A pinched nerve occurs when bones or soft tissues next to the nerve displaces or enlarges. This causes the nerve to become compressed. While it can occur anywhere a pinched nerve in the neck is common, followed by pinching in the back, shoulder, elbow and wrist.

Common Reasons for a Pinched Nerve
Nature designed your body to have clear pathways for all nerves in your body. Encroaching on those pathways results in a squeezed and irritated nerve. A pinched nerve can occur from a bulging or herniated disc, a misaligned bone or vertebra, a muscle spasm or an inflamed tendon or ligament.
Nerves become stretched and irritated if a bone or vertebrae slips out of alignment or soft tissues of the extremities become swollen. Either situation can result in numbness, tingling, pain and weakness. These conditions are best treated by chiropractors, practitioners skilled in pinched nerve treatment.
Symptoms common to a pinched nerve, in addition to radiating pain, are numbness, tingling, a burning sensation and diminished sensations. While most symptoms are as mentioned above, pinched nerves can also affect our internal organs resulting in less than optimal function.
Pinched Nerve Treatment
Our Arlington Heights chiropractor team is highly trained in treating and providing relief for people with an irritated or pinched nerve. If your symptoms last more than a couple of days, it’s time to schedule with our Arlington Heights chiropractor team for proper pinched nerve treatment.
Our experienced Arlington Heights chiropractor team will examine, assess and develop an individualized treatment approach to fix the underlying cause. Whether you have a pinched nerve in the neck, wrist, low back or in another location, a chiropractor is specifically trained to gently massage, stretch and relax the tissues that are compressing the nerve. They may also adjust the spine and extremities to restore proper bone alignment.
This approach takes pressure off the nerve and relieves the resulting pain, numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. Our chiropractors will also teach you exercises and lifestyle changes that can help keep pressure off those nerves.
