A pinched nerve happens when your surrounding tissues, bones, cartilage, tendons, or muscles, apply too much pressure to your nerve. The pressure disrupts your nerve’s functioning and can result in pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling.
Sciatica is back pain resulting from a problem with the sciatic nerve. You can have a pinched nerve at various sites in your body, such as a herniated disk in your lower spine that’s putting pressure on a nerve root and causing pain radiating down the back of your leg (sciatica).
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition involving a pinched nerve in your wrist that leads to pain and numbness in your hand and fingers.
Some of the signs and symptoms of a pinched nerve include:
Problems associated with a pinched nerve might be worse when you lie down.
Various conditions might cause nerve compression, such as:
If you only have a pinched nerve for a short time, there might not be any permanent damage, and once the pressure is relieved, your nerve function usually returns to normal. If the pressure continues, it can lead to chronic pain and permanent nerve damage.
After any necessary testing, such as blood work, X-rays, a nerve conduction study, or electromyography (EMG), your Throgs Neck Multi Care, P.C. provider devises your personalized treatment plan. To treat your pinched nerve, they might recommend various treatments, such as:
If conservative treatments aren’t successful, your Throgs Neck Multi Care, P.C. provider might recommend a surgical procedure to take pressure off the nerve. The specifics of your procedure vary depending on the location and cause of your pinched nerve.
Surgery might involve the removal of bone spurs or replacing a herniated disk in your spine with an artificial disc. For carpal tunnel syndrome, your provider can sever the carpal ligament to provide more room for the nerve to pass through your wrist.
