Nerves send many signals throughout your body. It is because of nerves that you are able to think, blink, move, laugh, sing, dance and perform many other tasks. A pinched nerve is a term given to a nerve that is being compromised. Most often, the nerve is receiving pressure from bones or soft tissues. This pressure interrupts the signal and can lead to pain, limited movement, numbness and tingling sensations in your arms or legs. Dr. Roy A. Logan examines your spine to determine if a nerve is experiencing pressure. Then, he works to develop a chiropractic care plan to alleviate this pressure, eliminate your pain and restore your mobility.
A Pinched Nerve in Lower Back
The location of a pinched nerve can vary. Your pinched nerve may be due to an accident or injury or you may be suffering from a degenerative disc disease that is compromising nerve signal flow. If you have a pinched nerve in lower back, your symptoms may include:
- Lower back pain
- Leg numbness or tingling
- Leg weakness
- Limited leg and hip mobility
Dr. Logan, our chiropractor Austin, TX, examines your lower back to determine the location of the pinched nerve, then uses a gentle chiropractic adjustment to position your spine away from the nerve.
Pinched Nerve in Neck
If your pinched nerve is located in your neck, you may experience symptoms such as:
- Neck pain
- Limited head turning ability
- Pain, numbness or tingling in your arms
- Upper back pain
Your symptoms are determined by the exact location of the pinched nerve in the neck. Dr. Logan evaluates your neck and the position of your vertebrae to determine if a gentle chiropractic adjustment will alleviate the nerve pressure.
