Pinched Nerve Q & A

What is a pinched nerve?

A pinched nerve is a compressed nerve from inflammation or structural changes in the surrounding tissue.

Your nerves serve as the communication highway between your body and brain. If you have a pinched nerve, there’s a disruption in communication, causing pain sensations or other health problems.

IllumINNATE Walk-In Family Chiropractic understands the importance of uninterrupted communication between the body and brain. They perform chiropractic care to find and correct subluxations that cause pinched nerves.

My shoulder feels numb. Could I have a pinched nerve?

Shoulder numbness is a symptom you may have if you have a pinched nerve in the neck. Pinched nerves may occur anywhere in the body, but most often affect the spine, including the neck and lower back. Other symptoms of pinched nerves in the spine include:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in your arms or legs
  • Muscle weakness
  • Difficulty walking or balancing

Pinched nerves in the lower back may cause sciatica, a type of nerve pain that radiates into the back of the leg. 

Your spine is your body’s central information highway. Spinal correction is at the core of chiropractic care at IllumINNATE Walk-In Family Chiropractic.

What can I expect during a chiropractic evaluation for a pinched nerve?

You can expect a thorough evaluation of your pinched nerve from the certified chiropractors at IllumINNATE Walk-In Family Chiropractic. They want to find and correct the source of your pain so you can get back to doing the things you love.

Your chiropractor reviews your symptoms and medical history and asks about your daily routine. They perform a physical exam and may request X-rays of your spine to determine the cause of your pinched nerve.

Taking a holistic and collaborative approach, they also want to know your treatment goals.

What treatments can relieve my pinched nerve? 

IllumINNATE Walk-In Family Chiropractic customizes treatment plans for pinched nerves based on the location, symptoms, and overall health. They perform gentle and specific spine manipulations to alleviate stress on the compressed nerve and promote healing.

They also offer spinal decompression, a noninvasive therapy that gently stretches your spine, relieving pressure on the pinched nerve and allowing blood to flow to the area to nourish and heal any damage.
