What Is a Pinched Nerve?

The body uses a complex system of nerves to carry motor and sensory signals throughout the body. Nerves start in the brain and carry motor signals to the arms and legs, controlling coordination in space. Then, the rest of the body uses sensory nerves to transmit information to the brain regarding position, pain, temperature, and pressure.

Because nerves travel all over the body, there are plenty of opportunities for them to get pinched, compressed, or irritated. If one of your nerves gets pinched, this can lead to irritation, impacting its ability to function properly. There are a few common locations for pinched nerves to appear.

What Are the Most Common Causes and Symptoms of Pinched Nerves?

There are a few common locations in which a pinched nerve might arise. These include:

  • A Pinched Nerve in the Back: The spinal cord is responsible for protecting nerves as they leave the brain and exit throughout the rest of the body. When nerves leave the spine in between the vertebrae, they might get compressed. This is what happens with a herniated disc, which causes shooting pains to travel down the back and into the legs.
  • A Pinched Nerve in the Shoulder: A pinched nerve in the shoulder can lead to arm weakness, numbness, and tingling. This can take place in contact sports following a blow to the neck or shoulder (called a stinger).
  • A Pinched Nerve in the Hip: A pinched nerve in the hip can develop due to poor posture while sitting or standing. This is usually a condition that develops slowly, over time, and can lead to patches of numbness around the pelvis.
  • A Pinched Nerve in the Leg: A pinched nerve in the leg can take many forms; however, one of the most common causes is sciatica. The compression of the sciatic nerve can lead to leg numbness, weakness, and tingling.

Pinched Nerve Treatment in Aurora

If you are looking for pinched nerve relief, then we can help you. We leverage chiropractic care to help you recover from pinched nerves. Our first job is to figure out where the pinched nerve is located. We will take a thorough history to learn about your symptoms. Then, we will conduct a complete physical exam to look for signs of pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling.

After we have isolated the nerve, we will use chiropractic care to alleviate compression and irritation. We can use adjustments and manipulations to realign the body's joints properly. Then, we can also use decompression to increase the amount of space through which the nerve can flow. Finally, if your nerve has been pinched by a muscular knot, we can use massage therapy and physical therapy to relax and release this knot, freeing the nerve in the process. Our comprehensive treatment provides you with effective pinched nerve relief.
