Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve is a condition where a nerve gets squeezed by surrounding tissues like muscles, bones, tendons, and cartilage. This can cause numbness, weakness, pain, and tingling. It can happen in different parts of the body, like a herniated disc that presses on a nerve root and causes pain down the leg.  A pinched nerve in the wrist can lead to numbness and pain in the fingers, which is called carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s usually treatable with conservative methods, but if left untreated, it may require surgery.

Pinched Nerve

Some common causes of pinched nerves include rheumatoid or osteoarthritis, repetitive stress on the affected area, obesity, injury, or repetitive sports movements.

Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve

Signs and symptoms of a pinched nerve can be easy to detect because of the distinct pain it carries. 

  • Sharp, burning, and aching pain that feels like radiating outward
  • Decreased sensation or numbness in the area that is supplied by the nerve
  • Muscle weakness in the area that feels affected
  • Feeling that your hand or foot has fallen asleep quite frequently
  • Sensations of needles, pins, and tingling in the affected area. It is also known as paresthesia.

Prevention and Treatments for a Pinched Nerve

Pinched nerve requires proper attention and treatment. It can be easily taken into control if the following therapies or preventions are worked out with seriousness. 

  • Maintain good positioning. Do not lie down in a single position for a long time. Also, avoid crossing your legs for a long time. 
  • Maintain a healthy weight and body. 
  • Do not engage in repetitive activities for an extended period of time.  
  • Add flexibility and strength exercises to your regular exercise programs and patterns.
