Do you feel a sudden, stabbing pain in your neck or upper back? Maybe it wakes you up in the middle of the night, or it feels like a hot blade while trying to work. Perhaps when you go to pick something up, the pain flares up. Pinched nerves have a way of stopping you right in your tracks. Some minor injuries can go away after a few days. Still, some will continue to linger on, and many will only compound over time resulting in additional injuries and other problems. That is why you need to seek relief from pinched nerve pain at Great Plains Chiropractic in West Fargo. Our team will help address your pinched nerve, reduce the pressure placed on it, and restore your ability to do the things you love.

What Is a Pinched Nerve?

Nerve endings run up and down your spine and throughout the rest of your body. These small nerves send signals to your brain. However, faulty signals can be triggered when something presses on your nerve. Usually, too much pressure on a nerve or a disc that slips out of place causes these signals. The disc then presses on the nerve creating a pinching sensation. You may have a pinched nerve because of an injury, rheumatoid or wrist arthritis, stress from repetitive work, hobbies or sports activities, or obesity. Some patients also experience neck and lower back pain, depending on the affected nerve’s location.

Chiropractic Treatment for Pinched Nerves

Chiropractic care allows for a more natural and healthy approach to healing the body. There are no surgeries or harmful medications involved in treating your condition. Our chiropractors can help realign the spine to relieve your pinched nerves. This will also help improve your ability to avoid other pinched nerves in the future. Our gentle adjustments help the body heal on its own. While over-the-counter medications may temporarily decrease inflammation and pain, the underlying issues will not be appropriately corrected. This is why our chiropractic treatment is necessary.
