Soothe the Pain Brought On By a Pinched Nerve in Charlotte, NC

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Understanding Pinched Nerves

A pinched nerve in your back can trigger intense pain that runs from your lower back and down the rear of one leg running from the buttock down the back of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may start abruptly or gradually. Usually, it is characterized by sharp, shooting pain that feels a lot like an electric shock. Moving the leg, back or other area of the body affected by the pinched nerve will often intensify this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be spread evenly along the leg, but there usually are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often followed by numbness or a tingling feeling along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which runs from the lower back and down the rear 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 might be triggered by a variety of factors, including things like a ruptured intervertebral disc, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (called spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by an infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest in the body, measuring three-quarters of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the system of nerves found in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

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

If your sciatic nerve is squeezed, 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 disk disease, piriformis syndrome, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by trauma.

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

It's always a great experience whenever I visit ProHealth and Wellness. Tracy, Tiffany, and John are always pleasant to work with. Dr. Clare and his team have helped me open up a compressed disc in my back that was pinching a nerve and causing leg pain, and he continues to relieve pain everytime I come in for an adjustment. Wouldn't recommend anyone else.

I have been a patient at ProHealth and Wellness for about 15 years. I keep coming because Dr. Clare and all of his support staff are always so pleasant and, I believe, genuinely concerned with my well-being.

I have been to many Chiropractors and Health Spas with minimal relief. Once I started coming to ProHealth & Wellness I found them to have more of a one on one approach. You are not simply a number and they do not use a "cookie cutter" approach where everyone gets the same process every visit. They tweak each visit to help with what my aging body is doing. Give them a try and see what I mean!!

I have been going to Thomas for years - I’m happy he found his new home at prohealth and wellness. He’s very professional, he listens to your concerns about what is bothering you and by the time you walk out, you are feeling tremendously better. There is a reason why I keep coming back. He is the best!

Dr. Clare and staff are the BEST! By coming in for regular care, I am able to continue doing the things I love. I think of my adjustments as the same thing I do when I go to dentist for cleanings every 6 months and oil changes for my car. You won’t be disappointed, I promise.
