Radiculopathy Treatment

man in plaid holding elbowThe human body is a compilation of interconnected systems, and when one link in the chain is affected, it can influence the entire system. Radiculopathy is one such condition, impacting nerves and causing pain to radiate from its source to different areas in the body. At Farrar Family Chiropractic, our empathetic and professional care addresses the complexities of radiculopathy to provide relief to our patients.


Evaluating the Effects of Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy often surfaces as pain originating in the spine and extending to the arms or legs due to a pinched nerve. It’s not just limited to discomfort; it may provoke symptoms like numbness or weakness along the nerve’s pathway, potentially disrupting your daily life and activities.

At Farrar Family Chiropractic, we understand each patient and every case is unique. Our care is tailored to your individual needs, and we pride ourselves on providing a comfortable atmosphere where patients find hope and healing as they progress with their recovery.

How We Assess And Treat Radiculopathy

Our team begins with a thorough evaluation, pinpointing the source of nerve impingement, which could be nestled anywhere from the neck down to the wrist. It’s not uncommon to encounter a “double crush” syndrome, where a nerve is pinched in more than one location, complicating diagnosis and treatment.

We conduct range-of-motion studies, postural evaluations, palpation, and X-rays to determine joint health and uncover any underlying conditions. For more complex cases, we may recommend an MRI for a more in-depth examination.

Using our five-point approach, we search for pinched nerves that may have previously been overlooked and could contribute to your discomfort. Some surgeries, such as those for carpal tunnel syndrome, have low success rates because other compression sites were not addressed. Every person is unique, and we treat you that way.

A Multifaceted Approach for Best Results

Each care plan involves a blend of techniques and therapy targeted to the individual and designed to offer pain relief and optimal recovery. Some of these methods include

  • Spinal Adjustments—our gentle and effective spinal adjustments help realign your spine into its natural position without unnecessary force
  • Decompression Therapy—commonly used as an adjunct to adjustments, this therapy helps address nerve impingements in the neck
  • Complementary Muscle Work—we may incorporate muscle stimulation, heat or ice therapy, stretches, and muscle work to ensure the affected area is primed for adjustment
