What is a pinched nerve?
A pinched nerve in your neck is simply defined as a nerve under pressure. There are a number of ways to get a pinched nerve, the most common being inflammation, damage, or trauma to the neck due to injury, whiplash, or an infection in the nervous system. Other causes include a nerve disc that slips out of place in the neck, spinal stenosis, disc degeneration, and cervical arthritis.
The symptoms of a pinched nerve in the neck are easy to recognize but can also be attributed to something else, like when you wake up in the morning with a crick in your neck. A pinched nerve feels much the same. Symptoms are usually felt in the neck, shoulders, arms, and even down into the hands.
How is a pinched nerve treated?
The condition may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain. For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.
Who is a candidate for treatment?
During your evaluation, your doctor will want to discuss your complete medical history, including any recent treatments to your neck or back. He will ask you about the severity of the pain, the location of the pain, and how long you have experienced this condition.
Where the pain is located will likely gauge your symptoms and the treatment. For instance, C6 and C7 are the most commonly pinched nerves with symptoms including numbness and weakness in the arms and hands. C8 is the least common nerve to be pinched. Symptoms associated with that include a weakened handgrip, numbness, and tingling.
What is the recovery process?
Most people with pinched nerves in their necks recover within a few days, but recovery could last as long as a few weeks. You can expedite the healing process by following your doctor’s recommendations.
Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
