Dr. Jay McClanhan of Dr. J Chiropractic & Wellness Center treats a wide variety of back and spinal conditions. This includes pinched nerves. Have you ever twisted or moved your body in a way that resulted in sharp pain? Did it restrict mobility in that region? You probably pinched a nerve. These manifest in any spot along the spine, affecting your lower, middle, and upper back. Your joints are vulnerable too. In some cases, the pinched nerve resolves itself. If it doesn’t, your Nitro, WV, chiropractor corrects it with spinal adjustments.
If you’re worried that you’ve pinched a nerve, don’t panic. Evaluate the area for these symptoms:
-Extreme migraines or headaches
-Radiating pain in the arms and legs
-Pain in the spine
-Burning, tingling, or numbness in the extremities
-Tenderness in the lower back
There are a few common causes of a pinched nerve. Most are due to other spinal conditions. These include subluxation, osteoarthritis, disc herniation, and disc degeneration. Many of these afflictions are asymptomatic at the beginning. It’s why regular chiropractic care is recommended. Your Nitro, WV, chiropractor detects any issues before they can truly manifest.
At your appointment, Dr. McClanahan evaluates your spine. He can easily determine the area of the pinched nerve. He then moves forward with a spinal realignment. This is done quickly and painlessly with either his hands or a small tool. After, your pain will subside in a few days.
