Pinched Nerve Treatment in Webster, TX

Pinched Nerve Treatment in Webster, TX

A pinched nerve is a painful experience, regardless of the cause, playing a sport, injury, or sleeping in a weird position, it can be a pain ... literally. Also known as a compressed nerve, pinched nerves are usually a result of bone or connective tissue placing too much pressure on a nerve. This pressure causes inflammation, impeding the nerve function which our bodies interpret as pain.

Causes of Pinched Nerves

Causes of pinched nerve may include:

  • Obesity
  • Incorrect posture
  • Aggressive sports or training
  • Bone spurs
  • Trauma/injury
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Family history of pinched nerves
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Herniated disc

Most patients experience pain as the main symptom of a pinched nerve, both local and/or radiating outward to the peripheries (away from the center of the body, the extremes being hands and feet). Numbness, Paresthesia (painful “pins and needles” sensation) and weakness in limbs affected. The pain may present as sharp, a dull aching or even a burning sensation.  

Pinched Nerve Treatment Options

Most suffering from a pinched nerve respond to recommend home care and rest, with the typical recovery time being within a week's time. If pain and symptoms persist beyond a week, seek medical attention. Ignoring a pinched nerve can lead to lasting nerve damage and chronic symptoms.

Available treatments include:

  • NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
  • Physical therapy
  • Oral or injected corticosteroids
  • Chiropractic care
  • Surgery

If you have a sudden sharp pain, numbness or painful tingling sensation seek medical attention, it may be a pinched nerve.
