Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve

Pinched nerves, also known as compressed nerves or radiculopathy, can cause a range of uncomfortable sensations that affect your daily life. As experienced chiropractors, we're here to help you recognize the signs of a pinched nerve and provide effective solutions for relief.

Common Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve

  1. One of the most common symptoms of a pinched nerve is pain, which may vary in intensity and location depending on the affected nerve. You may experience sharp, shooting pain, dull aches, or radiating pain that travels along the path of the compressed nerve.

  2. Numbness or tingling sensations, often described as pins and needles, can occur in the area supplied by the compressed nerve. This sensation may be localized or extend along the affected nerve pathway, such as down the arm, to the hand, or in the leg or foot.

  3. Muscle weakness or difficulty with certain movements may occur when a nerve is compressed, as the signals between the brain and muscles are disrupted. You may notice weakness in specific muscles or a general decrease in strength and coordination.

  4. Some individuals with a pinched nerve may experience burning or radiating sensations that spread outward from the site of compression. This sensation may worsen with certain activities or movements that aggravate the nerve.

  5. Hypersensitivity or heightened sensitivity to touch, pressure, or temperature changes may occur in the area supplied by the compressed nerve. Even light touch or gentle pressure may trigger discomfort or pain.

  6. Involuntary muscle contractions or muscle spasms can be caused by compression on the nerve. These spasms may be painful and contribute to further irritation of the compressed nerve.

  7. Changes in reflexes, such as diminished or exaggerated reflex responses, may be observed when a nerve is compressed. This can be assessed during a physical examination by a healthcare professional.
