If you’re one of the millions who suffer from headaches, it could be due to a pinched nerve in your neck. This scenario is called a cervicogenic headache.
At Texas Spine & Sports Rehab Clinic, we see pinched nerves every day in the office. We want you to know the signs and symptoms of this condition so you know when to come in and see us. Conservative chiropractic care can treat most cases.
The Signs and Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve in Your Neck
A pinched nerve in your neck is associated with muscle spasms, pain when moving your neck, pain in your arm and shoulder on the same side, numbness, tingling, and even muscle weakness.
Pinched nerves in the neck cause headaches by compressing the nerve which generates a feeling of pain along the nerve’s pathway. This triggers a headache that radiates from the back of your head to your forehead.
The most common reasons for a pinched nerve in the neck is a herniated disc, disc degeneration, cervical spinal stenosis, injury, arthritis and obesity. After a thorough examination for an accurate diagnosis, we can treat your pinched nerve with either spinal decompression, physical therapy, acupuncture, graston therapy and myofascial release.
