Soothe the Pain Triggered By a Pinched Nerve in Metairie, LA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Understanding Pinched Nerves

A pinched nerve in your back can lead to extreme pain that runs from your lower back and down the rear of one leg running from the backside down the rear of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may begin suddenly or gradually over time. Generally, it is characterized by sharp, shooting pain that feels a lot like an electrical shock. Moving the leg, back or other area of the body affected by the pinch nerve will often increase this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be distributed uniformly along the leg, but there frequently are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often accompanied by numbness or a tingling sensation along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which runs from the lower back and down the back of both legs.

Reasons for a Pinched Nerve.

A pinched nerve may arise from a process which causes pressure or irritation of the nerve roots which make up the sciatic nerve. This pressure may be caused by a variety of factors, including a ruptured intervertebral spinal disc, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (referred to as spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by an infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest in the body, measuring 3/4 of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the system of nerves situated in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

The sciatic nerve and its divisions are what allow movement and sensation, or motor and sensory functions. in the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

If your sciatic nerve is pressed, or “pinched”, it can cause pain along these pathways. This is the reason pinched nerve pain can radiate or spread to other parts of your body.

Pinched nerve pain may be caused by a bulging or herniated disk, degenerative disc disease, piriformis disorder, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by injury.

All of these disorders can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or other related nerve roots located in your lower back. It is this compression, or pinching, that results in your pain and other signs and symptoms.

Left worse then when I entered. First visit in extreme pain, unable to stand or sit normally. Was adjusted and pain... increased to the point I required an ice treatment just so I could leave. MRI ordered same day, the MRI facility instructed me to return when pain free. After two weeks of medication and bed rest, scheduled 2nd visit for adjustment. Adjstment was refused. Why? Because of my level of pain. Charged full visit. They adjusted me when in debiliating pain without MRI (1st visit) but would not without MRI with constant ache level pain(2nd visit). Looking for another chiropractor Pain reduced to a constant ache and I regained full mobility. I was told they would not adjust me until MRI completed.read more

For almost a year, I've gone to this Chiropractic Center for neck and back pain. During my last and final service, my... unmasked provider coughed near me in the small, enclosed room. I immediately opened my eyes and pulled away from the provider and blurted out, "Did you just cough on me?" Then I heard, "if you are uncomfortable, you can leave." This was repeated to me several times. I asked the provider for a moment. I felt so bad, because of how upset I thought the provider was, that I apologized and continued the service. Now it's a week later and I have a sore throat and a cough.read more
