Does pinched nerve hurt?

October 13, 2016

 

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 disrupts the nerve’s function, causing pain, tingling, numbness or weakness.

 

A pinched nerve can occur at several sites in your body. A herniated disk in your lower spine, for example, may put pressure on a nerve root, causing pain that radiates down the back of your leg. Likewise, a pinched nerve in your wrist can lead to pain and numbness in your hand and fingers (carpal tunnel syndrome).With rest and other conservative treatments, most people recover from a pinched nerve within a few days or weeks. Sometimes, surgery is needed to relieve pain from a pinched nerve.

 

If you think you are suffering from back pain or neck pain it may be a pinched nerve. A board certified neurologist can effectively provide medical assistance for these kind of medical conditions. #nerve ##pinchednerve #nervepain #pain #backpain #neckpain #neurologist #specialist #neurologistinmanila #winnielimkhoo #health #news #tips #manila #philippines
