A pinched nerve is something which can be mildly annoying to painfully obvious; depending on the individual and their unique condition. Whether your symptoms are mild, moderate, or severe; we at neurosurgery & Spine Consultants want to take the appropriate action to prevent any condition you’re experiencing from worsening. Neglecting the problem area will most likely only make it worsen over the long term. For this reason, we always take a strong, proactive approach to best guide you to health and wellness once again. Read on to discover the ways we’re able to treat your pinched nerve condition and have you feeling back to normal in due time.
What is a Pinched Nerve Exactly?
A pinched nerve is when there’s too much pressure applied to the nerve by the surrounding tissues and this pressure in turn causes a disruption to the nerve’s functionality. This will often cause pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness and can range from mildly bothersome to extremely painful.
Evaluating Your Pinched Nerve Condition
Pinched nerves can occur in a number of areas of the body. We have nerves in many places throughout our body, and with all of these nerves, we can sometimes injure the nerves through physical activity, repetitive motion, lack of exercise, weight gain, our diet, etc…
Some of the most common areas we see pinched nerves are within the back and spine, the wrists and fingers (carpal tunnel syndrome), and other areas where there is repetitive motion or heavy lifting applied.
Physical therapy is one of our favorite solutions for initially treating your pinched nerve condition. Here at Neurosurgery & Spine Consultants, we always like to approach a problem with conservative care. Physical therapy is non-invasive, it can provide extra flexibility and range of motion, and it also can help promote a more active lifestyle. In addition to all of the aforementioned benefits, it can sometimes be the solution for your pinched nerve condition. Sometimes all it takes is a nudge in the right direction to see success with a pinched nerve condition, and physical therapy may be the right solution for you!
Nutrition is so important when it comes to reducing inflammatory responses throughout the body. What makes up how we feel, heal, and survive is largely based on our diet. With this knowledge in hand, you’re most likely realizing what we put into our bodies on a daily basis is very important. Without a balanced, whole food diet; rich with vitamins, nutrients, and minerals, we run the risk of developing conditions over the long term. One of these conditions could be pinched nerves if you develop diabetes or gain excessive amounts of weight for your body’s frame. Our team will help you navigate the sometimes difficult road of healthy eating and have you back on track to a diet you can stick to and a diet which you’ll enjoy. All the while, you’ll most likely begin to feel better in some ways once you begin to implement a healthy, whole food diet to your daily life.
