Pinched Nerve Q & A

What is a Pinched Nerve?

A pinched nerve can develop when nearby tissue puts excessive pressure on the nerve. This partially interrupts normal nerve signaling and triggers unpleasant symptoms like pain, a pins-and-needles feeling, weakness, or numbness.
You can have pinched nerves nearly anywhere, from your neck to your wrists to the lumbar (lower) spine. It’s quite common to experience pinched nerve symptoms in more than just the place where the nerve is compressed.

For example, if you have sciatica, the long nerve moving through your lower back and legs grows pinched or compressed. This can often lead to radiating pain that shoots through your buttock and leg.

Sometimes, a pinched nerve resolves naturally within a couple of weeks. But, if you have persistent symptoms and resting at home isn’t helping, it’s best to seek help from pain management specialist Dr. Coccaro at Precision Pain Management, LLC, as soon as possible.

What are the Symptoms Associated with a Pinched Nerve?

Pain is often the main symptom of a pinched nerve. It might feel like a sharp pain that can worsen and radiate when you move in a certain way. Or the pain can be almost constant. Along with the pain, a pinched nerve can cause:

● Leg, buttocks, or another area of your body falling asleep
● Pins-and-needles feeling
● Sudden muscle weakness
● Burning sensation
● Numbness, which may come and go

For many sufferers, pinched nerve symptoms are most severe while lying down, sleeping, or in the moments after waking up.

How do you Treat Pinched Nerves?

Dr. Coccaro and his team treat pinched nerves according to your symptoms and situation. In some cases, physical therapy, and conservative care work effectively. But, if your pinched nerve pain is chronic, you need a different approach. Dr. Coccaro may recommend one or more of the following:

● Injections, which allow your nerve time to heal naturally Botox® therapy
● Regenerative medicine to boost your healing power
● Spinal cord stimulation to disable nerve signaling
● Radiofrequency ablation to disable nerves
● Minimally invasive lumbar decompression (MILD® therapy) to relieve spine pressure
● Intraspine spacer with Vertiflex, ZIP or Minuteman to free pinched nerve

With these innovative pain relief treatments, you won’t have to rely on narcotics or have major surgery. Dr. Coccaro’s goal is to help you live pain-free without the worry of drug dependence or treatment side effects.
