Pinched Nerves and Muscle Spasms: EPs Chiropractic Team

Pinched Nerves and Muscle Spasms: A pinched or compressed nerve can occur in various body regions, from the wrist to the foot. When a nerve is compressed, a pins and needles feeling can present until the pressure is relieved, or there can be no sensation symptoms, but other symptoms like muscle spasms, especially in the arm or leg, can appear. Individuals will feel a repetitive fluttering or twitching when the arm or leg is not in motion. A pinched nerve could be the cause of spasms in the back or extremities. Injury Medical Chiropractic and Functional Medicine Clinic can help if symptoms are not stopping or worsening.

Pinched Nerves and Muscle Spasms

When multiple symptoms appear, individuals may not realize they are connected. Individuals may think aches, pains, and spasms are normal aging processes. Pinched nerves occur when there is an impingement on any one of the numerous nerves of the spine. Impingements can be caused by:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Disc degeneration
  • Herniated/ruptured discs
  • Bone spurs
  • Arthritis
  • Trauma injury

The pain symptoms from the spasm can be quick, sharp, or pulsating and throbbing. The muscles respond by tightening or spasming as the nerve sends interrupted/incomplete signals. In addition to muscle spasms, a pinched nerve can contribute to other symptoms, including the following.

  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Pins and needles sensation
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Muscle weakness

Signs a Pinched Nerve Might Be Causing Spasms

  • Sudden shooting pain that radiates down the leg or arm.
  • Weak muscles
  • Muscle atrophy – shrinking or deteriorating.
  • Chronic tingling in the extremities.
  • A burning sensation in a specific area; this could but is not necessarily the source of the pinched nerve.
  • Electrical shock-type pain accompanies the spasms.

If a pinched nerve is left untreated and continues to generate symptoms, it can affect daily life and lead to uncomfortable long-term issues. Severe nerve compression combined with inflammation can cause damage to nearby soft tissues and muscles, leading to chronic conditions. When the nerves are damaged, it can be harder to control the muscles making certain motions uncomfortable or difficult to move certain body parts.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care, massage, and decompression therapy will relieve pinched nerves and muscle spasms and restore neuromusculoskeletal system function. The body will be realigned, and patients will be trained on stretching exercises, muscle strengthening, posture training, and nutritional support to optimize the bodyโ€™s natural healing abilities to repair the damaged nerves.
