Pinched Nerves and Chiropractic Therapy

Pinched nerves, also referred to as compressed nerves, are common causes of back pain. Pinched nerves are also associated with disc herniation. Chiropractic therapy has proven to alleviate the back pain caused by pinched nerves naturally and effectively.

What Is a Pinched Nerve?

The term “pinched nerve” is a colloquial term and not a true medical term. It is used to describe one type of damage or injury to a nerve or set of nerves. The injury may result from compression, constriction, or stretching. Symptoms include numbness, “pins and needles” or burning sensations, and pain radiating outward from the injured area. One of the most common examples of a single compressed nerve is the feeling of having a foot or hand “fall asleep.” A “pinched nerve” frequently is associated with pain in the neck or lower back. This type of pain can be caused by inflammation or pressure on the nerve root as it exits the spine.
