Pinched Nerve Treatment
A chiropractor will treat your pain by realigning your body, which might involve manipulation of your spine, or legs, arms, and neck, with chiropractic adjustments. You'll also be treated with rehabilitative exercises or physiotherapy (using ultrasound treatment, electrotherapy, or ice packs) to reduce inflammation, pain, or muscle spasms. It may require more than a single treatment to get long-lasting results.
Acupuncture can be used successfully to treat a pinched nerve. It will release blockages in the energy flow. When a blockage occurs in a meridian channel, an inflammation and swelling can cause compression on a nerve. By releasing the blockage and resuming the natural energy flow throughout the body, the surrounding tissue will relax, followed by the nerve.
Using a suction-type effect, the pinched nerve in your neck or low back can be released from compression. With non surgical spinal decompression, our chiropractors will utilize equipment in the office that will work to create a negative pressure in the space between the two vertebrae that are pinching the nerve. Because the spinal fluid, oxygen and water must reach the inter-vertebral space, the use of this treatment may require five or six sessions before you experience relief.
The goal of the exercises from the physical therapy for the pinched nerve is to provide you with a way of strengthening and stretching the muscles that are in the area of the pinched nerve. Each exercise is designed to provide for a specific, necessary movement like this. By stretching the muscle, you'll be relieving the pressure that is on the pinched nerve.
