If left untreated, a pinched nerve will get progressively worse until the pain and spasms become overwhelming. Comprehensive chiropractic intervention can stop the spasms in their tracks and encourage long-term mobility.

Are Your Muscle Spasms Caused by Pinched Nerves?

Should you worry about your spasms? If they’re not painful, you might not think there’s anything to worry about.

Keep an eye out for these symptoms that could indicate your spasms aren’t caused by too much coffee or stress, but actually a pinched nerve.

  • Numbness or reduced sensation in extremities
  • Shooting pain that travels down the leg (this could indicate a pinched sciatic nerve)
  • Burning in the affected area
  • Muscle weakness or atrophy
  • Frequently feeling like your hands, feet, or extremities have “fallen asleep”
