When surrounding bones, muscles, or tendons apply too much pressure to a nerve, the nerve's function becomes damaged resulting in pain, numbness, or tingling. This concept is called a pinched nerve. Although most common in the neck, back, or wrist, pinched nerves can occur at virtually any nerve in your body. Our team of experts are passionate about helping you lead a more active lifestyle. We offer professional chiropractic and therapeutic massage to relieve the pressure, reduce your pain, and get you back to your everyday activities.
Causes of a Pinched Nerve
Heavy lifting, sports, or simply being in an unnatural position for too long can result in a pinched nerve. This can become debilitating, agonizing, and can make your body immobile. Nerves can become compressed by tissue from any sort of inflammation or swelling caused by the following:
- Herniated or bulging disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Bone spur
- And more
How Hiller Chiropractic Helps Pinched Nerves
When treating a pinched nerve, we focus on reducing the inflammation around the problem area, which aids in pain reduction and an increased range of motion. Since all injuries and symptoms differ from patient to patient, our certified and licensed chiropractor performs a neuromuscular exam and x-ray to determine the most effective treatment for your pinched nerve. Treatments may include a combination of chiropractic and massage therapy, such as adjustments, manual manipulations, Swedish massage, and more. All of our treatments and techniques at Hiller Chiropractic are nonsurgical, drug-free, and natural alternatives for relieving pain, increasing stability, and improving your body's range of motion.
