We’ve treated many patients who mistake back pain as a sign of a pinched nerve. More often than not, that’s not the case. But if your pain is due to a pinched nerve, it’s important to treat it as quickly as possible. If you’re looking for help with treating a pinched nerve, chiropractic may be the best choice for you.


Your nerves send signals throughout your body. When a nerve is compressed or subjected to pressure that interferes with its ability to transmit those signals, it is considered pinched. Pinched nerves aren’t quite as common as most people think. Depending on the location of the pinched nerve, you will experience pain differently. Most patients with pinched nerves describe the pain as radiating through the body, which makes it difficult to identify where the pain is originating from.


Based on the many patients in Rochelle that we’ve treated with pinched nerves, the answer is yes! Chiropractic care is an excellent treatment for a pinched nerve and the pain associated with it. Some patients experience relief almost instantly, where others may take weeks or months to find pinched nerve relief. Many factors affect the healing process, and each patient is unique. Treatments vary on the individual, where the pinched nerve is located, and how severe the damage to the nerve is. Our experienced chiropractors will identify the cause of the compression or pressure on the nerve and correct it to remove the problem. We will also give you tips to avoid repeating the same movement or activity that caused the pinched nerve in the first place, hopefully preventing you from having to go through that pain again!


How long does it take for nerve irritation to be reduced?

Some patients experience instant relief. Others discover it can take many weeks or months. Many factors can affect the healing process. How long have you had your problem? Are you keeping your appointments? Are you getting the proper rest, exercise and nutrition? Do you smoke? Are you in otherwise good health? Within a short time, most patients feel enough relief to get back to their daily routines.

What about my friend who only needed one visit?

It’s true there are rare instances in which a single visit can produce the pain relief that many patients seek. However, the effect is often short lived. Because underlying muscles and soft tissues have not been strengthened and retrained, a relapse often occurs. Our experience has found that when patients begin chiropractic care as adults, they have considerable structural and functional damage from years of neglect. A single “miracle” adjustment rarely produces permanent change.

Chiropractic addresses the integrity of your nervous system and is a natural solution to many health problems. Schedule an appointment and learn more about how chiropractic care can help with your pinched nerve.

Our Working Process

What to Expect


Relief Chiropractic Care

When patients come to us in pain, our top priority is to help relieve that pain so they can find comfort and feel better. While some patients feel relief in as little as one visit, it can take 2-3 visits per week for 4-12 weeks to achieve lasting real pain relief.


Corrective/Restorative Chiropractic Care

Muscles and tissues heal more completely during the corrective care phase, which prevents and reduces the risk of further injury. This phase typically requires 4-8 visits per month for 6-24 months depending on the severity of the issue.


Wellness Chiropractic Care

Once your body has completely healed, periodic adjustments become an important part of your healthcare regimen to avoid problems in the future. Based on your lifestyle and goals, we hope to see you 1-4 times per month.
