A Chiropractic Guide to Pinched Nerves in Redding, CA

A pinched nerve, also referred to as a “compressed nerve,” is simply an unnatural pressure being applied to one of your nerves by surrounding bone or tissue. In almost all instances, this pressure is the result of misalignment in your musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. The pain you experience from a pinched nerve is your body’s way of telling you something needs to be adjusted. Your brain recognizes the misalignment and is communicating with you that it’s time for a change. If the misalignment is allowed to persist, the area around the pinched nerve might continue to swell, with the possibility of more serious damage occurring. Dealing with a pinched nerve is as simple as having your spine re-aligned, and that’s where we come!

Ideal Spine Alignment

Chiropractic First in Redding, CA utilizes advanced spinal research, known as Chiropractic BioPhysics, to bring your spine into its naturally ideal position. Our methods combine trained human touch with personalized exercises and scientific rehabilitation, allowing our patients to undergo their own unique journeys to whole-body wellness.

Have you ever been through the cold white corridors of a public hospital? At Chiropractic First, we believe a more personal, human environment is better suited for recovery. Drugs and medicine are too often used as band-aids, masking symptoms by desensitizing your body, rather than addressing the root cause of your pain.

Numerous scientific studies have revealed that even the simplest forms of human touch can have a powerful healing effect on both your mind and body. Our highly-trained team understands how to partner with your body’s natural healing process, harnessing the power of human touch. If you’re ready to try something that works – if you’re done with temporary fixes – if you’re tired of the pain – contact our downtown Redding office today.
