What is a Pinched Nerve and how can we help?
A pinched nerve, also called a compressed nerve, is when the spinal cord or a bundle of nerves is squeezed or damaged. It can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the affected area. Nerves are important because they carry messages to and from the brain.
Causes and Risk factors
Pinched nerves are a common health problem that affects people of all ages. It is caused by the pressure from an outside force on the sensory fibers of the spinal cord. The most common results are inability to maintain balance easily, pain that is worse with activity, numbness or weakness in an arm or leg.
