Nerve pain is one of the main reasons that people seek chiropractic care. The human musculoskeletal system includes nerve fibers throughout, with physical imbalances, inflammation, and injuries known to compromise nervous system function and adversely affect general health. Whether it’s your spine, your muscles, or a specific mechanical disorder, nerve fibers can transmit severe and disabling pain when they’re entrapped, inflamed, or otherwise in poor health.
Here at Natural Health Houston, we help to diagnose nerve pain and correct underlying physical issues that may affect the nervous system function. Nerve pain can manifest in many ways, including thoracic outlet syndrome and nerve entrapment.
Thoracic outlet syndrome – This syndrome occurs due to the compression of nerves and blood vessels in the thoracic outlet area of the body between the base of the neck and the armpit. People with this disorder experience pain in this area, with tingling and numbness often spreading down to the arms and fingers due to impaired circulation. Treatment for thoracic outlet syndrome typically consists of physical therapy in and around the affected area.
Nerve entrapment – This syndrome occurs when nerves become restricted due to compression or entrapment. Nerve entrapment can develop from physical trauma, injury, or as the result of poor posture over a long period of time. Chiropractic care programs for nerve entrapment often include a combination of physical therapies, including massage therapy, spinal adjustments, and therapeutic exercise programs.
