Neck Pain or Tingling Down Your Arms? Then Speak with Your Chiropractor Today
Have you been experiencing more frequent neck pain or tingling down your arms? If the answer is yes, then you'll want to take careful note of how often it's occurring. Whether it's a new occurrence or it's becoming more chronic, you should see a skilled chiropractor.
Why You May Be Experiencing Neck Pain or Tingling Down Your Arms
If you're experiencing neck pain or tingling down either of your arms, then you'll want to seek out the opinion of your chiropractic team because you may be suffering from cervical radiculopathy, also referred to as a pinched nerve in the neck.
This is most commonly caused by a herniated disc within the neck’s vertebrae. When this disc moves out of its natural alignment, it can compress the surrounding nerves, causing an array of symptoms, including neck pain or tingling down the arms.
Other causes for these symptoms include degenerative changes – which is common as the spine ages – or even bone spurs, which the degeneration of your spinal discs can cause. When these cushions start to degenerate, the body goes into overdrive and produces more bone, resulting in these bone spurs.
Chiropractic Treatments Can Help Neck Pain and Tingling Down Your Arms
These conditions are often referred to as musculoskeletal injuries or conditions. While some individuals consult their primary care provider, more and more people are turning to chiropractors to help them find an alternative treatment method to surgery or pain medications.
The goal of chiropractic care is to go beyond treating the symptoms of pain and get down to the root of the problem. One of the most common chiropractic treatments for neck pain or tingling down the arms is spinal manipulation. In this technique, your chiropractor will apply gentle force to correct any joint movement or positional alteration of the cervical spine to move the misaligned vertebrae back to their natural position. This helps to relieve any compression resulting in pinched nerves as well as decrease inflammation that could be contributing to your pain.
