Pinched Nerve In Neck
We move this part of our body around quite a lot and in a variety of directions, meaning that if we 'jar' it by moving awkwardly or too fast then we could easily trap a nerve there are the same time. For someone with a pinched nerve in the neck, symptoms can be wide ranging, from pain to a loss of sensation. The pain that people often comment on is caused by the compression of the nerve itself. The pressure that it is under sends a message to the brain that says 'ouch' and we feel that unpleasant symptom. Often with physiotherapy the nerve can become less compressed, thus easing the pain, but until then a patient may need to take painkillers to numb the pain messages sent from the nerve directly to the brain.
