Nerve Impingement: you’ve heard of it, but what is it, and how can Massage Therapy help?

Nerve impingement, or a pinched nerve, occurs where there is too much pressure applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues such as bone, tendon, cartilage, or muscles.

Pinched nerves can be caused by a number of conditions:

  • Injury

  • Arthritis

  • Overuse

  • Prolonged positions

  • Diabetes

Some common signs and symptoms that might indicate a nerve impingement:

  • Numbness

  • Decreased sensation

  • Sharp, aching, or burning pain

  • Tingling

⭐ Massage therapy can target the area of a pinched nerve, and provide effective relief from the symptoms when the cause of nerve compression is stressed or tight muscles. It helps the muscles relax, and also help reduce the pain that comes along with it.
