Chiropractic Care: 3 Tests to Determine if You Have a Pinched Nerve , Lincoln, Nebraska

Chronic back and neck pain can be caused by a variety of issues, including a pinched or damaged nerve. In order to properly determine whether you have a pinched nerve, it’s important to visit a chiropractic care clinic, like Lincoln Chiropractic Center in Nebraska first. As experts in chiropractic care, they have helped hundreds of patients suffering from pinched nerves with treatment and referrals to doctors who can conduct appropriate tests.

Here are three tests your chiropractor may recommend to determine whether you have a pinched nerve:

  • Nerve Conduction Study: This test is used to measure electrical nerve impulses as well as how your muscles and nerves function. A specialist trained in performing a nerve conduction study will place electrodes directly on your skin. A tiny current will pass through your nerves. The study will then measure the electrical impulses that go through your nerve signals. A doctor will be able to tell if there is nerve damage when reviewing study results.
  • Chiropractic CareEMG Or Electromyography: During this particular test, your doctor will insert a needle electrode into specific muscles. The test will then evaluate the electrical activity within those muscles when the muscles are both contracted and resting. This test will help your doctor figure out whether nerve damage is connected to a specific muscle.
  • MRI: An MRI or magnetic resonance imaging uses radio waves and very powerful magnetic fields to create a detailed review of the human body. If your doctor believes you’re suffering from nerve root compression, they will likely schedule an MRI.

If you live in the Greater Lincoln area, and you’re looking for an experienced chiropractor that can help alleviate your chronic back pain or headaches, call Lincoln Chiropractic Center today at (402) 464-5567 to schedule your next appointment.
