Overview

A pinched nerve is a condition that occurs when a nerve becomes harmfully compressed in the body. This pinching disrupts the nerve’s ability to carry signals back and forth between the body and the brain. Pinched nerves can occur anywhere in the body, but pinched nerves in the neck, back and wrist are especially common complaints that frequently cause people to seek chiropractic care.

Causes

Pinched nerves can be caused by acute injury, or they can be caused by conditions such as spinal misalignment, stress, poor posture and arthritis. Bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and other structures can all play a role in causing a pinched nerve. Bulging spinal discs are frequent causes of pinched nerves in the spinal column.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a pinched nerve vary according to the location of the nerve and the severity of the damage. Symptoms may include numbness, tingling, localized pain or pain in other areas served by the nerve. A pinched nerve root in the lower back, for example, can lead to pain radiating down through the buttocks, thigh, calf and foot. Symptoms of a pinched nerve may come and go, and may result in permanent damage if the patient does not seek proper care.

Care and Management

Chiropractic care has proven to be safe, noninvasive and effective for relieving the pressure of pinched nerves. Care options may include adjustments, laser therapy, ultrasound, and electromuscular stimulation. A chiropractor can also work on the surrounding muscles to reduce tension and relieve discomfort, and may suggest rest, physical therapy, and devices such as splints or braces that protect the nerve. A continuing care plan may be recommended to ensure lasting benefits.
