Treatment of Nerve Impingement
Nerve impingement also known as a pinched nerve is common. Every year about 85 out of 100,000 adults in the United States are affected by pinched nerves.
A nerve impingement occurs when there is too much pressure applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues. Nerve impingement can occur in the bone, tendon, cartilage, or muscles.
A nerve impingement is caused by spinal alignment issues related to the tissues of the body. This includes areas such as the body’s bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscle tissue. As a more natural approach to resolving nerve impingement, Mattia Spinal Care & Rehab Center uses gentle manual therapy to adjust the alignment of these body tissues. By doing this it helps resolve pinched nerve pain by freeing the trapped nerve.
