reducing shooting pains

Often times, nerve pain is caused by adhesions, compression or restrictions.  These problems are prone to occur where nerves cross soft tissue planes.  A common example of this is carpal tunnel syndrome where the median nerve dives under a thick band of tissue called the transverse carpal ligament.  A non-surgical nerve release called Hydrodissection” can be used to free up these common nerve entrapments and restrictions. Hydrodissection uses ultrasound guidance to visualize the problematic nerve.  Once the restriction is isolated a small needle is placed next to the nerve and fluid is injected to free up the nerve.  The procedure is virtually painless and the effects are immediate.

sciatica

Sciatica is pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, commonly caused by compression of part of the nerve.  This compression can cause inflammation, pain and numbness that radiates from your lower back, buttock and down the back of the leg.

carpal tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome is compression of the median nerve that can cause numbness, tingling, pain or weakness in the wrist.

Peripheral Neuropathy/Neuritis

The peripheral nervous system sends signals from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body. Diabetes, infections or traumatic injuries can cause nerve damage that results in pain, numbness & tingling, burning, or weakness & cramping in the extremities; particularly the hands and feet.

 Thoracic outlet syndrome

      The thoracic outlet is the passage between the collarbone and the first rib. Physically traumatic injuries, repetitive job or sports injuries, and pregnancy can lead to a compression of the blood vessels and nerves that run through the thoracic outlet. This causes pain in the neck and shoulders, along with numbness or weakness in the fingers.
