PINCHED NERVE TREATMENT in Vancouver
Pinched nerve describes a type of injury to a nerve or set of nerves. The injury may result from compression, constriction, or stretching. Symptoms include numbness or burning sensations, and pain radiating outward from the injured area. One of the most common examples of a single compressed nerve is the feeling of having your foot or hand fall asleep. Otherwise, pain or discomfort itself is a good indication.
A nerve can be 'pinched' at various points along its route, each nerve having its own characteristic 'weak points'. The most common areas are at the exit point from the spine. They tend to get pinched, compressed, and pulled at these points.
A pinched nerve often results from faulty spinal mechanics due to the accumulation of stress and tension to the spine. This is best treated with a chiropractor assessment accompanied by hands-on treatment.
