Pinched Nerve

If you have unexplained pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling, you may have a pinched nerve. That’s when something presses against a nerve in your body. It stops the nerve from acting the way it’s supposed to.


  • Numbness or decreased sensation in the area supplied by the nerve
  • Sharp, aching, or burning pain, which may radiate outward
  • Tingling, pins and needles sensations (paresthesia)
  • Muscle weakness in the affected area
  • Frequent feeling that a foot or hand has fallen asleep

Treatment Options

  • Epidural steroid injection
  • Selective nerve root block
