Nerve pain is a common reason people seek treatment from our team in Worthing.
Irritation of nerves can cause a variety of symptoms from pins and needles and numbness to burning. The symptoms and pain can occur anywhere along the nerves pathway, commonly affecting the arms, legs or face.
There are many reasons why a nerve can become irritated and inflamed from disc issues in the low back and neck to muscle tension around the nerve and bony pressure. There can also be other reasons for it, which should be considered, such as MS, diabetic neuropathy or tumours for example. These lists are not exhaustive, as the reasons for nerve pain are extensive.
Common nerve pains we treat in Worthing
Sciatica is one of the most common reasons patients attend our practice for treatment. Pain affects the leg and can be severe and debilitating.
Carpal tunnel syndrome- giving rise to nerve pain in the hand. This can cause issues with dexterity in the hand and fingers.
Trapped nerves in the neck- this can lead to pains in the shoulder, arm, forearm, hand or entire limb. Pain can be similar to that of sciatica, just in the arm and not the leg.
Nerve pain treatment in Worthing
The 1st step towards treating any nerve issue is to find out the cause of the problem. Our osteopaths are trained to review a patients medical background, lifestyle, social history, family history and presenting symptoms. They will assess, as appropriate, to establish what the cause of the problem is, before starting treatment or referring, as required.
Osteopathic treatment will aim to restore function to the area, by working on the muscles and joints, using massage, articulation and gentle manipulation techniques. We offer a wide range of treatment approaches, that are tailored to each patient’s needs, age and presenting complaint.
At Broadwater Osteopaths we work as a team of therapists, utilising the skillsets between the 13 of us to help patients.
