What is a pinched nerve?

If vertebrae get misaligned, their movement sometimes creates a small gap between their two surfaces. If a person then twists or turns the wrong way during this time, the surface of the sciatic nerve can be caught in between the two vertebrae.

Every time the spine moves, it causes vertebrae to squash or pinch the sciatic nerve that is caught inside. And every time the nerve is pinched, it causes pain receptors to send pain signals down the leg and up the back, along the entire length of the sciatic nerve – a condition known as sciatica.

The most common sufferers of pinched nerves are pregnant women, due to a shift in their center of gravity that causes them to stand with a different posture that can move spinal vertebrae and pinch a nerve. Accident victims also suffer from pinched nerves because of the physical trauma of an accident and the way the vertebrae are often stretched and twisted in unusual positions. Also, older people can suffer from pinched nerves because as the body ages, the surfaces wear down. Spinal vertebrae can become looser and misaligned, pinching the nerve and causing sciatica.

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?

While seeking a diagnosis for a pinched nerve can be scary, you should see the doctor if you have experienced pain, weakness, numbness, tingling, or a pins-and-needles sensation in your back.

The type of treatment that will be best for you will depend on a variety of factors, including your age, your quality of life, your overall health, and any other conservative treatment options you may have previously tried and whether or not you have undergone any spinal surgery in the past. He also will consider the severity of your condition.

What is the recovery process?

For most people, recovery from a pinched nerve can take from as little as a few weeks up to a few months, depending upon the severity of the condition and your adherence to the recovery plan, which can include physical therapy and rest.

Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
