A pinched nerve is a condition in which a nerve is compressed or squeezed by the surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles, or tendons.
This compression can interfere with the nerve's normal function and cause symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness. Pinched nerves can occur anywhere in the body but are most common in the neck and lower back.
Symptoms of a pinched nerve depend on the location of the nerve and can be felt in the neck, back, arms and legs.
A pinched nerve can cause sharp or burning pain as well as numbness, tingling and muscle weakness.
A pinched nerve can affect people of all ages, although it is more common in older adults. People who engage in repetitive motions are also at increased risk.
"Pinched nerves can be really uncomfortable and interfere with daily activities. If you're experiencing symptoms such as pain, numbness, or weakness, it's a good idea to see a specialist.
