Pinched Nerve - Chiropractor Bozeman
The term "pinched nerve" is a general phrase associated with a variety of conditions from spinal misalignments to osteoarthritis and disc herniations, and even muscle pain.
Often times, what is known as a pinched nerve is actually a sharp pain from a soft tissue area, or an inflamed nerve that is irritated, but 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 chiropractor's specialty, and chiropractic adjustments have great results 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 involved, but 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. This can lead to permanent nerve damage, and so it is very important to seek care for resolution of this issue. If you have been told or feel that you have a "pinched nerve" seek care from a chiropractor as soon as possible. Contact us today!
