Pinched Nerves

What is a Pinched Nerve?

A Pinched Nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons. This pressure disrupts the nerve's function, causing pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness. Pinched nerves can occur in various parts of the body but are most commonly found in the spine, leading to neck or lower back pain that can radiate to the arms or legs.

Symptoms of Pinched Nerves

The symptoms of a pinched nerve include sharp, aching, or burning pain which may radiate outward, tingling sensations or numbness in the area served by the nerve, muscle weakness in the affected area, and a feeling that a foot or hand has "fallen asleep." The symptoms can worsen while sleeping.

Treatment for Pinched Nerves

The Spine Center employs a comprehensive approach to the treatment of pinched nerves, focusing on relieving pressure on the nerve and alleviating symptoms. Treatment plans designed by Dr. Saqib Siddiqui may include medication to reduce inflammation and pain, and advanced interventions like epidural steroid injections for relief. For patients whose symptoms do not improve with conservative treatments, surgical options may be considered to relieve nerve compression and restore function.
