If your nerves are compromised, they may be causing you pain. A pinched nerve is a condition that can be caused by the spine, peripheral joints or issues such as improper circulation.

The most common cases at our office are pinched nerves caused by the compression of discs or ligaments.

Pinched Nerve Signs and Symptoms

  • Numbness or decreased sensation in the area near the nerve
  • Sharp, aching or burning pain, which may radiate outward
  • Tingling, pins and needles sensations
  • Muscle weakness in the affected area
  • Frequent feeling that a foot or hand has “fallen asleep”

Symptoms related to a pinched nerve may be worse when you’re sleeping.

A number of conditions may cause tissue to compress a nerve or nerves, including:

  • Injury
  • Arthritis
  • Stress from repetitive work
  • Hobbies or sports activities
  • Obesity

There are also some people who’s circumstance cause them to be more vulnerable to experiencing a pinched nerve, including those who are diabetic, pregnant, or require prolonged best rest.

Getting on the Path to Better Health

We’ll start by assessing your needs, such as looking at your posture and performing hundreds of tests. These evaluations are designed to get to the cause of your pinched nerve. When found, we will correct your structure as needed through manipulations. Tight muscles that are creating compression will be released. If ligaments are involved, they’ll be gently stretched.

Our patients typically respond quite quickly, seeing a resolution of an acute episode in 2-6 weeks. Subacute cases take about 3-6 weeks, while chronic cases take six weeks to three months.

Our team will also provide advice on maintaining good posture and how to incorporate strength and flexibility exercises into your regular exercise program.
