What can cause a pinched nerve?
A pinched nerve happens when too much pressure is placed on the nerve. This pressure can be caused by the surrounding tissues or surrounding bone and cartilage. It is even possible for the muscles or tendons to place too much pressure on a nerve. There are many reasons why this pressure is happening, with three of the more common reasons include experiencing some type of injury, not exercising enough and exercising too much.
In order for someone to understand exactly what is causing their pinched nerve problem, they need to be seen by a medical professional for a proper diagnosis.
Acupuncture treatment for pinched nerves
When acupuncture treatment is chosen to address a pinched nerve problem, a focus is placed on the problem as well as all of the symptoms that come with the diagnosis. The main focus of acupuncture is to release any blockages in the body that inhibits the body’s ability to heal. This release of blockages also eliminates any toxins within the body that can get in the way of one’s healing process.
When it comes to using acupuncture to directly treat a pinched nerve, the needles will be placed in areas that improve the flow of blood and help to reduce inflammation. Improved blood flow and less inflammation help relieve any symptoms someone is experiencing due to a pinched nerve.
