Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Pinched Nerves in Chesapeake

sciatica pain

Do you have a pinched nerve in Chesapeake, VA? When you feel discomfort and it feels like a pinched nerve there is a lot more happening than you think. Just like a train traveling through a tunnel, the train needs a clear pathway to reach its destination.

Your spine is designed to allow a certain amount of turning and bending while keeping the nerve supply open. The spinal cord is protected by these 24 bones and nerves extend off each side of the spinal cord at each segmental level to its corresponding organs. Just like a hose, when a nerve is being compressed it impairs your body’s ability to function at its full potential.

When a vertebra is out of its natural position, it can compress the nerve that passes through the surrounding openings and then those nerves become irritated. When this change occurs we refer it the resulting structure as a subluxation. Even more than just a subluxation occurring, there are two different classifications for this nerve interference.

The first is a compressed lesion which is actually not very common. It’s a more eloquent way of saying “pinched nerve”. The most common is what is known as a facilitative lesion. This is the result of the nerve root being twisted, strained or chafed.

When the staff of Planet Wellness Chiropractic provides care, they do more than work with the static structures like the vertebra but they also work on the soft tissue. We do this because they don’t move unless muscles move them. Muscles, like everything else in your body, are controlled by the nervous system. As you can see, a subluxation can create a nasty cycle and a number of problems. It is our duty to use several steps to find these subluxations in your spine, undo them, and prevent them from returning.

At Planet Wellness Chiropractic in Chesapeake, VA, we perform an extensive examination to identify the root cause of your problems, locate the exact location where treatment is necessary, and get movement back in the area. We restore movement through a chiropractic adjustment. When this occurs, there is an immediate release of endorphins, which are natural pain killers. The chiropractic adjustment facilitates the body to return to its normal state and allows the body to being a healing or recovery process.

I was constantly in severe pain and always feeling tired. The doctors could not tell me what was wrong, even after going through numerous tests. I am now feeling better. I have so much energy. It is amazing! I would have been one that was against chiropractic care, but now my attitude is positive about chiropractic care. I tell all my friends about how Dr. Chad has helped me.

I have suffered from asthma for the majority of my life. Dr. Chad has removed the interference and God is healing me from asthma. I am so grateful for Dr. Chad and his wonderful staff.

They are very giving and helping people. They were very helpful with my family when my son got injured in his neck in a wrestling practice. They go out of their way to help the community.
