Treatment For Neck Pain

Upper back pain and neck pain can be related, whether it is from a misalignment in the upper thoracic spine or in the lower cervical spine, because many of the nerves are connected to the same areas of vertebrae and may affect the same areas of the body.

Treatment For Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve can be described as sharp shooting pain sometimes with numbness and tingling. A pinched nerve can happen from muscle or tendon inflammation, bone issues, and subluxations in the back. With most pinched nerves, irritation in and around a joint can impinge nerves. Think of a pinched nerve like a pinched water hose. When the hose is pinched, water cannot flow freely out of the hose. When a nerve is pinched, just like the water in the hose, signals from the central nervous system to the certain body part are disrupted and cannot flow freely. Nerve signals that are disrupted can lead to several issues including unhealthy or irritated nerve fibers in the body, which lead to pain, numbness, tingling, and other symptoms.

Chiropractic care can help spinal subluxations that improves nerve communication, and it can help your body heal naturally from other conditions that may be causing a pinched nerve. In fact, a chiropractor understands very well how nerves connect to the body from the back and how a minor subluxation can cause major problems.

Tennis Elbow is closely related to tennis and other activities that involve repeated motions with the forearm and elbow.

Treatment For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition that affects the hands, wrists, and elbows. This condition causes a narrowing of the nerve passageway in the wrist and causes an impingement of the median nerve, which originates in the spine and reaches all the way to the wrist. Any swelling in the arm, shoulder, forearm, or wrist can apply pressure on the median nerve and that can lead to pain, numbness, and limited movement. People who experience carpal tunnel are usually people who work at a desk or on a computer for eight or more hours a day. This occupational health problem affects millions of people a year. It is often a problem caused by pressure placed on the nerves when doing common daily activities. Other symptoms caused by carpal tunnel can also include weakness or loss of grip strength, tingling, burning, and wrist pain. Fortunately, alternative treatments such as chiropractic care can help with the healing of median nerve. Since the median nerve originates in the spine, a chiropractic adjustment may help in relieving the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel.

Before a chiropractic adjustment is provided, Dr. Michelle Gip DC and Dr. Luan Gip DC will exam your arm and determine whether a chiropractic adjustment will help your condition.
