Specific Exercises Designed for You
Overuse of muscles is almost always a complicating factor to pinched nerves. When there is overuse of some muscles, the muscles that do the opposite activity are underactive and need to be strengthened. During your exam, we assess muscle strength and tone to prescribe the exact exercises and stretches that you need.
Acupuncture And Electrical Stimulation
All forms of nerve irritation can be improved nicely by acupuncture and electrical stimulation. This helps to calm the nerves down when all the pressure cannot be removed from the nerve. In cases where we cannot remove all the pressure from the nerves, acupuncture and electrical stimulation can be the answer to living the live you want to again.
