Pinched Nerve – Symptoms and Causes
A pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. A pinched nerve can occur in many places and can cause pain, tingling, numbness or weakness. Nerves extend from your brain and spinal cord, sending important messages throughout your body. If you have a pinched nerve (nerve compression) your body may send you warning signals such as pain. Don’t ignore these warning signals.
Most people recover from a pinched nerve within days or weeks. In more severe cases, there will be surgery required. If this is the case, please contact us to setup a consultation to get this taken care of right away!
