Natural Treatment For Pinched Nerves
by NuView Health Medical
A common condition we see at our chiropractic office is patients with a pinched nerve in the lower back. A pinched nerve is caused when pressure builds due to tendons and ligaments unable to support the vertebrae. A pinched nerve causes numbness or tingling in your back, sharp or dull pain that moves outward. At NuView Health Medical we have several drug-free treatments for pinched nerves: chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and physical therapy.
Drug-free pain relief at our Midtown East clinic
Our clinic is located at 22 W 48th St #306 in New York, NY 10036. When you make an appointment our chiropractor will give you a physical exam. A nerve conduction study may be used to find your damaged nerves. Electrical currents measure your nerve signals and an EMG is used to test how your muscles are working. Our doctor will often use an x-ray to look at the spine more closely. Once the test results are in our chiropractor will design a custom treatment program to treat your pinched nerve. Often several therapies including massage and acupuncture are recommended.
Several therapies available for pinched nerves
Chiropractic Care is used to treat pinched nerves. Spinal adjustments or manual manipulations are when we use the hands to align the spine and reduce lower back pain. Our chiropractor is trained in many different techniques. These techniques soothe muscles and pinched nerves. Spinal decompression is when your spine is stretched using a traction table or moving device. It helps you with herniated discs and stretches and massages the muscles in your back.
Our medical massage services are often used with chiropractic care. Medical massage is specialized massage and provides a number of techniques to ease pain. It provides deep tissue massage, stretching, and range of motion techniques. Regular massage is used when your pinched nerve damage is less serious.
Physical therapy is another therapy we offer. Our therapist will design specific exercises for you to do. You will perform these exercises at the office and at home. These corrective exercises will help you control the pain in your lower back and lead to better mobility. Some of our patients receive acupuncture treatment for relieving pain when other treatments don’t work.
