Nerve pain caused by a brachial plexus injury is not uncommon, but not necessarily normal. It’s a condition where finding the root cause may be the only way to find relief. Some people are able to take ibuprofen or herbs to lessen the discomfort, but with this injury, you can not only lose mobility but also sensation — from shoulder to hand. If you suffer from a brachial plexus nerve injury, finding a great chiropractor will be highly beneficial.
- With an injury to the brachial plexus nerve bundle, you’ll likely experience:
- Numbness in your shoulder, arm, or hand (possibly all three)
- Weakness in your shoulder, arm, or hand
- Tingling or burning
How a chiropractor can help
A chiropractor will likely be able to treat your nerve issues with rotational chiropractic manipulation. While this may eventually provide relief, it may not always be ideal. More specifically, a targeted chiropractic treatment may be needed, and this can look like trigger point activation of the scalene muscles, in addition to the pectoralis minor. Receiving a precision upper cervical adjustment is also quite effective, so seek out a practitioner who focuses exclusively on it.
