Chiropractor and Acupuncturist Chapel Hill, NC
Nerves are tough structures that travel from the spinal cord through the spinal cord to surrounding tissues. These crucial information-carrying systems suffer blockage when pinched or irritated in some manner. Natural healthcare methods such as chiropractic and acupuncture can offer relief to people suffering from pinched nerves in many ways. At our Chapel Hill office, Dr. Oskardmay helps patients who have pain and other disability from pinched nerves by using a unique combination of therapies designed to help. Many people come to our clinic when other methods have failed, or because they don’t want surgery or find that medications leave them with adverse side effects. As a chiropractor and licensed acupuncturist doctor, Dr. Oskardmay has helped thousands of patients with nerve pain since opening her doors in 1995. She looks forward to helping you, as well.
Pinched nerves can affect the neck, upper back, lower back, shoulders, arm, foot, elbow- virtually anyplace a nerve travels will show some level of pain and disability with nerve impingement. Symptoms of nerve impingement vary depending on the nerve affected and how severe the pinching and even the duration of nerve blockage. Common symptoms include tingling, pain, and numbness, or a sensation of pins and needles in the area supplied by the nerve. Pain can be sharp and stabbing and severe or dull, achy, and chronic. Muscle weakness may ensue, as well, in affected areas. Movement may exacerbate pain caused by pinched nerves and affect daily activities and even sleep. Many people depend on muscle relaxers and sleep aids to combat insomnia caused by pinched nerve pain, with varying success levels.
Dr. Oskardmay understands the severity of pinched nerve pain and offers solutions to help ease the problem so many face. Following careful examination and history review, she devises a treatment plan designed to get to the root of the problem. She uses chiropractic medical diagnostic methods to determine which nerves require to contribute to the pain and disability and then provides gentle and precise adjustment methods to correct the problem at its source. Treatment may include activator or hands-on manual adjustments geared toward each person’s body needs and requests. She provides massage and other therapies to relax surrounding muscles and other tissues, easing the mind, relaxing the body, and facilitating healing. Acupuncture is a balanced therapy method used to enhance autonomic nervous system response and support its vital role. She employs this ancient technique and cupping massage to reduce muscle spasm areas and trigger points in the back and shoulders when needed.
