Pinched Nerve Q & A

What is a pinched nerve?

A pinched nerve develops when a nerve is under too much pressure. This leads to uncomfortable symptoms that may vary in severity and make it difficult for the patient to carry out their daily activities.

A pinched nerve can develop at almost any location in the body. However, some of the most common sites are the neck and back.

What causes a pinched nerve?

A pinch nerve can develop any time a nerve is under too much pressure. Some of the conditions that may put pressure on a nerve include:

  • Inflammation in the area
  • Bone spurs
  • Herniated discs
  • Problems with tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or other structures

Some patients may not need any treatment for a pinched nerve. However, others continue to experience pain even with at-home treatments and rest. In such cases, professional treatment is recommended.

What are the symptoms of a pinched nerve?

Some of the most common symptoms of a pinched nerve include numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain in the area affected by the nerve. These symptoms may come and go based on the amount of pressure on the nerve.
