Nerves are spread throughout the human body, sending messages to the brain. When there is any damage to the body, the nerves send signals of pain to the brain. This protects the body by having a built-in boundary for limitations and serves as a warning system. Each nerve has a specific section of care; if one nerve isn’t doing it’s job, the affected area would become numb and the area near the affected area would feel radiating pain; the nerves along the path of the pinched nerve would frequently weaken and become numb or painful.
Each individual nerve is essential for a properly functioning body; when a nerve is compressed it is known as a pinched nerve (or compressed nerve). This is when a nerve is compressed between tissues, such as tendon, bone, and ligament. The most vital place for a pinched nerve would be near the spine because the spine connects all the nerves and is the path that leads nerve roots to the brain; if a nerve root were compressed, it would cut off connection for all the nerves along the path it is on.
A pinched nerve may be the result of one of the following:
treatment varies depending upon the severity of the pinched nerve, which can be determined by speaking with a pain specialist from Pegasus pain management. In a minor case, the affected area may just need to be rested and you should avoid doing activities that worsen the symptoms. If the pinched nerve is still painful after a few days, then the treatment determined by a pain doctor (such as physical therapy, medication, or cortisone injections) would be used to relieve pain, shrink swollen tissue surrounding the nerve, and release the nerve from compression. If the pinched nerve is even more severe, then you may need surgery. A pinched nerve could be temporary, but it can also have a permanent effect. The sooner you get treatment, the faster you get pain relief.
