Treat your Nerve Entrapment with Spinal Touch
A Gentle Treatment for a Trapped Nerve, or a Pinched NerveSpinal Touch Therapy is an ideal, reliable and safe treatment for Nerve Compression and Nerve Entrapment
Have you ever had a trapped nerve? Are you suffering with nerve entrapment right now? I'm not surprised really, I see trapped nerves all day. They can cause crazy amounts of pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness. Lets see how many ways, and how many places you can trap a nerve, shall we? See if you can relate to any of these.
In the upper body, you've got:
• the median nerve giving carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrist
• the median nerve giving pronator teres syndrome in the elbow
• the ulnar nerve giving cubital tunnel syndrome in the elbow
• the ulnar nerve giving Guyon's canal syndrome in the wrist
• the radial nerve giving radial nerve compression
• the suprascapular nerve giving suprascapular nerve entrapment
And, in the lower body, you've got:
• the peroneal nerve giving peroneal nerve compression in the leg
• the tibial nerve giving tarsal tunnel syndrome in the foot
• lateral cutaneous nerve giving meralgia paraesthetica in the outer thigh
• the sciatic nerve giving pain all the way down from the back to the foot
• the sciatic nerve giving piriformis syndrome in the buttock
• the iliohypogastric nerve giving pain in the lower abdomen
• the obturator nerve giving obturator nerve entrapment of the low buttock
• the pudendal nerve giving entrapment dysfunction of the genitalia
• the abdominal cutaneous nerves giving abdominal entrapment syndrome
There are many, many more types of motor dysfunction and syndromes caused by nerve entrapment, proximal and distal to the spinal column.
Nerve compression syndrome is a medical condition caused by direct pressure on a peripheral nerve. It is also known as a trapped nerve, a pinched nerve, or nerve entrapment. Normally, the symptoms affect just one particular part of the body, depending on which nerve is affected.
A nerve may be compressed by parts of your own body. You know when you crick your neck lounging on a settee, or hang your arm over the back of a chair? There may be expansion of the tissues around a nerve due to weight gain, oedema or a knock. The signs and symptoms depend on which nerve is affected and how severaly it's affected. Tingling and neuropathic pain usually occur first, followed or accompanied by a reduction in sensation or complete numbness.
Often no specific treatment is offered, as, if the problem is caused by excess weight, then there should be some relief afforded by a weight loss program. Or, if the entrapment occurs during pregnancy, then delivery usually sees a resolution, followed by a return to normal sensation. Lift your arm from the back of the chair and you get pins and needles.
The most severe back pain usually comes from a pinched nerve that leaves the spine in the lumbar region, perhaps via a herniated disc or near bone spurs, or from spinal stenosis or arthritis. The second most common place for pinched nerves is in the neck, upper arm, or carpal tunnel, which becomes evident by symptoms of numbness in the hand. Muscle spasm or strain in either area very often results in moderate to strong pain.
Why do you think Spinal Touch is beneficial for nerve entrapment?
The thing about trapped nerves is that the symptoms can be very painful at one extreme, or just numb at the other. The thing all trapped nerves have in common is they don't pinch themselves. Something else is acting on the nerve. This is either going to be a bone (as in stenosis), or a muscle (as in compression). If you've been suffering for ages and ages, please don't give up hope, it may be an idea for you to give Spinal Touch a try.
What we can achieve with Spinal Touch and Bio-Stress Release is a serious relaxation of the muscles causing compression or entrapment of the nerve. This has the effect of releasing the muscles grip on the affected nerve, and any others close by. This will allow the trapped nerve to reduce any inflammation, or come back to its normal size, and allow the electrical impulses in the nerve to travel normally. As tension is released in the area of the muscles and bones and joints, the effect of all this relaxation and subtle movement is to reduce the pain felt by the patient.
Spinal Touch is a very gentle, physical, light touch therapy which is very relaxing to receive and very effective in reducing pain in stressed and damaged muscles, and trapped or damaged nerves, and joints.

If you've tried everything else, don't let it go on and on, perhaps it's time to give Spinal Touch a try. Please don't ever think there is nothing more you can do. There is always hope that taking action can make the difference. Have you tried Spinal Touch before? No? Even if everyone around you is advising you to throw tablets at your problem, remember they only MASK the pain, they don't do anything to change your state, nor do they do anything to address the cause. Allow your instinct to lead you toward a gentle physical approach. The relaxation induced postural re-alignment afforded by Spinal Touch Therapy, will help release any nerve entrapment in your body, which will help to reduce the pain.
