Pinched nerve causes, diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, and risk factors. Pinched nerve
injuries may vary from minor, temporary damage to a more permanent condition. The term pinched nerve is often used as a catch-all phrase for injuries caused by compression, constriction, or stretching.
Pinched nerve symptoms include numbness, "pins and needles" or burning sensations, and pain radiating outward from the injured area. Sciatica
, tennis elbow
, carpal tunnel syndrome
, and peripheral neuropathy
are conditions related to pinched nerve. Early diagnosis of pinched nerve is important to prevent further damage or complications.
