    Pinched Nerve Resources


    Facet disease, which can also be referred to as facet arthritis, is rarely the only cause of a patient’s lower back pain.

    Arthritis in the Spine

    Arthritis of the spine usually develops over time. Early on, a person may only experience joint aches after physical work or exercise, which fades and then returns as the affected joint is used or overused.

    Scar Tissue Facts

    Scar tissue in the back that forms as a result of natural healing or a previous back surgery, can often entwine nerves pinching off the supply of blood and nutrients. Discussed are the many symptoms to be on lookout for, and how you can diagnose and treat scar tissue in your back.

    Spinal Stenosis

    The word stenosis translates to “choking”, meaning that spinal stenosis is a choking of the spinal canal. Read on to discover the wealth of information provided, including symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment for spinal stenosis.

    Foraminal Stensis

    Read about information concerning foraminal stenosis, how it is diagnosed, what symptoms to be on the watch for, and how it can be treated.


    Percutaneous Discectomy

    Percutaneous Discectomy is the surgical removal of herniated disc/bulging disc material that presses on a nerve root or the spinal cord.


    A laminotomy is a surgical procedure that is used to relieve pressure off the spinal canal for the exiting nerve root and spinal cord, increasing the amount of space available for the neural tissue and thus releasing the nerve(s).


    Foraminotomy is a medical operation used to relieve pressure on nerves that are being compressed by the intervertebral foramen, the space in the vertebra where a nerve root exits the spinal canal.

    Pinched Nerve Surgery

    Minimally invasive surgical techniques performed to free a pinched nerve when conventional treatments have failed.

    Pinched Nerve Treatment

    A listing of treatment options available for a pinched nerve



    Muscular Weakness

    A common symptom of a pinched nerve is muscular weakness.

    Muscle Spasm

    A pinched nerve can send damaged signals to the muscle it controls causing it to spasm or “twitch”

    Pins and Needles

    A pinched nerve can cause symptoms of “pins and needles” to be felt in the area controlled by the nerve.

    Radiating Pain

    Radiating pain can often be felt pulsing from the area of the damage nerve to the location of the body that nerve is responsible for.


    Because nerves are in control of sending sensory signals to areas of the body, a pinched nerve may lead to symptoms of numbness in the area that the nerve controls.




    Traumatic back injury can cause conditions in the back that are know to be able to invade the space around a nerve and pinch off its blood and nutrient supply.

    Bulging Disc

    When a disc bulges, the material can often push into a nerve causing the pinched nerve effect.

    Bone Spurs

    Bone spurs are formed slowly over time, with the possibility of impinging on the nerves around them.
