Pinched Nerve - Chiropractor Bozeman
The term "pinched nerve" is a generalized phrase to associate a variety of conditions from spinal misalignments to osteoarthritis and disc herniations.
Often times, what is known as a pinched nerve is actually an inflamed nerve, that is irritated and not actually pinched. In most cases, these nerves become irritated and inflamed when the bones of the spine are not in proper position, and are not moving and functioning properly. This condition, known as subluxation or spinal misalignment, is the specialty of a doctor of chiropractic and chiropractic adjustments have great results in treating this condition.
There are some instances when nerves do in fact become "pinched", such as in Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Sciatica, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In these cases, a muscle spasm, inflammation, or injury can cause the nerve and surrounding tissues to become compressed, and this can result in the pinching or shooting pain. Treating these conditions are more complex, however usually respond very well to chiropractic care.
A proper diagnosis for the cause is very important for any form of pain. This is especially important after chronic or long lasting nerve pain is present. This can lead to permanent nerve damage, and it is very important not to let this happen to you If you have been told or feel that you have a "pinched nerve" it is important that you seek professional care from a chiropractic doctor as soon as possible.
