Pinched Nerve Treatment at Askenas Chiropractic
If you are experiencing shooting pains, unexplained aches, and strange neurological dysfunctions, you may be suffering from a common condition known as a pinched nerve. Nerve impingement interferes with your body's internal communications, causing everything from intense discomfort and loss of function to systemic health complaints. Fortunately, we can help relieve that pressure without using invasive techniques such as surgery. Here at Askenas Chiropractic in Pearl River, we use natural, non-surgical healing modalities to restore the flow of communications to pinched nerves.
Pinched Nerve Causes and Symptoms
The human nervous system is a vastly complex communications network, with the spinal cord serving as the central hub for signals to and from the brain. Major nerve roots branch out from the spinal cord into smaller nerves that serve every part of the body. But in the case of a pinched nerve, some neighboring structure is pressing against the nerve, squeezing off the flow of signals. Compression of a major nerve root can affect signaling in some or all of the smaller nerves that branch off from that nerve root. Common causes of pinched nerves include:
- Degenerative disc disease, including bulging discs that pinch spinal nerve roots
- Spinal stenosis, which can compress the spinal cord itself
- Spinal alignment problems or acute injuries that push bones too close to nerves
- Swelling of the soft tissues surrounding a nerve, as in the median nerve compression of carpal tunnel syndrome
Symptoms of a pinched nerve can include pain, tingling, loss of muscle control, or loss of sensation in the body part served by the nerve in question. Examples include the arm and hand symptoms of cervical radiculopathy and the leg and foot symptoms of sciatica. Nerve compression can even affect your vital signs and organ function.
Non-Surgical Answers from Our Pearl River Chiropractor
Bring your neurological issues to our chiropractor in Pearl River, Dr. Todd Askenas. An examination of your musculoskeletal system can reveal the points and underlying causes of nerve impingement. Chiropractic adjustment can help by correcting alignment imbalances that promote nerve compression. Our non-surgical spinal decompression therapy can relieve pressure caused by disc problems. Laser therapy can ease the soft tissue swelling that sometimes causes nerve impingement, while corrective exercises and lifestyle changes can help you maintain healthier postural practices, thus reducing your risk for future nerve impingement problems.
