What are pinched nerves and why should you have them treated?
Pinched nerves are incredibly common, if you have one, you will know. It can be hard to live with. But you don’t have to! People come to us all the time describing a pinched or trapped nerve, so we are very used to dealing with this complaint.
The term “pinched nerve” is used by most people to describe an irritated or inflamed nerve where the nerve itself is not actually pinched.
You may wonder what could have caused your pinched nerve.
Well, it’s usually caused by pressure on the nerve. So if you have been doing any of the following, then this could well be the cause:
holding your body in one position for long periods,
if your nerve is pressed between tissues such as ligaments, tendons or bones,
trigger points (these are very tight “knots” of muscle which develop when muscles are either chronically overworked or injured)
What are the symptoms of a pinched nerve?
If you want to be a bit more sure that you have a pinched nerve, check this list of symptoms:
pain in the area of compression, such as the neck or low back,
numbness or tingling,
“pins and needles” or a burning sensation,
weakness, especially when active.
You may also find that these symptoms worsen when you try certain movements, such as turning your head or straining your neck.
What can we do about it?
