Brown Chiropractic Center

man holding his lower back in painA pinched nerve is a generic term that refers to any injury or condition that causes compression of a nerve, resulting in pain, numbness or tingling. A damaged or misaligned joint can often cause this type of compression. When the impingement progresses to the point where it irritates the nerve, you may feel pain or other symptoms anywhere along that nerve.

More Accurate Terms

If you have a pinched nerve in your neck, you will generally feel the pain in your neck–but it probably won’t stop there! The pain, numbness or tingling often radiates into your shoulder, arm, hand and even your fingers.

In this case, a more accurate diagnosis would be brachial neuralgia, because the compression occurs in the brachial plexus. This is a huge group of nerves that runs from the neck down into the shoulders, arms and hands. Sciatica is this same type of compression of the sciatic plexus, causing pain down into the legs and feet.

Our Expert Approach

Over the course of our nearly forty years in practice, Brown Chiropractic Center has seen countless patients with pinched nerves. Chiropractic care is an excellent, safe and effective choice to relieve pinched nerve symptoms, because it corrects the underlying misaligned or damaged joint that is causing the impingement.

Dr. Brown will conduct a thorough examination to discover the cause of your pinched nerve symptoms. He may take Rare Earth X-rays to help him design a care plan to restore the proper alignment and mobility of the affected joint through precise chiropractic adjustments.

When the joint is aligned correctly, pressure on the nerve pathway is relieved, allowing the pathway to open up so the nerves can pass through without restriction or irritation. When the impingement and pressure on the nerves have been corrected, your pain is eliminated.

In some cases, a single adjustment can provide immediate relief. In other cases, there is swelling that may take some time to subside before you feel complete relief.
