Pinched Nerves

When adjacent tissues press down on one or more nerves, the compression of muscles, tendons, bones, or cartilage can result in pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness.

In certain cases, a pinched nerve signifies another issue within the body.

For instance, a herniated disc or carpal tunnel syndrome, based on the location of pain and numbness.

Typically, a combination of rest and physical therapy can address and reduce side effects of a pinched nerve in weeks or months.

Should the condition go unaddressed, a pinched nerve can result in more serious damage, contribute to chronic pain and require surgery for relief.

Whether a pinched nerve is affecting your lower back, shoulder, neck or is related to a condition like arthritis, our physical therapist will address the source of pain, numbness and strengthen the muscles in this area.
