Pinched Nerves

Why this resource is helpful:

Have you ever accidentally contorted your body in a way that resulted in a sharp pain that decreased mobility in your neck or arm? If so, you might have experienced a pinched nerve. Pinched nerves can occur anywhere along the spine, including the upper, mid, and lower back. They can even happen in any joint of your body. When ample pressure is applied to a nerve by the surrounding tissues, bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons, a pinched nerve is formed. This pressure intervenes with the nerve"s normal function, causing sharp pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness. Our practice knows all about the dreaded pinched nerve and how painful it is doing the simplest tasks. Sometimes the nerve can move back into place naturally. However, if the pinched nerve is severe enough, you will need spinal adjustments to correct it. In some cases, surgery may even be necessary to relieve pinched nerve pain.

Symptoms of a pinched nerve include:

Lower back pain
Numbness, tingling, or burning sensation in your arms, legs, fingers, or toes and which may radiate outward
Pain radiating along your spine
Severe headaches or migraines
A tingling or pins and needles sensation called paresthesia
Pain that shoots down your arm or leg
A feeling that your foot or hand has "fallen asleep"
Neck pain
Muscle weakness in the affected area
