5 Signs Your Muscle Spasms are From Pinched Nerves

Woman Suffering from Muscle Spasms Caused by Pinched NervesPeople often think that aches, pains, and spams are just normal parts of the aging process.

Sometimes when we suffer from multiple pains, we may not believe they’re connected. After all, muscle spasms are extremely common and happen for many reasons across the entire body.

If you suffer from spasms in your back or extremities, however, a pinched nerve might be the culprit – and chiropractic care can fix it.

Are Pinched Nerves the Cause of Your Muscle Spasms?

Pinched nerves, resulting in spasms can happen anywhere. Sciatic pain, for example, happens when your sciatic nerve becomes compressed or damaged from a herniated disc or another alignment issue.

Here are a few signs a pinched nerve might be causing your spasms:

  1. Sudden shooting pain that radiates down your leg or arm
  2. Weak muscles or muscle atrophy (shrinking or deterioration)
  3. Frequent tingling in your extremities (feeling of “falling asleep”)
  4. A burning sensation in one specific area (the source of the pinched nerve)
  5. An intense electrical shock-type pain accompanies the spasms

How Chiropractic Care in Plantation Can Help

Believe it or not, spasms, pain, or weakness in your arms, hands, or legs is often caused by a pinched nerve or misalignment in your spine. Chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulation make sure your central nervous system gets back into working order so the rest of your body can function properly.

Chiropractic care and stretching also encourage proper posture and support your body’s natural healing ability so damaged nerves can repair themselves.
