Sacramento CA Chiropractor Explains Pinched Nerves

Chiropractic Sacramento CA Frozen Shoulder

Pinched Nerves in Sacramento CA can be extremely painful. They can get in the way of normal activities and even cause pain while sitting or resting.

What are Pinched Nerves?

Nerves are pinched when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons, this normally causes pain or discomfort.

The nervous system is connected throughout our bodies, which allows organs to function properly and a person to respond to stimuli. Pinched nerves are usually caused by either a joint that is pressing on the nerve, or, in many cases, by a bulging disc, herniated disc, or tight muscles.

Pinched nerve symptom severity can vary widely from very mild to excruciating.

Our patient Johnny had a major loss of muscle function and decreased sensation.

What are common symptoms caused by pinched nerves?

Pinched nerve signs and symptoms include:

  • Numbness or decreased sensation in the area supplied by the nerve
  • Sharp, aching, or burning pain, which may radiate outward
  • Tingling, pins and needles sensations (paresthesia)
  • Muscle weakness in the affected area
  • Frequent feeling that a foot or hand has "fallen asleep"

The problems related to a pinched nerve may be worse when you're sleeping.

Can Chiropractic Therapy in Sacramento CA Help?

A chiropractor can use adjustments to release a pinched nerve, correcting the root cause of the issue. At Barham Chiropractic, we practice several techniques and protocols designed to relieve the pressure off the nerves.

Chiropractic care relieves pain by readjusting the bones, soothing the muscles, and easing the pressure on nerves. Once there is alignment in the spine nerve blocks are removed. Chiropractic adjustments even cause blood to be able to transport oxygen and other nutrients throughout the body more effectively.

How long does it take a chiropractor to fix a pinched nerve?

Chiropractic patients can experience pain relief as soon as the first visit. To get long-lasting results patients need to receive care for at least four weeks and may have to make lifestyle changes to prevent the nerves from being pinched again.

Regular visits to a chiropractor can help a pinched nerve decompress and even prevent future damage.

Give us a call to see how we can help you.

We would love to celebrate your success.
