Clearwater Chiropractic for Pinched Nerves

Have you been told you have a pinched nerve, or do your symptoms fit the description? The symptoms start with local pain and perhaps a tingling or stinging sensation. This is commonly caused by a neck or back condition. Pinched nerves along your spine can cause numbness and/or tingling in the extremities, for example. Chiropractic treatment can reposition the joints or discs putting pressure on the affected nerve.

A visit to Dr. Monte Venis, your chiropractor in Clearwater, can help reduce and eliminate your pain, numbness, or tingling, thus restoring your health back to normal. Contact us online or give us a call to get started with pinched nerve pain treatment at Back and Neck Pain Center in Clearwater, Florida.

How to Tell If You Have a Pinched Nerve

The body’s nervous system sends pain signals to the brain, and it’s also what controls your movements. Pinched nerve pain often comes with a variety of discomfort and symptoms that you may not even realize are related.

Initially, pinched nerve pain probably feels sharp and acute. It can happen in the lower back (the lumbar nerve), the upper back (spinal nerve or cervical radiculopathy), or in the back and legs (the sciatic nerve).

Only a doctor’s diagnosis can tell if you have a pinched nerve, herniated disc, or other nerve or spinal injury. Patients with pinched nerve pain often report:

  • A “pins and needles” feeling
  • Pain or difficulty with normal tasks
  • Numbness or unexplained muscle weakness
  • Occasional sharp pains
  • Pain that radiates through the arms and legs
  • Neck stiffness

What Does Pinched Nerve Mean?

People use the term pinched nerve even though the nerve is only physically pinched in some cases. More specifically, what you have may be an irritated nerve or a subluxation, which means the nerve’s communication is distorted.

Dr. Venis will advise you if you have a compressed lesion (a pinched nerve), or a facilitative lesion, which means the nerve has been stretched or twisted.

Pinched Nerve Pain Treatment Options

Chiropractic treatments are not the only option for dealing with pinched nerves. Most people would prefer to try a natural approach before resorting to surgery.

Spinal adjustments by a chiropractor can free the nerve and stop bone or other hard tissue from rubbing against it improperly. Dr. Venis may also recommend a personalized physical therapy regimen, which can be especially helpful to strengthen the muscles in the affected area and prevent another pinched nerve. Anti-inflammatory treatments may also be recommended.

Clearwater Chiropractic for Pinched Nerves

At our chiropractor clinic in Clearwater, we offer a number of treatments for pinched nerve pain. Chiropractic adjustments consist of specific, targeted motions and thrusts to adjust the joints and discs exactly where the pinched nerve is located. The Cox flexion-distraction technique involves lying on a flexing table to decompress the lower back lumbar vertebrae.

We can also incorporate ultrasound or electrical stimulation and various modalities of massage and physical therapy. Dr. Venis will help you choose the best path toward living healthy and pain-free with chiropractic care for pinched nerve pain.
