Pinched Nerve: Symptoms and Chiropractic Treatments
Updated: Sep 10
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. We at Natural Care Chiropractic in Lindenhurst, IL, know all about the dreaded pinched nerve and how painful it can make 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.
Symptoms of a pinched nerve include:
- Numbness, tingling, or burning sensation in your arms, legs, fingers, or toes
- Pain radiating along your spine
- Severe headaches or migraines
- Pain that shoots down your arm or leg
- Neck pain
A pinched nerve can be caused by subluxation, disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, or disc herniation. These are silent afflictions in their beginning stages, which is why it’s important to see a chiropractor regularly. Dr. Freund will re-align your spine in an effort to correct your pinched nerve, but also prevent one from happening again in the future.
