What are Pinched Nerves?

Health & Nutrition - - HEALTH FLASH -

Apinched nerve, which hap­pens when bone, mus­cle, car­ti­lage, or ten­dons press on a nerve, can cause sig­nif­i­cant dis­com­fort and weak­ness. Of­ten oc­cur­ring in the neck, wrist, or back of the leg, the com­pressed nerve can cause pain ra­di­at­ing down a limb or numb­ness and a loss of sen­sa­tion. In most cases, the pain due to a pinched nerve re­solves within days or weeks. If dis­com­fort doesn’t abate within a few days, or weak­ness ac­com­pa­nies your pain, con­sult your doc­tor.
