Pinched Nerve – Try Chiropractic Treatment First

If you or a loved one has experience a pinched nerve, you know all to well it can put a serious toll on your health and mental well-being.


Pinched nerves can range from waking up and not even being able to roll out of bed to not being able turn your head and look out your mirrors driving.  When patients present to Abundant Life Chiropractic they commonly say, “I do not know how this came to be, or I just woke up like this.”  Though their statements are true, usually pinched nerves do not just happen all at once.  A lot of times there was a straw that broke the camels back, or in this case YOUR back…

When analyzing a patient with pinched nerve problems, the first thing to take into consideration is the structural biomechanics of the spine which houses and protects the nerves themselves.  The spine has a very specific alignment and position which it is suppose to continually be in.  This position is designed for two reasons.  1.  To protect the delicate tissues of the nervous system.  2.  To absorb shock and bear all weight that the body presents itself with on a daily basis.   The American lifestyle of sitting at desk, continually texting/usage of electronics, contact sports, and automobile accidents leads to major alterations in the spinal biomechanics overtime.  Ultimately, resulting in the straw that broke the camels back.

In order to effectively and efficiently correct a pinched nerve, one needs the source of the pinched nerve problem analyzed by a professional at Chanhassen Chiropractic.
