What is a Pinched Nerve?
A pinched nerve occurs when there is "compression" (pressure) on a nerve. The pressure may be the result of repetitive motions or it may happen from holding your body in one position for long periods, such as keeping elbows bent while sleeping.If you have a pinched nerve (nerve compression) your body may send you warning signals such as pain.For example, inflammation or pressure on a nerve root exiting the spine may cause neck or low back pain. It may also cause pain to radiate from the neck into the shoulder and arm (cervical radiculopathy) or pain may radiate into the leg and foot (lumbar radiculopathy or sciatic nerve pain).These symptoms may result from changes that develop in the spine's discs and bones. For example, if a disc weakens or tears -- known as a herniated disc -- pressure can get put on a spinal nerve. Nerve compression in your neck or arm may also cause symptoms in areas such as your Elbow, Hand, Wrist, and Fingers.This can lead to conditions such as Peripheral neuropathy, Carpal tunnel syndrome, and Tennis elbow.
Pinched Nerve Treatments
Damage from a pinched nerve may be minor or severe. It may cause temporary or long-lasting problems. The earlier you get a diagnosis and treatment for nerve compression, the more quickly you'll find relief.
You may find that you benefit greatly from simply resting the injured area and by avoiding any activities that tend to worsen your symptoms. In many cases, that's all you need to do. If symptoms persist or pain is severe, see your doctor. You may need one or more types of treatment to shrink swollen tissue around the nerve. In more severe cases, it may be necessary to remove material that's pressing on a nerve, such as Scar tissue, or Disc material.
Treatment may include taking Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen or Steroid injections. These injections may reduce swelling and allow inflamed nerves to recover. Physical therapy will help stretch and strengthen your body.
