Pinched nerves happen when bone, cartilage, or other tissues move out of place and begin placing extra weight and stress on a nerve. This added pressure, known as nerve compression, keeps the nerve from being able to do its job.
People who have a pinched nerve are likely to suffer from a variety of symptoms such as pain, a “pins and needles” sensation, and numbness. In many cases, the pain will travel the distance of the nerve. For example, people who have a pinched nerve in their lower back may have pain that radiates down the leg, following the path of the compressed nerve.
Pinched nerves can happen virtually anywhere in the human body. The part of the body showing symptoms may not even be the same as the actual location of the compressed nerve. Pinched nerves often happen in the spinal column, but they are also commonly seen in the median nerve moving through the carpal tunnel area in the wrist. Pinched nerves are even found in the elbow and in the shoulder, both areas that people may not think about when they think of pinched nerves.
The reason that a pinched nerve causes so much pain is that it’s trapped, completely unable to function normally. The chiropractor’s focus is on making gentle adjustments that are targeted toward releasing the nerve. This allows it to return to its normal position and will almost always result in fast symptom relief. Chiropractic adjustments help the entire nervous system function better, not just the pinched nerves, so when patients visit the chiropractic care provider for pinched nerve treatment, it will have benefits for the entire body.
