What Causes Nerve Pain?

Your nerves are crucial for allowing your body and brain to communicate. Among other things, nerves allow you to sense heat, pain, and other sensory inputs. Pain is a crucial warning system. If you cut yourself while cooking, for example, the pain will let you know that you’re injuring yourself. This way, you can stop the blade from doing more damage. Likewise, your senses can warn you about hot water.

Sometimes, the nerves become dysfunctional, and as a result, they send off ceaseless pain signals. Often, this is because the nerves are under pressure. For example, if you pull a muscle in your back, the swollen muscle could compress a nearby nerve constantly and relief may seem impossible to come by.

In this case, rather than a useful warning, pain can become an incessant nuisance. You might take pain medications, which can block pain signals from reaching the brain. However, this relief is only temporary. Further, it can also turn off your early warning signals while subjecting you to side effects. A better approach for nerve pain treatments in Frankfort, KY, is to work with a chiropractor, like Dr. Howell. 

How Chiropractors Treat Nerve Pain

The good news is that a chiropractor can treat nerve pain. Frequently, the relief is quick-acting but also long-lasting. This means you can enjoy relief not just right now but well into the future. With nerve pain, relieving pressure on nerves is often crucial. 

For example, if your lower spine is in poor alignment, something could put pressure on your sciatic nerve, which in turn, can produce pain and numbness in the legs. By manipulating your spine with chiropractic adjustments, it may be possible to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve. The result? The pain and numbness in your legs may be resolved. Healing lasers, electric acupuncture, and other chiropractic treatment methods may also help with nerve issues.

Treating nerve pain can be especially complex because the nerves themselves are so complex. That’s why the Frankfort, KY, office of Dr. Howell uses computer-assisted treatments for hard and soft tissue therapies. If you’re looking for nerve injury treatments, call 502 330 2808 to schedule an appointment.
