Pinched Nerve Treatment
Pinched nerve treatment is often far from simple, so it’s helpful to have true experts on your side, ready to help. If you have been suffering from the symptoms of a pinched nerve and you live in Griffin, Georgia, or another neighboring community, you can turn to Pain Care for the knowledgeable and compassionate care that you deserve. We are proud to provide the specialized care that people with acute and chronic pain conditions require – care that is often beyond what a general practitioner can offer.
One of the reasons that pinched nerve treatment can be difficult is that symptoms can point to any number of underlying conditions. In one relatively common example, a pinched nerve resulting in sciatica (pain and other symptoms that radiate down the leg) may be caused by a slipped disc in the lower spine. Understanding the specific cause of a pinched nerve may change the treatment approach, which is why Pain Care’s physicians take the time to make a thorough and accurate diagnosis.
Depending on the cause of your pinched nerve, the treatment our Griffin, GA, physicians recommend may include one or more of the following:
- Resting the affected area
- Taking medications to alleviate pain and facilitate motion
- Participating in physical therapy
- Completing regular exercise
- Injecting medication near the affected nerve
In cases where non-invasive pinched nerve treatment methods haven’t provided patients with meaningful symptom relief, Pain Care physicians may recommend minimally invasive surgery. Unlike other treatments, our outpatient procedures may be able to address symptoms at their root, so they may be a good option when other methods have fallen short.
Whatever the treatment plan we develop with you, you can feel confident knowing that experienced, board-certified physicians are looking out for your best interests. As our motto says, it’s our goal to help you regain life, restore function, and renew hope.
