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 A Pinched Nerve
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 Pinched Nerve
As the spinal structure degenerates over time, nerves become more susceptible to compression. Existing conditions such as spinal arthritis (osteoarthritis), herniated discs, bone spurs, and degenerative disc disease are the some of the most common causes of a pinched nerve. Injuries sustained from trauma or sports can contribute to the development of this condition. If there is a family history of spinal conditions, there is an increased risk of developing a pinched nerve.

Diagnosis of Pinched Nerve
Dr. Yashar performs an exhaustive consultation with the patient to fully diagnose their spinal condition. He will assess their symptoms, evaluate their medical history and specific needs to create a personalized treatment plan. X-rays, CT scans and MRIs may be performed to properly diagnose this condition.
Initial treatment may include anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy and corticosteroid injections. If conservative treatment fails, Dr. Yashar may recommend a spine surgery. It is only when the body rejects controlled methods that surgical routes may be taken. At Yashar Neurosurgery, we utilize the most innovative surgical techniques and procedures to treat spinal conditions. In most cases, a pinched nerve may be effectively treated by a decompression procedure.
Dr. Yashar offers laminotomy, foraminotomy, discectomy and fusion procedures to treat a pinched nerve.
- 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.
