The nerve roots branch into nerves which carry motor and sensory signals between the brain and the rest of the body. When a part of the spine presses on a nerve root, the brain’s pain receptors can be triggered, telling the stimulated part of the body that it is supposed to experience discomfort. Other symptoms that a compressed nerve might produce include:
- Radiating or shooting pain along the length of the nerve
- Tingling or a loss of sensation (numbness) in the part of the body stimulated by the compressed nerve
- Weakness or a loss of function in a muscle group related to the compressed nerve
The area of the body experiencing symptoms will depend on where in the spine the compressed nerve is located. Cervical nerve compression produces symptoms in the neck, upper back, shoulders, arms, hands and fingers. Lumbar nerve compression often involves the sciatic nerve, producing sciatica in the lower back, buttocks, legs, feet or toes.
Treatment for nerve compression
Conservative treatment usually brings relief for nerve compression symptoms and may include pain medication, physical therapy, exercise and rest. However, surgery might become an option if chronic symptoms persist after several weeks or months of conservative treatment. If you have been recommended for surgery to treat your pain and other symptoms related to a compressed nerve, contact Laser Spine Brevard. We offer minimally invasive decompression and stabilization procedures to treat a wide range of symptoms, all without the highly invasive nature of traditional open spine surgery. Our surgeons have perfected these innovative techniques which have helped more than 75,000 patients find relief to date.
