Can a Chiropractor help with a Pinched Nerve?
A pinched nerve is generally a nerve that has been irritated or injured as it exits the spinal canal.
A pinched nerve be the result of a disc injury, degenerative changes to the spine or mechanical dysfunction of the spine for example.
Chiropractors can use a variety of treatments and management strategies to help their patients with nerve irritation ("pinched nerves"). Including hands on "manual therapy" such as specific spinal adjustments and mobilizing techniques. Often, adjunctive treatments such as cold laser and acupuncture can assist the Chiropractor to reduce the nerve pain.
Another effective technique involves the application of specific stretching designed to reduce the tension on the nerve as it travels through tense soft tissues. This is commonly referred to as "nerve flossing" and represents another technique commonly used by chiropractors. This can improve their range of motion and reduce pain.
The Chiropractor will also design a customized exercise plan to help stabilize the spine and further promote flexibility and mobility.
