Irritation or Compression of Spinal Nerve Roots

What is Irritation or Compression of Spinal Nerve Roots?

Irritation or compression of spinal nerve roots, often resulting from conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or bone spurs, can cause significant discomfort and neurological symptoms. This issue occurs when the nerve roots exiting the spinal column become pinched or irritated, leading to pain, weakness, or numbness in the areas of the body served by those nerves.

Symptoms of Irritation or Compression of Spinal Nerve Roots

Symptoms can vary widely depending on which spinal nerve roots are affected but typically include radiating pain, such as sciatica, that extends from the spine into the arms or legs. Other symptoms may encompass numbness, tingling, or weakness in the affected limbs, reduced reflexes, and in severe cases, changes in bowel or bladder function.
