When a patient experiences pain in the neck area, it is often caused by a pinched nerve. The term “pinched nerve” refers to a nerve that is entrapped or under excessive pressure because of herniated or bulging discs anywhere along the spine, including the neck. Other causes of pinched nerve in the neck can include degenerative disc disease, subluxations, and facet syndrome.
When nerves are under stress, they become irritated and send painful signals to alert of a problem that needs to be corrected. Aside from discomfort and pain, a pinched nerve in the neck can also cause loss of motion and sensation, as well as weakness and inability to properly function. This can extend from the neck to the shoulders and arms, because the nerves that originate in the neck prolong down the upper extremities. Problems with hand function (similar to carpal tunnel syndrome) and headaches are also possible symptoms of a pinched nerve in the neck.
Chiropractic care is one of the most effective treatments to correct spinal issues that cause a pinched nerve in the neck. Because it is a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical therapy, patients experience progressive pain relief and overall wellness without any additional downtime.
An expert chiropractor will diagnose the patient by evaluating the results of diagnostic tests such as X-rays, MRIs or nerve tests – one test or a combination of tests is prescribed depending on the patient’s condition and needs. At Dr. Steven Shoshany’s state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility in NYC, X-rays and nerve tests are performed and reviewed in-house for the patient’s convenience.
Following a diagnosis that reveals the patient has a pinched nerve in the neck, a personalized treatment plan will be developed. Dr. Shoshany’s top treatments for pinched nerve in the neck include chiropractic adjustments and cervical spinal decompression. These options are safe and highly effective because they address the root cause of pain in order to provide long-lasting relief and wellness.
