Fast Nerve Pain Relief | Chiropractor for Nerve Pain in Jackson Township, NJ
Hi everybody, Dr. Jodi Kinney with Intrinsic Chiropractic. Today I’m going to talk about nerve pain and how Chiropractic care provides nerve pain relief.
Upper Extremity Nerve Pain & Subluxations
Nerve Pain is pain that may shoot down your extremities, either your arms or your legs, and an adjustment or treatment that we do that helps with alleviating nerve pain. So the first one I’m going to focus on are the nerves that go into the upper extremities, or down into the arms. Those nerves extend from the lower part of the neck. So see those little yellow stringy things. Those are the nerves, they start at the lower part of the neck, and they go into the shoulders and all the way down to the arms, hands and fingers. Patients may have shoulder pain, they may have shooting pain into the arms, or they may actually have weakness, numbness or tingling into the hands or both hands. That is usually from misalignments or what we call Subluxations.
Chiropractic Adjustment for Nerve Pain Relief
So today my patient is Allison, and I’m going to show you how we adjust this lower part of the neck effectively to help reduce the nerve pinching and pressure that comes from that part of the neck. So Allison, I’m gonna have you drop your hands to the floor, please. It’s the nerves that usually come from this lower neck and upper upper back. So I’m going to make contact here and just let her head drop over this way with a little pressure. Good. And then coming back, one more, little pressure and now relax. That’s perfect. And then I usually, in conjunction with that, just relax and massage some of the musculature around that area. That’s a super effective adjustment that really helps to free up the nerves. Then we support the adjustments with what we call traction, which is a way that we’ve worked to get a better curve in the neck. That’s to be continued. So look out for that next post!
Thanks so much for tuning in, we’re gonna see you soon!
