How Can I Help A Pinched Nerve?

Living with pain of any kind can make our day-today lives much more difficult. As we age, unresolved pain can become harder to navigate in life. Any unresolved pain from younger years is carried with us into adulthood. We are left with two options for pain: management or resolution. We can choose to manage the pain and find ways to help cover it up so the impact is reduced, or we can search for the root cause and remove it at the source.

Adults who carry pain with them typically live a lower quality of life; this is not uncommon! 90% of people suffer from neck pain. When it comes to suffering from radiculopathy (pinched nerve), often our fir

st thoughts are medication to numb the feeling of discomfort (without actually reducing pain at the source), or surgery.

However, neurologically-based chiropractic care is effective while being non-invasive! A recent case study of a 49-year-old man with complaints of neck pain and extreme radiculopathy revealed useful results. He presented to chiropractic care, and subluxation was revealed (interference of the nervous system from misalignments in the spine). Over the course of six months, he presented to care in hopes that removing the interference in the nervous system would allow his body to function optimally. At the end of six months of care, all symptoms of pain were resolved! Ten months after care, he was reevaluated the same results stood – his pain and radiculopathy were gone!

When the body can function optimally, we heal optimally! Pain doesn’t just appear overnight without reason; our body uses pain to alert us that something is wrong. When we listen to our bodies, we can heal from the inside out rather than masking the pain and the underlying issues. Chiropractic care gets to the root of neurological
