Pinched nerve treatment

What is a
Pinched Nerve?

A “pinched nerve” is the result of damage or injury to a nerve or set of nerves. This can be due to stretching, compression and/or constriction by nearby tissues, such as bones, discs, cartilage, muscles and/or tendons. This pressure disturbs the nerve’s normal function.

A herniated disc in your low back can put pressure on a nerve root, causing pain and discomfort that travels down the back of your leg. A pinched nerve in your neck can lead to numbness and pain in your arm, hand, and fingers. Most patients respond well to conservative care, while severe cases may require surgery. Our doctors will always begin with a complete evaluation to ensure that you are a candidate for our treatments, getting started right away if appropriate and referring you elsewhere if necessary.

Finding the Right

Pinched Nerve Treatment for You

No matter where you live, there are a variety of treatment options for pinched nerves in San Diego. Intouch Chiropractic provides expert non-surgical pinched nerve treatment in San Diego, but the remedies below are more common. We often see patients after these standard remedies have failed, but they should not be totally discounted. The important thing is finding the right treatment for you. Standard treatment for nerve damage often begins with oral medications. From there, many patients seek other options if their symptoms persist.

At Intouch Chiropractic, we focus on:

  • Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. Remedies for pinched nerves due to disc problems. Symptoms from a pinched nerve that are due to a disc herniation, disc bulge, or stenosis are relieved.

  • NUCCA Chiropractic. Gentle, targeted adjustments to treat the source of pain. These adjustments relieve pain and can help prevent it from coming back.

Other common pinched nerve treatment options include:

  • NSAIDs. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) These include aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen to reduce swelling.

  • Narcotics. These medications are used for short periods to reduce severe pain. These include oxycodone and fentanyl.

  • Steroid injections. Injections are used to reduce swelling. Most medical providers advise against more than 3 shots in a one-year time frame.

  • Physical therapy. Often recommended for stretching and strengthening muscles. Many patients report getting help, but others do not respond to treatment.
