Pinched Nerve Treatment
A spinal adjustment by a chiropractic doctor removes the interference of nerve flow. This reduction of nerve flow is caused by irritation to spinal nerves as they exit the spine. Most spinal nerve irritation is caused by muscles being too tight, which then pulls out of alignment the vertebrae to which the muscles are attached. In turn, this inflames the nerves, causing pain and muscle spasm.
Spinal manipulation successfully relieves the nerve pinching, which restores nerve flow. This procedure allows your brain, muscles, organs, and skin to recharge themselves.
Chiropractors call this healing ability, "Innate Intelligence", which means that as soon as the proper nerve flow is restored, the body instinctively knows how to heal itself.
How Chiropractic Can Help You
In order to properly heal your back, chiropractors perform "adjustments", or manipulations, to your spine. These treatments reduce or eliminate the inflammation on the nerve or in the surrounding soft tissue, like your muscles, tendons or ligaments. With the inflammation gone and your range of motion is restored, you can enjoy a pain free spine that's less likely to become arthritic as you age.
Dr. Schillinger uses a variety of adjusting techniques, which allows you to choose a treatment style that's most comfortable for you.
A major benefit of chiropractic care is that it does not require medications or surgery.
Because Schillinger Chiropractic and Wellness Center is focused on patient education, you'll learn the lifestyle changes you'll need to make (in exercise, diet, stress management) in order to maintain your spinal health on your own.
