NERVE PAIN

Nerve Pain symptoms usually are felt as a burning, aching, tingling, or numbness sensation that is in the tissues that are controlled by that nerve. There are many different types and causes of nerve pain in which both Chiropractic and Acupuncture are very effective methods to relieve your nerve pain and related condition.

Many nerve pains are caused by a sudden traumatic event, such as in a slip or fall, an automobile accident or by a sports injury. Overall stresses of the body from bad posture and being overweight may lead to nerve pain over time also. This is called a cumulative trauma. When nerve pain is present something is putting pressure on that nerve and our job is to find the cause. Chiropractic adjustments and Acupuncture treatments will help relieve this pressure and correct many of the conditions that cause this damage.

When you see your Chiropractor or Acupuncturist for treatment to relieve nerve pain, your Chiropractic/Acupuncture doctor will first determine the cause of your nerve pain by obtaining an accurate health history and by performing a physical exam. There will also be orthopedic and neurologic testing done to determine what precise nerve is affected. This will help your doctor here at ASFCA narrow down the exact source of the nerve pain. [Sciatic] is the most common cause of nerve pain. Sciatica occurs when the vertebrae of the spine are misaligned putting pressure down on the tissue around the sciatic nerve. Anywhere in the body where ligaments and bones are not aligned correctly nerve pain and damage can occur. Nerve pain symptoms usually are felt as a burning, tingling, or numbness type sensation that is in the tissues that are controlled by that nerve.

All symptoms related to nerve pain are due to pressure from the tissues (bones, discs, and muscles) that are impinging the nerve. Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine and relieve the pressure on the nerve thus eliminating the pain and correcting the problem. Acupuncture uses tiny needles to stimulate the tissues to relax and reduce the inflammation in the tissues. Even the most severe nerve pain can be treated with one of these simple treatment options. Ice may also be prescribed to reduce inflammation and swelling to the area to help resolve the irritation in the surrounding tissues.

Why is Advanced Sports and Family Chiropractic the amazing group that is it? There are many reasons, but there is ONE all of us can agree on. Her name is Jennifer and this weekend is her Birthday!

You may have seen her answering a question for a patient or working with a new staff member or popping in and out always very focused on the task at hand. Jennifer has been a key part of our team since it was just Dr Woodle around and is our current Clinic Director ...which basically means she makes sure all of us are prepared and taken care of for whatever next journey we’re about to embark on next as a company.

She leads from her heart in dedication to her coworkers and the patients and is someone we are very thankful is in our corner.
This weekend is a special day for her so be sure to comment back to help us say - Happy Birthday Jennifer!
You’re the best!

—Sincerely,
Your fellow team members and Drs Brad and Christina Woodle
