Pinched Nerves

Pinched Nerve Treatment With Chiropractic Care

If you believe that you may have a pinched nerve causing pain, tingling, weakness or numbness, then it's time to visit your chiropractor at Meek Integrative Health Center in Springfield, MO to have our experts restore normalcy to your life as quickly as possible.


Squeezed nerves happen when undue pressure is placed on a nerve by tissues around it like muscles or tendons and even bones, which messes up the function of the nerves.

This can happen at various areas of your body like the back of your leg due to a herniated disk in the lower section of your spine.

In the same way your hand and fingers can get pain or numbness if a nerve is pinched in your wrist.

Our chiropractor uses conservative treatments and recommends rest, which allows you to recoup as early as a few days and sometimes a few weeks.

Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve

If you experience numbness or diminished feeling in any area of your body supplied by the nerve, or burning pain, pins and needles, you may have a squeezed nerve.

You should visit us for chiropractic care if the symptoms occur over several days and are non-responsive to home treatments.  

Pinched Nerve Causes

Pressure on a nerve by surrounding tissues is the main cause for a nerve to be pinched. A nerve root can become condensed by a herniated spinal disk and you may need to see a chiropractor.

If it is a carpal tunnel syndrome situation, a mixture of tissues might be liable for a contraction of the median nerve of the carpal tunnel, comprising inflamed tendon sheaths inside the tunnel, the expanded bone that restricts the tunnel, or a clotted ligament.

Numerous circumstances may result in tissue condensing a nerve such as obesity, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, work stress, or your recreational activities.

Risk Elements

Here are some circumstances that may heighten your risk of encountering a pinched nerve:

  1. Sex- for women in particular since their carpal tunnels are tinier than men's.
  2. Bone spurs, which chill the spine.
  3. Rheumatoid arthritis, which condenses nerves, primarily in your joints.
  4. Thyroid disease increases the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.
  5. Diabetes, which boosts the risk of nerve compression.

Other causes are pregnancy, overuse of the joints, obesity, and prolonged rest.

To prevent a squeezed nerve do not maintain any position for a lengthy period and include strength and mobility workouts into your normal exercise strategies.

Restrict repetitive movements and take regular breaks when participating in these actions. Also

keep a healthy weight.
