Chiropractic Services for Pinched Nerves
Do you experience pain and discomfort caused by pinched nerves? If so, you're not alone as many people have issues with pinched nerves at some point in their lives. Our chiropractors at Discover Integrated Health in Kennesaw and Marietta, GA, help patients that are suffering from pinched nerves using chiropractic care.
What Exactly is a Pinched Nerve?
When your nerve becomes pinched, this means that the flow of electrical signals through it has been blocked or reduced. Also, the nutrients that move between the nerve cell bodies to the membrane to nourish and replenish it can no longer flow freely. When this occurs, the membrane doesn't have a healthy ability to transmit electrical charges and this can cause the nerve fiber to die. After a certain amount of fibers have stopped working it can affect your muscle contraction and your skin will likely feel numb.
What Causes Pinched Nerves?
A pinched nerve may be the result of pressure from a herniated disc or if you have bone spurs from arthritis of the spine. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in the wrist also falls under this category. It can be a temporary issue as a result of strain or a spasm in your muscles.
When Nerve Problems Persist
If you don't find relief within a couple of days, you should consider chiropractic care as a drug-free and non-invasive solution. One of our chiropractors will provide a thorough examination and develop a treatment plan that can aid in your recovery. Pinched nerves can start as merely annoying but turn into something more serious if left untreated.
