Nerve compression is most common in the L4-L5 and L5-S1 of the back. The separation of the soft tissues in the spine can contribute to cause this condition. Once facet joints expand the inward bending of the joints in the spine can increase irritation. You should consult your physician about different treatment options such as chiropractic care.
Some symptoms that you may have a nerve compression are:
- Pins and needles
- Fragility when exerting force with foot
- Resistance when elevating toes
Compression of the nerves of the neck shows other symptoms. People often feel headaches and tingling in areas above the chest when the nerves are being affected. You may feel also difficulty if you try to move your shoulder or any part of the arm because the neck pain can affect the shoulder and even fingers.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition due to compression of the median nerve. Activities such as paddling can cause it. Here are some of the symptoms you need to pay attention to:
- Inability to extend arm
- Difficulty shifting wrist and fingers
- Loose hand clutch
Nerve compression or vascular lesion can lead to pain throughout the foot, like the one caused by Tarsal tunnel syndrome. People with this condition experience a numbing and a burning sensation. Individuals with flat feet and high arches are more likely to get compression in the foot , so they have to be careful when they work out . Tight shoes can also cause compression of the feet nerves.
The femoral nerve is one of the biggest nerves inside the leg. It controls the muscles that allow movement in the leg and waist. The compression of this nerve can affect the manner in which one walks or even cause diabetes.
Which tests should I take to treat my nerve compression?
An electromyogram (also known as an EMG) measures the electrical impulses at rest and during contraction. With this exam, the doctors at CEDA health center can detect any problem in different parts of the body that have nerves, such as spinal cord, brain, or muscles. They can also see if the nervous system is injured or not. If you live in or near any of the following locations then please schedule an appointment with us:
