Chiropractic Care Helps Relieve Pinched Nerves In Long Island

By Rae Patricio

Each day people in New York wake up in pain and many of these problems are a result of pinched nerves. An impinged nerve can make your back ache or give you a headache. Your legs could hurt or you may experience numbness in your hands. These problems and many more may be helped by Long Island Active Release technique from your chiropractor.

Nerves in your body can become irritated in many ways. For example, if your job requires you to do the same tasks time and time again, it can create tension and stress in muscles. This is often caused by jobs like computer operators or assembly line workers. Once muscles become too tight, they don't have the chance to relax.

Tight muscles can affect nerve function and you could be in pain. Your nerves are natural communication lines between your brain and the rest of the body. Without nerves, the brain could not operate the body. This is why serious spinal injuries may result in paralysis. Impinged nerves can create some very unusual sensations in your body.

An impinged or irritated nerve can make you feel like you stuck your finger in a light socket. Nerve pain can be responsible for headaches and shoulder discomfort. A malfunctioning nerve may cause your hands to go numb or you may feel like you are being burned with something very hot.

Over time, impinged nerves can become damaged, creating scar tissue. This tissue often prevents normal muscle or joint function. ART (Active Release Therapy) is used to restore nerve function by eliminating scar tissue. This can restore muscle function and allow nerves to heal.

A qualified ART practitioner checks the body for signs of scar tissue. These areas (called trigger points) can be broken up by placing the right kind of pressure on them. In addition, your tightened muscles may have affected the alignment of your spine and this can be corrected with gentle and effective chiropractic adjustment therapy. After a few visits, you may be much better.
