Nerve tension is pain that occurs because a nerve is being compressed or stuck in its surrounding tissue which prevents it from moving within its tract like it normally does. This can happen for a variety of reasons. If a joint has been immobile for a period of time it increases the risk that a nerve can get a little stuck or entrapped within the surrounding tissues. This along with injuries to the surrounding area or the nerve itself can lead to tension being placed upon that nerve. There are ways of decompressing the nerve and restoring proper function. Depending on the site and the restriction, different types of therapy can be used to get you back to functioning at 100%. Our doctors and therapists are experts at identifying nerve tension and correcting it so that you can get back to optimal health.
