There can be many causes for pain. A pinched nerve can cause a great deal of pain throughout your body. Common areas where you may experience a pinched nerve is in your neck, shoulders, arms, or hands. This event can often be mistaken as carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a much more serious condition that can lead to physical therapy and even surgery.
Before you decide that you have a serious condition, it may be a good idea to seek the help of a chiropractor at A Family and Sports Chiropractic Clinic. They can help you determine the root of the problem and suggest a course of action. If you are suffering from a pinched nerve, the treatment plans are much less invasive, and general chiropractic care can often relieve the symptoms without the need of more serious medical care.
A pinched nerve may lead to a feeling of numbness in your hands and in the carpal tunnel area, which is why patients sometimes confuse the two conditions. The brain not being able to distinguish where the nerve starts and ends causes the numbness from a pinched nerve. Keeping this information in mind, a pinched nerve can occur in other various parts of the body.
