Neurogenic Pain

The most prevalent conditions associated with neurogenic pain include:

True neurogenic pain, commonly known as a trapped or pinched nerve, often alters your sensation in the affected limb and can be felt as burning pain (hot or cold), tingling, numbness and pins and needles. It can also affect your strength and positional awareness which can lead to clumsiness and falls.

Chiropractic treatment for neurogenic pain often involves non-invasive techniques to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote the body's natural healing processes. The specific approach may vary based on the location and severity of the pain. Here are common chiropractic methods used in the treatment neurogenic pain:

Chiropractic treatment for neurogenic pain includes various approaches:

  1. Spinal adjustments: Manual realignment of the spine to reduce pressure on pinched nerves and enhance joint function.
  2. Traction: Gently stretching the spine to create space between vertebrae, reducing nerve compression.
  3. Nerve flossing/neurodynamic flossing: This technique involved repetitive movement of the affected limb, mobilising the affected nerve and alleviating the altered sensation.
  4. Massage and soft-tissue therapy: Techniques to alleviate muscle tension, improve circulation, and relieve pressure on nerves.
  5. Electrical stimulation: Using electrical currents to relax muscles and reduce nerve-related pain.
  6. Exercise and rehabilitation: Prescribing specific exercises to strengthen muscles and support the spine, reducing the risk of future pinched nerves.
  7. Posture and ergonomic guidance: Recommendations for maintaining proper posture and making ergonomic adjustments to prevent pinched nerves.
  8. Lifestyle changes: Suggestions like weight management and stress reduction to promote spinal health and nerve function.

It's important to note that the suitability of chiropractic treatment for neurogenic pain depends on the specific condition and its underlying cause.

Including, orthopaedic and neurological testing and where deemed necessary further imaging may be required to aid in tailing a bespoke care plan using the appropriate treatment modalities. Chiropractors can then develop a personalized treatment plan to address the pinched nerve and its related symptoms.
