to know that you have several options. Below, our team at Spine Pain Center will explain what a pinched nerve is and why chiropractic care is an effective and natural choice for treatment. We have several locations in North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, Surfside Beach, Summerville, Irmo, Columbia, and North Myrtle Beach, SC.
What Is a Pinched Nerve?
A pinched nerve is what it sounds like, a nerve pinched or compressed by something. This pain is caused by pressure within the musculoskeletal system, such as:
- Misaligned bones
- Ruptured spinal disc
- Bone spur
- Muscular inflammation
When a nerve becomes compressed, it leads to pain, numbness, weakness, and tingling. Sciatica is the most commonly-known pinched nerve condition. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve (the largest nerve running from the lower back to the feet) becomes pinched.
Chiropractic Treatment for Pinched Nerves
The reason chiropractic care is so effective for pinched nerves is based on the practice. It seeks to address the cause of a condition, not just the symptoms. Our chiropractors use techniques that ease the nerves, such as those below.
- Chiropractic Adjustments - Chiropractic adjustments restore alignment to the spine, which addresses any bones or discs that might cause the compression.
- Spinal Decompression Therapy - Spinal decompression therapy is a method that gently stretches the spine, causing a vacuum-like effect that pulls herniated discs back into their proper place.
- Soft Tissue Therapy - Various types of gentle tissue therapy help relieve inflammation and tension, reduce or eliminate muscle spasms, and pull blood and nutrients to the damaged area to promote natural healing.
Additionally, our team will guide steps you can take in your daily life to enhance your recovery further and prevent the condition from occurring again.
