Have you ever felt a sudden, sharp pain shooting through a part of your body? It might’ve been due to a trapped nerve. At Tim Wood Healthcare, our expert osteopaths in Rainham and Maidstone, Kent, know exactly how to help. We’re committed to getting you back on your feet and feeling great.

Understanding Trapped Nerves

So, let’s get into it. What’s a trapped nerve? Picture this: a nerve getting squeezed by the surrounding tissues like bones, muscles, and tendons. This can mess up the nerve’s function, leading to symptoms like pain, tingling, or even numbness. These sneaky trapped nerves can appear anywhere in your body, from the spine to the wrist.

Repetitive movements, poor posture, injuries, and even some conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or obesity can be culprits. Symptoms can range from a mild nagging ache to intense, can’t-think-straight pain that disrupts your daily activities.

How Our Osteopaths Approach Trapped Nerves

As osteopaths, we see the body as a connected system. An issue in one spot might cause trouble somewhere else. That’s why we look at the big picture, aiming to address the root cause of your trapped nerve, not just the symptoms.

Our approach involves hands-on adjustments that can relieve pressure and reduce inflammation. This can be through techniques like manipulating soft tissue, stretching, resistance exercises, and articulation. And guess what? We don’t just treat the current pain. We also look to rebalance your body’s structure, preventing those trapped nerves from making an unwelcome return.
