Symptoms And Causes of Compressed Nerves
A spinal nerve can be compressed as the result of a herniated disc. It can also be caused by a slip and fall accident, workplace accident or construction accident. The symptoms you experience depend on where the injury is located in the spine. Below are some examples of the symptoms you may experience:
- Back or neck pain
- Muscle stiffness
- Difficulty coordinating the hands or feet
- Bowel or bladder problems
- Numbness or weakness in the extremities
These symptoms may result in permanent or temporary disability. You may be unable to perform the activities of daily living or return to work. The treatment recommended depends on the severity of the injury. Physical therapy, pain management and steroids are some of the treatments recommended. If those treatments fail, then surgery may be performed. Surgery can help alleviate a compressed or pinched nerve.
