Treating a Pinched Nerve


Pinched nerves occur when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by tissue, bones, cartilage, or muscles surrounding it. The compression of nerves can be caused by many different factors: injury, arthritis, stress, obesity, diabetes, overuse, excessive bed rest, and much more.

Pinched nerves are fairly common, and although people of any age can experience pinched nerves, those over the age of 50 are most likely to experience it due to arthritis and degeneration of body parts.



Pinched nerves can cause great amounts of pain, tingling, numbness, and overall weakness in the compressed area. They can occur in many places of the body: neck, shoulders, back, chest, arms, wrists, etc.

To help prevent pinched nerves, follow the guidelines below:

  • Maintain proper position and posture
  • Stay active and healthy
  • Participate in strength and flexibility training
  • Do not sit or lay for extended periods of time
  • Limit repetitive movements



Pinched nerves can typically be treated through rest, heat and ice, stretching, and exercises. If the pinched nerves do not ease up, it is best to seek medical attention.

Midwest Pain Solutions specializes in high-intensity laser therapy that stimulates a healing light to the problem area. It is important to give your body a helping hand – otherwise, the issue may worsen and cause dysfunction elsewhere.

Our high-intensity laser therapy uses high-powered lasers at specific wavelengths to have photochemical effects on targeted tissue areas. Due to the specific frequency, the laser penetrates deeply and stimulates increased blood circulation and other functions that can result in pain relief and reduced swelling.
