What is the Best Treatment for a Pinched Nerve in the Neck?

April 19, 2011

Have you been diagnosed with a pinched nerve in the neck?  If so, you most likely have pressure on a spinal nerve root as it is exiting from in between the cervical vertebrae. A pinched nerve is usually caused by a herniated disc or a bulging disc.

Sometimes degeneration of the spine or degeneration of the disc can cause bone spurs or bony growth that can encroach upon the environment of the nerve resulting in a condition called spinal stenosis or foraminal stenosis.

The symptoms of a pinched nerve in the neck vary from person to person and can include neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, arm pain, hand pain, pain that radiates from the neck down the arm, numbness and tingling in the fingers, weakness of grip, and night pain.

Some unfortunate people suffer from what’s called a Double Crush Syndrome, which means two nerves may be pinched in different parts of the body.  This makes it tricky sometimes as the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) can mimic the symptoms of a pinched nerve in the neck.

The good news is, we can treat most disc herniations and disc bulges, as well as spinal degeneration and CTS conservatively before you try going under the knife.

At our Atlanta Chiropractic facilities, a combination of chiropractic care, non-surgical spinal decompression, epidural injections, and other treatments, are used to successfully treat most of the primary causes of pinched nerves in both the neck and low back.
