Wondering if You’re Suffering From a Pinched Nerve?

A pinched nerve can put a serious damper on your life. Pinched, or impinged, nerves can lead to inflammation of a nerve root, which is known as radiculitis. The location of the pinched nerve root can result in sensory and motor impulses being sent to and from the spinal cord to all sorts of different parts of your body. A common cause of a pinched nerve root is sciatica, which occurs when the sciatic nerve- the nerve that begins at the lumbar section of your spine and runs down your leg- becomes impinged. Symptoms of sciatica include pain running down one leg, tingling or loss of sensation in the leg, and weakness that can lead to balance problems and muscle atrophy.
