Voice For Health – Finding Yourself In A Pinch

Dr. FreedmanWhen you experience a “pins and needles” sensation, feel tingly, or suffer from muscle weakness, you may have a “pinched” nerve. Also known as “radiculopathy,” a pinched or compressed nerve occurs when bone, muscle, ligaments, or cartilage press against a nerve. Aside from the potential for significant discomfort or weakness, a pinched nerve in the neck, wrist, or back of the leg can lead to pain that radiates down a limb or numbness and a loss of sensation. While the most common cause of a pinched nerve is an aging spinal disc or a “herniated” (bulging) disc, the risk of a pinched nerve also increases with poor posture, repetitive motion, and obesity. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve the compression.

A pinched nerve in the neck can radiate down the arm, or another in the low back may radiate into the leg. Chiropractors can help relieve these pains by repositioning the bones, relaxing the muscles, and reducing the pressure on nerves. To schedule an appointment for chiropractic treatment, please call FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC at 617-472-4220. We see infants, children, pregnant women, adults and seniors. We also accept most major insurance plans. Our office is located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. “Cervical radiculopathy” (a pinched nerve in the neck) can produce burning or sharp pain that radiates into the shoulder, as well as muscle weakness and numbness running down the arm to the hand.
