Nerve pinching is probably one of the leading causes of pain in the USA. It can cause problems ranging from pain to decreased sensation on the affected body parts. As a NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City, Dr. Pete has welcomed countless patients into our office because of a pinched nerve. Many of them managed to carry on with their lives, no longer struggling from the usual symptoms of nerve compression.
You might be wondering, is it okay to leave a pinched nerve to heal on its own? But what happens if the problem persists for months or years? Does it lead to a more severe health concern?
The nerves serve as the primary communication lines between your different body parts and your brain. On average, it takes about 156-270 miles per hour for each nerve impulse to reach its destination. Sadly, the signal transmission messes up when a bone, muscle, tendon, or cartilage hurts your nerve roots.
This results in miscommunication between your nervous system and your body. It also causes symptoms like numbness, muscle weakness, or paresthesia. Besides these symptoms, a pinched nerve can also result in the following:
Thankfully, remedies like NUCCA care show promising potential in providing long-term relief for pinched nerves. It’s an innovative and gentle approach to healing that aims to correct misalignment along the neck – a factor that many studies link to the onset of a nerve pinching problem.
