Pinched Nerve

What is a pinched nerve?

A pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues — such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. This pressure alters nerve function, causing pain, tingling, numbness, coldness and/ or weakness.

  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal arthritis
  • Pregnancy
  • An injury
  • Repetitive motions
  • Joint disease

A herniated disc in your lower spine, can put pressure on a nerve root, causing pain that radiates down the back of your leg (sciatica).

A pinched nerve in your wrist can lead to pain and numbness in your hand and fingers (carpal tunnel syndrome).

If a pinched nerve is suspected, a nerve conduction study or electromyography can help diagnosis the cause of the problem.

Nerve conduction velocity test is performed by placing electrodes on the skin to stimulate nerves with a electrical impulses. Test results tell your doctor whether you have a damaged nerve. Another useful test is a Electromyography. A needle electrode is placed into the muscle to record electrical activity. Electrical currents produced in muscles will be recorded. Test results tell your doctor if there’s damage to the nerves leading to the muscle.

A pinched nerve may be treated with medication, chiropractic, physical therapy, cortisone injection or surgery.

Our doctor’s will do a thorough review of your health history, current symptoms, treatment you have done, and determine the best course of action.
