What is a Pinched Nerve?

A pinched nerve is a general term that refers to pressure put on a nerve by soft tissue, bone, or a herniated disc. The formal name for this condition is cervical radiculopathy. Many things can cause a pinched nerve including repetitive movement, poor posture, arthritis, or injury.

A common and mild symptom of a pinched nerve in your neck is waking up with a crick after sleeping in an awkward position.

A pinched nerve (or nerve compression) can disturb the nerve’s ability to function.  The pain associated with a pinched nerve can be mild or extremely intense. You may also experience symptoms such as the sensation of pins and needles or electrical shock, as well as weakness and/or numbness.  If you experience these symptoms, it’s important to see your doctor. The longer you leave it unattended, the higher chance a pinched nerve has to cause permanent nerve damage.

If you catch a pinched nerve early and are able to relieve the pressure with the help of medication and physical therapy in Brandon, FL, the nerve’s functioning will likely be restored. Physical therapy will help you retain your neck’s range of motion and strengthen your neck/back/shoulder muscles. In any case, it’s important to review your diagnosis and treatment plan with your doctor so as to maximize your healing and comfort.
