Chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy from Mindbody Med in Seattle can help relieve pain associated with pinched nerves. If you are experiencing pain, we recommend seeking treatment right away because this condition traditionally only gets worse over time. We will perform a combination of treatment options that can soothe chronic pain and start to repair permanent damage.
What Is A Pinched Nerve?
A nerve becomes pinched when pressure is placed on the nerves surrounding the bones, cartilage, muscles, and tendons. Even something as simple as pregnancy, sleeping in the same position or gaining weight can make you more susceptible to developing this condition. Your pain may have started from an injury, but it also may have occurred because of a pre-existing or new condition.
- Repetitive Motions
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Spinal Stenosis
- Weight Gain
- Bone Spurs
Everyday Habits Could Aggravate Your Pain
Other common causes of pinched nerves have to do with your work or lifestyle. If you work at a desk all day or have a labor-intensive job that requires repetitive motions, that might be the source of your suffering. Most desk chairs are not ergonomic and many people with office jobs have terrible posture and sit for many hours. A standing desk, new chair, or posture brace may help prevent further injury and bring relief.
Identify The Warning Signs
A pinched nerve can be hard to diagnose on your own, but typically the first warning sign is a painful tingling sensation followed by numbness in the affected area. If some of these symptoms sound familiar, come in for a thorough medical history and diagnosis to be sure you’re getting the proper care.
- Shooting Back Pain
- Constant Aching
- Pins & Needles
- Weak Muscles
- Muscle Spasms
- Hot Or Burning Pain
Nerve Pain Can Be Relentless
This condition can cause you to lose feeling in any one of your limbs for days, months, or—if left untreated—permanently. Back nerve pain can be particularly debilitating. So, it’s important to get treatment as soon as possible. Why suffer needlessly or risk permanent damage?
