Trapped Nerve Treatment

Trapped Nerve Treatment

A pinched nerve occurs when a nerve is damaged in some way and unable to fully send its signals. It is caused when a nerve gets compressed, which can be due to a herniated disc, arthritis, or bone spurs.

Certain exercises relieve the pressure on the pinched nerve, helping to reduce pain. As time goes on, your physical therapist may give you additional exercises that can be done on your own. Don’t do any of the exercises alone unless told to do so.

 The pain associated with a trapped nerve can be high, but most cases resolve with non-operative physiotherapy treatment in a few weeks.

The physiotherapy treatment of a Trapped nerve is fairly straightforward. The most important thing is to identify the cause of the problem. This can usually be done with clinical tests without the need for any scans.

Treatment will usually consist of manual therapy techniques to reduce specific areas of tightness and spasm. Importantly you will be shown specific exercises that can help ensure normal movement and flexibility of the nerve is restored.

An initial assessment and treatment is 1 hr. Any further sessions are usually 30 minutes. Most patients need only 4-6 sessions over a few weeks to resolve the problem. (However we can be more specific after you have been assessed)

The goal of physiotherapy is to reduce your pain and improve your movement. We use techniques that most patients find very comfortable and pain relieving.
