The term pinched nerve is used to describe any peripheral nerve that is being compressed. The peripheral nerves are located in the limbs, joints, and in the hips. Any number of issues can lead to pressure on an important nerve. According to our chiropractors in Salt Lake City and South Jordan, this manifests as irritating and painful symptoms that usual extend down the arm or into the feet. If a major nerve comes under pressure from a serious issue, it can interfere with the use of the affected area, especially when complete numbness is involved.
In severe injuries that cause a pinched nerve, surgery may be required to reset a fracture or remove scar tissue and bone. However, most cases do not require this kind of invasive and risky treatment. Explore all of your options and get the facts with full diagnostics to determine the best course of action for your nerve pain, numbness & tingling.
