Pinched Nerve

Seattle Pinched Nerve

Are you dealing with pain from a pinched nerve? Don’t let the pain stop you from enjoying life. Our expert chiropractors in Seattle will design a custom pinched nerve treatment plan for you, including chiropractic adjustments, healthy exercise, and diet regimens to help you get relief from your suffering, but, more importantly, to avoid irreversible problems like nerve compression, which can cause permanent damage. Whether your symptoms are minor or severe, it is important to obtain a diagnosis and begin a comprehensive therapy program.

What Is A Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve occurs when pressure is placed on a nerve, which can cause numbness, tingling, and pain. It could potentially improve with rest and medication, but for some, the symptoms can be too severe. If the pain doesn’t improve within a week, it is recommended that you seek treatment.

What Causes Pinched Nerves

  • There are many ways a pinched nerve can occur, including:
  • Improper Spinal Alignment Or Spinal Subluxation
  • Injured Or Overworked Muscles
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Injury Or Inflammation Compressing The Nerves

We have extensive experience treating Seattle-area patients who suffer from pinched nerves due to all of these conditions. We offer specialized treatment options based on the reason for your nerve compression and your health history.

Symptoms Of A Pinched Nerve

Pinched Nerve Treatment BallardAlthough lower back pain and neck pain are the most common symptoms of nerve compression, there are a variety of other effects that pinched nerves can have on your body.

  • You may experience radiating pain to your fingers, hands, wrists, and elbows, as well as sciatic leg pain.
  • Some of the patients we see feel burning sensations, similar to “pins and needles”, as well as tingling or numbness.
  • If you experience weakness while you are performing physical activities, that may also be a sign of a pinched nerve.

Early diagnosis of a pinched nerve is crucial to prevent permanent damage. We offer same-day and emergency chiropractic care, as well as convenient daytime, night, and weekend appointments.

How Are Pinched Nerves Diagnosed

A doctor may diagnose a pinched nerve by conducting a physical examination. They may assess sensation, reflexes, and muscle strength. Pinched nerves can also be diagnosed through image testing, including X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, which can also help to locate the pinched nerve and any other potential issues in the spine.

Should I Seek Treatment for a Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve can be a debilitating condition and, in some cases, can also lead to muscle weakness and muscle wasting. Treatment can help to relieve the pain and pressure on the nerve and help to prevent further damage. Treatment options include:
