Many of the body’s ailments can be attributed to pinched nerves. Put simply, this means that when nerves are under pressure due to inflammation or other dislocated body parts, they are less effective at transmitting messages to and from the brain. At Back to Basics Chiropractic in Kennewick, we offer a variety of treatments for relieving pinched nerves throughout the body.
Pinched nerves can cause severe pain, but that isn’t the only symptom. Sometimes, a pinch will be felt as tingling or numbness. These sensations may be felt at the location of the pinch or they may radiate outward toward a part of the body controlled by that nerve. For example, sciatica is compression of the sciatic nerve, which travels from the spinal cord down the thigh. The pinch is often in the spinal column but felt in the leg.
The first part of our treatment will be determining where exactly the pain is coming from. For this, we will need to do imaging tests such as x-rays as well as tactile examinations. Once a pinched nerve has been determined as the cause, we can begin treatment with methods such as adjustments and physical therapy, in order to get the body in the best position from which it can heal itself.
