Our Sioux City Chiropractor Team Can Diagnose & Treat Pinched Nerves

If you've ever experienced a pinched nerve syndrome, you know how frustrating and uncomfortable it can be. Our Sioux City chiropractor team has extensive experience helping people recover from pinched nerves and avoid long-term complications associated with untreated conditions.

What is a Pinched Nerve?

You have nerves all over your body: exiting along your spinal cord, in your shoulders and arms, and in your hips and legs. If something encroaches upon ;the nerve—such as an injured muscle, an injured disc, a misaligned or injured joint (such as one affected by arthritis or stenosis), or even a bony spur or tumor—then this can lead to compression, irritation, inflammation, and injury to the nerve tissue. 

Some common areas in the body where pinched nerves occur include:

  • Neck, mid back, and lower back: cervical radiculopathy, lumbar radiculopathy, sciatica
  • Arm: ulnar nerve entrapment (cubital tunnel syndrome), median nerve entrapment (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Leg: piriformis syndrome, ilioinguinal nerve entrapment, peroneal nerve entrapment

Pinched nerves can happen to anyone, but they're particularly common among people who do repetitive movements, sit a lot, have physically demanding jobs, or were involved in a car accident or sports accident.

Common Pinched Nerve Symptoms

Nerve compression and damage can present with uncomfortable symptoms such as:

  • Numbness
  • The feeling of a limb "falling asleep"
  • Weakness
  • Tingling
  • Nerve pain: burning, stabbing, shooting, searing, boring

These symptoms may come and go and may get worse or better in certain positions or with certain activities. Symptoms will generally appear in whichever area of the body is typically innervated by the affected nerve. 

Why Seeing a Sioux City Chiropractor is Helpful for Pinched Nerve Treatment

If a pinched nerve is not treated, then symptoms could simply return or get worse, eventually leading to long-term complications. So, we recommend meeting with a Sioux City chiropractor for treatment if you're dealing with any of the above symptoms. We can offer several services to help relieve pressure on the injured nerve, facilitate nerve and tissue healing, and reduce your pain and other symptoms, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Physical therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Regenerative medicine
