Pinched spinal nerves can cause intense pain in the back and other parts of the body. This condition occurs when there is pressure on the nerve roots that exit the spinal cord. The most common causes of nerve entrapment include herniated discs, degenerative changes in the spine, and injuries.

Causes of spinal nerve entrapment
Nerve entrapment can be caused by various factors:

  • Herniated disc: When the disc between the vertebrae slips out and presses on the nerve.
  • Degenerative changes: Changes in the spine caused by aging, such as osteoarthritis.
  • Injuries: Physical trauma that can lead to displacement of spinal structures.
  • Spinal Stenosis: A narrowing of the spinal canal that puts pressure on the nerve roots.

Symptoms of nerve entrapment

The most common symptoms include:

  • Back pain: Localized pain in the lower back or neck.
  • Radiating pain: Pain that spreads from the neck to the arms, or from the back to the legs.
  • Tingling and weakness: In affected extremities.
  • Loss of reflexes: Decreased reflex activity in affected areas.

Physical therapy as a treatment

Physical therapy plays a key role in treating pinched nerves.

Treatment includes:

  • Stretching and strengthening exercises: Help relieve pressure on nerves and strengthen the muscles around the spine.
  • Manual therapy: Techniques such as chiropractic and massage to improve mobility.
  • Electrotherapy: Using electrical stimulation to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Shockwave: This therapy can help reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Electroacupuncture: a modern method of treatment by applying electricity to acupuncture points.

Prevention and advice

To prevent nerve entrapment, it is important to:

  • Maintain proper posture: Proper posture reduces strain on the spine.
  • Exercise regularly: Physical activity keeps muscles strong and flexible.
  • Avoid heavy loads: Proper lifting and avoiding heavy loads reduces the risk of injury.
