A pinched nerve occurs when there is pressure on a nerve from surrounding bone or soft tissues. If you suspect you have a pinched nerve, the last thing you should do is take a “wait-and-see” approach. Even if you are experiencing only mild pain, it is important to get it checked out as soon as possible.
Everyone suffers from periodic aches and pains, but a pinched nerve is more than that-it also has its own unique set of symptoms.
The pain from a pinched nerve can be excruciating but many people avoid getting it checked out because they want to avoid surgery and drugs. Thankfully, there is another option.
A commitment to good posture can decrease your chances of developing many health problems-including pinched nerves.
