This painful condition occurs when a nerve becomes pinched by a joint that is out of alignment, or even by a tight muscle.  It can happen as a result of a whiplash injury, playing sports, or even sleeping wrong.

What Causes a Pinched Nerve?

The truth is, it's usually caused by a combination of both joint and soft tissue problems.  Joints that have been injured, overused, or out of alignment can cause irritation and 'pinching' of the nerves around them.  Repetitive overuse of the muscles can do the same thing, leading to pain and other symptoms.

With repeated overuse, the spine and muscles gradually become stiff and weak.  The joints become progressively more stiff and the muscles and soft tissues slowly near their breaking point.  Then one day you do the wrong thing at the wrong time - sleep wrong, bend over to pick something up, or just move wrong - and all of a sudden you have a pinched nerve (and a lot of pain).


What Are the Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve?

A pinched nerve in the neck will usually cause pain and stiffness, especially with head movement.  Pain, numbness or tingling may also be present in the arms or hands.  In the lower back will cause pain and stiffness in the lower back and hips, which may be worse with sitting, standing, twisting or bending at the waist.  Pain, numbness or tingling may also be present in the legs or feet.  In the middle back you may feel pain, stiffness or muscle spasm i the affected are, as well as pain that radiates out along the ribs.  Coughing, sneezing or movement may make your symptoms worse.


Effective Treatment for Pinched Nerve Pain

Chiropractic can help get joints 'unstuck' and back in alignment, taking pressure off nerves and relieving stiffness and pain.  Chiropractors are 'joint experts' and have had great success at relieving this type of pain.  In some cases pinched nerves may be caused by a bulging disc or herniation, which can also benefit from Chiropractic care.

Active Release Techniques is an incredibly effective method to treat the muscle and soft tissue component of this type of injury.  In fact, ART is considered the Gold Standard for treating soft tissue injuries.  It can help break up scar tissue and relax muscle spasm, reducing irritation to the nerves and eliminating pain.  Most people feel significant relief from just a few treatments.
