Pinched nerve treatment
Pinched nerve treatment is offered at Chiropractic and Rehabilitation of Miami Lakes. These pinched nerves, usually related to herniated discs, are commonly caused from a traumatic force that is placed into the body. The most common causes the results after an auto accident collision. Vertebral discs may also be damaged from excessive stress placed on the disc through certain motions. Since vertebral discs are within the spinal column many people turn to chiropractic care for safe and effective treatment. These vertebral discs are throughout the cervical (neck), thoracic (mid back), and lumbar (lower back) regions of the spine.
When the nucleus pulpolsus (center of the disc) becomes misplaced it forms a bulge or herniation on the outside portion of the disc which may then pinch spinal nerves. “Pinched nerves” usually respond very well to chiropractic care. In cases of pinched nerves, you may feel tingling, numbness, and possibly even weakness the the affected extremities. This is due to pressure and inflammation on a nerve from bulging discs or bone spurs along the spine. Pressure on these “pinched nerves” may cause your symptoms to travel away from the spine, along the course of the nerve. The nerves of the neck travel down the shoulders and extend into the arms, hands, and fingers. This is why so many neck problems cause symptoms to radiate into the arm and hand.
The nerves of the low back join to form the sciatic nerve, which travels down the legs and into the feet. This is why a “pinched nerve” of the low back with symptoms radiating down the leg is often called “sciatica”. Nerves can very often become irritated by stiff and restricted joints and muscles.
Although most patients receive traditional manual (“hands-on”) adjustments, we also offer “low force” adjustments, performed with a highly advanced instrument. Some patients are familiar with these instrument adjustment techniques, which are often referred to as “activator”, “pro-adjustor”, or “impulse adjusting”. Although these low-force adjustments are gentle and precise. Experience has shown us that instrument adjusting can be effective when used in combination with manual adjusting. In addition, instrument adjusting is an alternative to manual adjusting. Hence with all of our treatment options, the doctor will be happy to discuss with you which adjusting techniques would be best for your condition.
The challenging task of finding ways to manage symptomatic pain can often be troublesome and even unsatisfactory. It is common for patients to come to us after enduring traditional methods of chronic pain.
We offer alternative approaches to diagnosis and treatment that are often welcome solutions, as they save on recovery time, expense and trauma to the body. Our goal is to help our patients achieve a sense of physical and emotional well being.
- acute care – assessment and diagnosis of the initial injury.
- treatment – especially relevant is the use of specialist advice and therapies to promote healing.
- rehabilitation – and then progressive management for full return to pre-injury status.
- prevention – identification and address of deficiencies known to directly result in, or act as precursors to injury, such as movement assessment.
- education – therefore sharing of specialist knowledge to individual patients assist in prevention or management of injury.

Our Chiropractor will perform a thorough examination which may include orthopedic and neurologic testing. If necessary, diagnostic test such as X-rays or MRI studies will be prescribed to determine your diagnosis. Manipulation (adjustments) of the spine and extremity joints are performed by the Chiropractor. The adjustments are very effective in restoring normal function to the joints, as well as to the surrounding muscles and nerves. This usually leads to a decrease in pain and faster recovery times.
