What Causes Pinched Nerves?
The nerves in your body extend from your brain and spinal cord and send messages throughout your body. When a nerve becomes compressed, it is your body’s warning sign for pain. Pressure on the nerves may be the result of repetitive motions and can lead to discomfort in various parts of the body. Neck and back pain can be a result of the changes that develop in the spine’s discs and bones.
Warning Signs of Pinched Nerves
There are a variety of symptoms when it comes to nerve compression. Interestingly, you may have additional symptoms besides pain. Here are some of the more common symptoms of pinched nerves:
• Pain, particularly in the lower back or neck
• Radiating pain, such as sciatica
• Numbness or tingling
• The feeling of a burning sensation
• Weakness with certain activities
