November 12, 2021

A pinched nerve can be one of the most debilitating pains imaginable. The most appropriate treatment for nerve compression depends on many factors, including the cause and location of your symptoms as well any medical history you may have. Rest can give inflammation enough time to heal by letting it do its job without interference from other sources like activity or motion which will help speed up recovery.

Fortunately, there are many non-surgical treatments for pinched nerves that can help ease your pain and get you back on your feet. 

Some of these remedies include:

  • physical therapy
  • massage therapy
  • acupuncture
  • chiropractic care
  • and more conservative treatments…

These treatments work by releasing pressure in the affected areas which helps to reduce inflammation or pressure applied to the nerve itself. If you have a pinched nerve or are experiencing any other type of pain don’t hesitate to give these therapies a try because they could make all the difference in healing your body.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Pinched Nerves?

Nerve entrapment can be caused when pressure or irritation is produced on the path of a nerve.  A chiropractic doctor has been professionally trained to use techniques to remove the pressure from the nerve.  This can be done by changing the motion of a joint or even the function of muscle in the area.

Some of the  Best Exercises To Relieve Pinched Nerves

Some exercises are proposed to help alleviate the pain caused by a pinched nerve but you should consult your doctor before trying these stretches and exercises:

  • Knee to chest
  • Gentle stretch
  • Gluteal stretch
  • Range of motion

Please make sure you do not worsen your symptoms or cause more pain. When engaging in these stretches, lay on a yoga mat, towel, or carpet. Each time you stretch, you should perform two to three repetitions. Take deep breaths as you stretch.
