You might notice a discomfort that comes and goes or is present all the time. See your Integrity Spine & Orthopedics provider at the first sign of a pinched nerve to reduce the risk of ongoing or crippling symptoms.

You can’t always avoid a pinched nerve. However, using good posture, avoiding overuse, maintaining an ideal body weight, and getting regular exercise will reduce your risk.
Our team of specialists can often pinpoint a pinched nerve after reviewing your symptoms and medical history. We check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and order several diagnostic tests and procedures. This can include X-rays or another imaging procedure, blood tests, nerve studies, or a spinal tap.
The results of these efforts can provide us with the information needed to reach a diagnosis and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Standard treatments for a pinched nerve include:
Physical therapy and manual manipulation can ease the pressure placed on nerves by surrounding tissues.
Medication can reduce the bothersome symptoms — including pain and inflammation — caused by a pinched nerve.
While often a last resort, minimally invasive surgery can alter or remove tissues that squeeze a painfully pinched nerve.
