The main symptom experienced with pinched nerves is pain. Pinched nerves can also cause numbness, weakness, or even a tingling sensation in parts of the body which surround the affected nerves. For instance, if the pinched nerve is in your back you may experience pain in your buttocks and back and down into your leg. One of the most prominent symptoms of pinched nerves, however, is back pain.
Risk Factors for a Pinched Nerve Developing
Your risk of developing a pinched nerve may be increased by certain factors. For example, if you are living with osteoarthritis the risk factor of developing a pinched nerve is relatively high, since joints become enlarged increasing the risk of bone spurs. The likelihood of a pinched nerve developing can be increased by a person’s body mass, posture, age, as well as genetic background.
Get Help from a Chiropractor
Chiropractic treatment for a pinched nerve is to decrease pressure on the affected nerve. Using chiropractic adjustments a chiropractor is able to help with the decompression of the disc. If more treatment is needed, traction machines or decompression machines are also used to help relieve back and neck pain even more.
