Need help from your Clarksburg, Gaithersburg, Potomac, and Urbana, MD, chiropractors?
Have a pinched nerve? You feel the pain of a pinched nerve when the nerve is inflamed due to a misalignment in the body's system. King Chiropractic, which has offices in Clarksburg, Gaithersburg, Potomac, and Urbana, MD, offers state-of-the-art treatments for pinched nerves. This article discusses what a pinched nerve is and how it can be treated.
Pinched Nerve Overview
A pinched nerve occurs when excessive pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues, like tendons, muscles, cartilage, and bones. The pressure may happen from holding your body in one position for a long period of time. Or it may be the result of repetitive motions.
Pinched nerve signs and symptoms include a tingling sensation and numbness. Some people experience a burning sensation in the affected area. Pain may accompany these symptoms and is often described as being sharp.
Pinched nerves can occur at different parts of the body. For instance, a pinched nerve in your wrist can lead to numbness and pain in your fingers and hand. Likewise, a herniated disk in your spine may put pressure on a nerve, causing pain that radiates down the back of your legs.
Pinched Nerve Treatments
At King Chiropractic, with offices in Clarksburg, Gaithersburg, Potomac and Urbana, MD, we will treat your pain by realigning your body, which might involve manipulation of your arms, legs, neck, and spine with chiropractic adjustments. You may require more than a single treatment to get long-lasting results.
You may be treated with rehabilitative exercises to reduce inflammation, muscle spasms, and pain. Rehabilitative exercises may strengthen the back or core muscles and eliminate or decrease pressure on a nerve root.
Many chiropractors offer electrotherapy treatments to their clients. Electrotherapy is the use of electric energy as a medical treatment. The benefits of electrotherapy include an increased range of movement, increased strength and a reduction in pain.
Therapeutic ultrasound is also a widely used and generally accepted treatment modality often used in chiropractic offices. This treatment is used to provide deep heating to the tissues in the body. Therapeutic ultrasound is used to relieve pain and speed up the healing process.
