A pinched nerve occurs when there is compression of a nerve from ligaments, tendons or bones.
Inflammation or pressure on a nerve can be painful and irritating, interfering with everyday activities.
Some common areas of pinched nerves include neck, elbow, hand, wrist or fingers but can occur anywhere in the body.
If nerve compression occurs over an extended period the protective barrier will break down causing swelling, extra pressure and scarring may arise from the fluid buildup which interferes with the nerve function.
Some symptoms of a pinched nerve are a pain in the compressed area, radiating pain, numbness or tingling, pins and needles or weakness.
