Pinched Nerve

Pinched nerves, also known as nerve compression or nerve impingement, can cause a range of uncomfortable symptoms that affect daily life. When the surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons, exert pressure on a nerve, it can lead to pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected area.

Pinched nerves commonly occur in the spine, particularly in the cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) regions. This is often due to conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, postural problems, or degenerative changes.

Burning, numbness or tingling, and pain can refer down the arm or to the mid-back if the irritated nerve is in the neck (cervical radiculopathy). If the nerve is in the lower back burning, numbness or tingling can refer down the leg. The most common nerve in the low back is the sciatic nerve, causing sciatica.

Common Cause of a Pinched Nerve

Often a common cause of pinched nerves that we see in patients is mechanical in nature. This mean the joints either stop moving properly or there are changes in the proper alignment of the spinal bones. This causes pain and stiffness, decreased range of motion, muscle spasms or tightness, and inflammation. This can irritate nearby spinal nerves.
