What Causes a Pinched Nerve?
Pinched nerves can be caused by direct trauma to the nerve brought about by injury or accident and through movements that involve sudden twists and turns. Repetitive physical movement over an extended period of time is also a cause for pinched nerve pain. Repeated improper joint motion can often be traced to spinal misalignments that compress surrounding nerves inhibiting normal spinal reflexes. Disc bulges and disc herniation in addition to and other related impairments with bones and ligaments eventually cause inflammation near the nerve resulting in mobility problems. Action Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center bases chiropractic care treatments for pinched nerves on precise spinal alignments that correct imbalanced nervous systems.
Pinched Nerve Neck Pain
The spinal discs in your neck act as cushiony protective shock absorbers between a complex structure of tiny bones, tendons, ligaments and muscle. If these discs become thin and worn down, the surrounding nerves will significantly affect the flexibility of the neck over time and affect every day functioning. Action Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center chiropractors identify the precise location of a degenerative disc problem and loosen the spine to relieve pressure and pain with careful spinal adjustments. Other degenerative conditions such as, osteoarthritis, are responsible for painful nerve compressions and other causes include painful disc herniation and compression of the sciatic nerve that cause pain to radiate down from the lower back through the leg. Pinched nerves that are left untreated often worsen over time and may cause related physical problems that overcompensate for the original problem. Whatever the cause or symptoms, underlying a pinched nerve problem can be effectively treated by a licensed Wheaton chiropractor with spinal adjustments and chiropractic care that promote natural healing and overall wellness.
