What is a Pinched Nerve & Why Should We Have it Treated?

Pinched nerves are incredibly common.  If you have one, you’ll know it can be extremely painful to live with.
We treat many clients suffering with pinched or trapped nerves so we have a lot of experience in this area.
The term “pinched nerve” is used to describe an irritated or inflamed nerve but the nerve itself is not actually pinched.

How do we treat a pinched nerve?

At Spinal Care Clinics Brentwood, we offer all of our clients thorough evaluations before we administer chiropractic treatment for pinched nerve syndrome.

We use digital x-ray equipment and electric treatment benches to isolate the exact cause of your nerve pain, thereby enabling us to provide you with the most effective course of treatment for you.  This treatment would most likely include a combination of chiropractic and massage therapy, preventing long-term nerve irritation or compression.

If untreated, a ‘pinched nerve’ can escalate and lead to permanent nerve damage.

If you think you may have a ‘pinched nerve’ it’s crucial that you seek professional chiropractic care as soon as possible.

“I attended the clinic following a positive review from my daughter. I had been suffering from a painful neck and shoulder. Following my first treatment I have felt such an improvement and now I have completed the course I am completely pain free. I can’t thank them enough.”

“After 3 years of hospital treatment, with no joy, I was told by my chiropractor what the problem was and how he was going to help!
After only 7 weeks of treatment I am able to walk unaided and no longer need the drugs (Which I was told can destroy your nervous system) provided by the hospital! Unbelievable progress!!”

“When I first came to the clinic my neck was very painful and I constantly needed to move around as it hurt when I sat still for long periods of time. My treatments and massages have been fantastic and I am hardly ever in pain anymore. All of the SCC staff are so friendly and accomodating. I always feel very welcome whenever I visit.”

“Here at the Spinal Care Clinics, you have been so professional, knowledgeable and friendly – plus a great listener. Without your help, support and skills I truly believe I wouldn’t be where I am today; painfree, more mobile, have more strength, positivity and feel in control of life in general again.”

What causes a ‘pinched’ nerve?

A ‘pinched nerve’ is usually caused by pressure on the nerve.  So if you’ve been doing any of the following, then this may well be the cause:

  • Repetitive motions
  • Holding your body in one position for long periods of time
  • Herniated spine discs
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica (for more information, see our health condition section on Sciatica)
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Trigger points (these are very tight “knots” of muscle which develop when muscles are either chronically overworked or injured)

What are the symptoms of a ‘pinched nerve’?

  • Pain in the area of compression, such as the neck or lower back
  • Radiating pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Pins and needles or a burning sensation
  • Weakness, especially when active

You may also find these symptoms worsen when you try certain movements, such as turning your head or straining your neck.

Don’t put up with pain, discomfort and loss of mobility for a moment longer.
Reclaiming your flexibility, feeling great again, and living a life without pain is just a few clicks away.
