If you are suffering with the pain, numbness, weakness or tingling of a trapped nerve, whether from a recent injury or for many years, (or have been told to ‘live with it’), we will likely be able to help you. Chiropractic can help the majority of people with trapped nerves (whether in the spine or limbs) and is a very popular reason for visiting us. Chiropractic care for nerve related problems is safe, comfortable and effective.
You might be familiar with some of these symptoms – sharp severe pains, electric shocks, pins and needles, weakness, numbness – all of which can vary in how bad they are and where you feel them! It is quite common for spinal trapped nerve related problems to be felt in the neck/shoulder/arm and back/hip/leg.
Usually you will find that some things make you worse – such as placing your body in certain positions, or moving your neck/back or a limb a certain way. We appreciate that the pain can be so bad that it stops you from doing more or less anything, let alone living and enjoying a normal life.
There are many types of trapped nerve that we can help you with around your body. Two of the most common are sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome. The most common cause is that one or more of the bones in your spine can become stuck and out of position. This interferes with the nerves that live in your spine and come out of it and into almost every part of your body. Nerves can also become trapped between layers of muscle and soft tissues. Trapped nerves can also cause you to suffer from muscle spasm.
Other problems may also cause trapped nerves to your mid back pain, including spondylosis, osteoarthritis, disc injuries, and as part of low back and neck. If this is your case, you can still be helped with Chiropractic care.
We offer Chiropractic care which
1) helps relieve your problem,
2) corrects the underlying cause, and
3) prevents it returning so that you as a whole stay well and healthy instead.
