Pinched nerve pain can come out of nowhere.  Maybe you twisted or turned the wrong way and experienced a sharp pain in your back or neck.  Maybe you were injured when playing sports and now you have residual pain.  Maybe you simple woke up with pain in your neck or back.  All of these could be instances of pinched nerve pain.  Any little movement can aggravate the problem area, causing sharp pain.  But what is the cause of pinched nerve pain?  Spinal misalignments, or vertebrae that are turned, twisted, or out of place, are most often the root cause of pinched nerve pain.  Vertebrae that are out of place can put pressure on or compress nerves that lead to the numbness, tingling, or pain you are experiencing.  As soon as you suspect pinched nerve pain, get in contact with a Bentonville chiropractor to find safe, natural, effective relief.

Chiropractic Care Relieves Pinched Nerve Pain

If not addressed, pinched nerve pain can come and go for weeks at a time, leaving you feeling frustrated and uncomfortable.  Don’t wait to get the help you need to experience relief.  Bentonville chiropractor Dr. Tom Niemela is experienced in pinched nerve pain and can have you back to living your best life in no time.  Chiropractic care focuses on correcting spinal alignments that affect other conditions or pain.  Usually, spinal misalignments are the source of nerve pain.  With regular visits to Dr. Niemela of Arbor Vitae Chiropractic, you can find the relief you have been searching for.   After assessing the spine, Dr. Niemela will perform gentle and precise adjustments to correct vertebrae that are out of place and restore proper spinal alignment to decrease pressure on the nerves.  The benefits of chiropractic care even extend beyond alleviating pinched nerve pain.  Removing spinal misalignments also removes nerve interference that keeps the body and brain from communicating properly, leading to dysfunction and pain in other areas of the body as well.  But when misalignments are removed, the body can function at high levels of health so you can be happy, healthy, and comfortable once again. 

Experience Long-Term Relief

Medications may ease pain for a short amount of time, but sadly, pain often returns even worse than before once the medication wears off.  Thankfully, neurologically-based chiropractic care is a long-term solution that addresses and corrects the root cause of nerve pain.  Not only that, but use of medication over long periods of time can damage organs, specifically the liver that metabolizes the medication.  Too often, we reach for medication out of habit or convenience instead of seeking a safer, more natural solution.  Chiropractic care is both safe and effective, and it addresses the root cause of pain or dysfunction.  We only have one body, so it essential that we do everything we can to take care of it to the best of our ability. 

Don’t let pinched nerve pain keep you from doing the things you love.  Instead, find relief when you schedule a consultation with Bentonville chiropractor Dr. Tom Niemela of Arbor Vitae Chiropractic.  We look forward to hearing from you!
