Pinched Nerve

A pinch of the skin can hurt like crazy. Not only does a pinched nerve have the same intense pain, but the pain does not relent and often radiates to other areas of the body. Stop struggling with the debilitating pain and numbness, see a pinched nerve specialist at Oak Brook Medical Group.

What Is a Pinched Nerve?

Excess pressure applied by surrounding bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons results in a nerve being “pinched.” This can occur as a result of injury, but that is not the only cause. A pinched nerve can also happen because of:

  • Repetitive motion
  • Staying in a constant position (Example: holding a device for long periods)
  • Inflammatory disease
  • Weight gain/obesity

When Do I Need a Pinched Nerve Specialist?

Symptoms that indicate you may need pinched nerve treatment are:

  • Sharp, stinging, burning pain
  • Pain that radiates out
  • Numbness
  • Tingling sensation (like when hand “falls asleep”)
  • Weakness

What Type of Pinched Nerve Treatment Is Available?

If inflammation is the cause of the pinched nerve, reducing the swelling with ice and NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatories) may be enough to release the compression of the nerve. If a broken bone or torn ligament is pinching the nerve, it may require immobilization and more intense therapy.

Pinched Nerve Treatment Through Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is an excellent solution to pinched nerves and the resulting pain. Sometimes a simple adjustment can align the spine and put your musculoskeletal system back in place. Patients will often feel immediate relief.

In more severe cases, small adjustments done over time, along with icing, rest, and possibly anti-inflammatories, more gently ease the compression of the nerve.

Pinched Nerve Q & A

What is a pinched nerve?

Essentially, a pinched nerve is when pressure is applied to a nerve, causing pain, numbness and tingling in the surrounding area. Though almost any nerve in the body can be susceptible to this condition, it is most common in the neck and back. Usually, pressure occurs because of a disc herniation, but other causes like excessive weight gain, pregnancy, and certain diseases can also cause a pinched nerve to occur.

What are the symptoms of a pinched nerve?

When pressure is applied to a nerve, many patients describe the initial pain as numbness or a tingling sensation. Pain can follow as more pressure is continuously applied to the nerve. Conditions like carpal tunnel, sciatica, and neck pain can be the result of a pinched nerve. If you find that your quality of life has decreased because you are always trying to find measures to rid yourself of the pain, then it is time to see a medical professional.

What can I do to fix the issue?

Sometimes, pinched nerves work themselves out as inflammation goes down, but if you have a herniated disc, then the solution may not be as simple as waiting it out. You can try home remedies to reduce the amount of pain you feel, but you may find that they don’t always work. The best solution for you is to see a professional pain management specialist who can help you discover new treatments to aid in reducing your pain.

Can a chiropractor help me feel less pain?

Your chiropractor at Oak Brook Medical Group is one of the expert medical professionals who can help you manage the pain you feel from a pinched nerve. If the issue is a herniated disc, the chiropractor may use a series of adjustments to realign that area of your spine. Adjustments will take the pressure off of the nerve, which can relieve you of pain.
