Understanding A Pinched Nerve
There are many issues that can cause a pinched nerve, whether it’s repetitive movements or staying in one position for too long. Nerve compression usually occurs when the nerve is pressed between tissues and bone, tendons or ligaments. A pinched nerve could be the reason you are experiencing neck pain or lower back pain. You may notice that the pain radiates to other areas of the body, as well.
For example, if you happen to have a pinched nerve in your neck you may also notice pain, numbness or other symptoms in your elbows, wrist or fingers. Over time, a pinched nerve can lead to other problems such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome. This is why it’s so important to treat a pinched nerve as soon as possible.
