Trapped Nerves

Nerves don’t really get trapped, but they can be irritated, inflamed and compressed by other tissues such as bulging discs and tight muscles.

Nerve pain usually radiates away from the underlying cause and may cause pins and needles or numbness.

Pain in the hand and arm can be caused by problems with nerves. The irritation can be in the neck, shoulder, arm or hand. Obviously, it’s very important to find which.

Nerve pain down the back of your leg is called sciatica. (link to sciatica page).
