A Pinched Nerve in the spine is often the result of another underlying spinal condition. Spinal nerves become entrapped or “pinched” after they are compressed by another part of the spine.
Pain associated with pinched nerves often manifests as sharp localized pain in the neck or lower back.
This pain may also extend down into the extremities causing radicular pain. Sudden movements or certain positions may increase this pain.
Some of the most common causes of pinched nerves in the spine include:
• Herniated Discs
• Spinal Stenosis
• Bone Spurs
Pinched nerves in the spine are often a common cause of Sciatica, as well.
