Pinched Nerve Shoulder Treatment in Waterford, MI
A pinched nerve encompasses any compressed, irritated or inflamed nerve in the body. And, because nerves extend from the brain and spinal cord, a pinched nerve sends you warning signals that you should not ignore.
Nerve damage from a compressed or irritated nerve can range from minor to severe. The good news is if diagnosed and treated quickly, it can be reversible with chiropractic care. However, the bad news is if left untreated, nerve damage can be irreversible. With that in mind, it’s crucial to seek chiropractic care as soon as any warning signs appear.
A pinched nerve is when a nerve becomes caught between ligaments, tendons, and bones. When they become pinched, symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and pain occurs.
Shoulder pain can inhibit a wide range of activities, from picking up your child, to gardening, and to doing housework. It’s important to find the root of shoulder pain because often it’s the result of a pinched nerve in the neck. Symptoms are the pain, numbness, weakness, and tingling that’s often described as “pins and needles,” in cases, radiating through the shoulder, down the arm, and into the fingers.
Chiropractors are specially trained in nervous system issues, so a pinched nerve often responds well to chiropractic, when diagnosed early and combined with other physical therapies such as exercises and stretches. Pinched nerve shoulder treatment begins with an examination of the spine, noting any misaligned vertebrae, which are also known as subluxations. Shoulder pain can be the result of vertebrae out of alignment in the neck.
A chiropractor can prescribe a treatment plan involving spinal manipulation – and through either using the hands or a unique device – these gentle, non-invasive adjustments can put the vertebrae back into proper position, alleviating the pressure on the affected nerve. Once these nerve blocks are removed through regular visits, the improved circulation will reduce the shoulder pain and boost movement.
