Hey all, I pinched a nerve in my upper back while doing jiu-jitsu/submission wrestling training almost 4 weeks ago. I have been under the care of a great Chiropractor for the past 2 weeks. My questions are,

(A) How long to recover with chiropractic care 3x per week?

(B) What exercises should I concentrate on to protect that area and prevent it from happening again?

Thanks in advance.

Jeff

Jeff,
Great to see you here my friend... you know I'm not a doctor, but I bet rest and rehab is the key. From what I understand, even the most conditioned athletes can suffer from nerve related problems. I bet it was just an unfortunate way your body twisted, or something of that nature.

During your recovery, feel free to train with me, and we'll be certain to take it easy and very light.
