Pinched Nerve Treatment in CharlotteWhen your muscles start spasming, the sharp, throbbing pain can stop you in your tracks, or even leave you flat on your back.

What causes muscle spasms? Oftentimes, the root cause is a pinched nerve.

Thankfully, Dr. Cerwin and his team can treat this condition and reduce your pain.

Muscle Spasms: Why They Might Be Caused by Pinched Nerves

Spasms can be caused by a wide range of issues, including:

  • Dehydration
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Poor circulation
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Electrolyte imbalances

Another cause of spasms is a pinched nerve.

Compression of a nerve can be caused by several factors, including herniated discs and tumors. Additionally, your muscles, tendons, bones, and cartilage can impinge upon one or more nerves throughout your body.

Along with the spasms, you might also notice some of the following symptoms:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Muscle weakness

How a Charlotte Chiropractor Can Treat Both Your Pinched Nerves and Spasms

Why would your muscles, tendons, bones, or cartilage compress your nerves? The likely cause is spinal misalignment.

When your spine is out of alignment, it causes tension and strain, which can lead to muscle weakness and pain.

With regular chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Cerwin and his team, all the tissues close to your spine and nerves function properly, which reduces your risk of pinched nerves.

If you’ve been suffering from muscle strain, tension, and spams, a therapeutic massage will give you a lot of relief.
