Common causes of a pinched nerve

Chiro For A Pinched Nerve - Common Causes of a Pinched Nerve
  • Herniated disc: When a disc in your spine ruptures, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves.
  • Bone spurs: These can develop as a result of injury or disease, causing additional pressure on the nerve.
  • Spinal stenosis: Narrowing of the spaces in your spine can cause nerves to become compressed.
  • Repetitive motions or overuse: Regularly performing the same motion can lead to nerve damage over time.
  • Obesity: Extra weight can add pressure to nerves, particularly in the lower back.

Preventing and managing a pinched nerve

  • Exercise regularly: Keeping your body in good shape can prevent many causes of pinched nerves.
  • Maintain good posture: This helps to keep pressure off your nerves and avoid unnecessary strain.
  • Take breaks: If your work or activities involve repetitive motions, ensure you take regular breaks to relieve pressure on your nerves.
  • Healthy weight: Maintaining a healthy weight reduces stress on your nerves and can help prevent pinched nerves, particularly in your lower back.
  • Professional care: We can provide treatments designed to alleviate symptoms and promote healing, as well as provide advice on how to avoid future nerve compression.
