A pinched nerve occurs when a nerve is compressed or in an abnormal position. While pinched nerves are fairly common, pinched nerve pain can be extremely painful. A pinched nerve can be caused by any number of things, such as lifting heavy objects incorrectly, having improper posture, or simply twisting or turning the wrong way. Many people just assume that pinched nerve pain will eventually go away on its own, but it often doesn’t. That’s because pinched nerves can be caused by spinal misalignments, or vertebrae that are out of place, which put pressure on the nerves and cause them to be compressed. Pinched nerve pain can cause numbness, tingling, and a whole lot of pain. You may want to reach for medication to simply find relief from pinched nerve pain, but that relief is only short lived. As soon as the medication wears off, your pain will almost certainly come back. Find long-term relief for pinched nerve pain from a Franklin chiropractor who can address the root cause of the issue, spinal misalignments.

What Can Chiropractic Care Do For My Pinched Nerve Pain?

While you may have tried just about everything to correct pinched nerve pain, consider chiropractic care from Franklin chiropractor Dr. Devan Arman to ease pain and find relief. Dr. Arman will examine the spine to locate spinal misalignments. Gentle and precise adjustments will correct these misalignments to ensure vertebrae are in proper alignment once again. Once the vertebrae are back in place, it will ease pressure on the nerves to alleviate pain so that you can function without pain once again.

Chiropractic Care Goes Beyond Alleviate Pinched Nerve Pain
