A nerve becomes pinched as pressure is placed on the nerve. Nerves compose the central nervous system and travel from the brain and spine out into the rest of the body. Nearby tissue and bone within the spinal canal can become displaced or deteriorate and compress surrounding nerves. As the nerves become pinched, debilitating pain will arise and mobility will become limited. Pinched nerves most commonly occur within the cervical and lumbar region of the spine.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis
Localized Pain - Depending on the location of the compressed nerve, pain will be centered around this area of the spine.
Numbness & Tingling - Numbness and tingling may be central to the site of compression and may also radiate out to other areas of the body.
Radiating Pain - Pain will travel throughout the body as pressure is placed on the nerve. This pain can also extend out to the extremities.
Muscle Fatigue & Weakness - Muscles may become weakened and fatigued as the nerves that control the muscle become compromised by compression.
Cause of Osteoarthritis
Although osteoarthritis has no definite cause, there are a few leading factors that may contribute to this condition. Over time, the spine becomes worn down and is more susceptible to arthritis of the spine. Excess weight can create pressure and stress the joints which may lead to this condition. Traumatic injuries sustained from accidents or sports can result in arthritis of the spine. If there is a family history of spinal conditions, patients may be more likely to have this condition.

- I realized that Dr. Yashar genuinely cares to cure his patient with or without money, which makes him an exceptional doctor in a city that most physicians don't even listen to their patients, and all they do is to collect $ and ignore patients. At Dr. Yashar office I dealt with Amber and Michael who has been a credit to their profession and went above and beyond patient satisfaction.
