A pinched nerve can happen in a variety of places throughout the body with some of the most common being the lower spine, wrists, neck, and legs.

What to Know About Pinched Nerves

Your pinched nerve may be caused by different physical conditions such as carpal tunnel or a herniated disc. Though pinched nerves can be painful, the majority of patients find that their pinched nerve(s) goes away on its own.

If the pinched nerve does not resolve itself and you have persistent pain that lasts for more than a few days, you should seek medical attention by scheduling an appointment at Salish Integrated Medical. This is especially true if you’ve tried at-home treatments but feel like your pain is worsening as time progresses. With pinched nerves, it’s important to seek medical attention in order to identify the underlying cause of the pinched nerve to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Regen injections, which focus on nerve regeneration, may be recommended to speed up the healing of a pinched nerve. This non-invasive, drug-free method aids the body’s natural healing process.

If you’re suffering from pinched nerves, make an appointment with Salish Integrated Medical.
