Physical therapy: The best initial treatments for disc problems that can lead to pinched nerves is to do physical therapy and use nsaids. If this fails, then be sure to get an MRI of the area involved and ask for a neurosurgical referral in your area.

What's are the best tests to diagnose a pinched nerve?

The senses : Most of them time your doctor can diagnose a pinched nerve by letting you tell your story in your own words and by examining you. Depending on the type of pinched nerve you have, an imaging study, preferably mri, and possibly nerve studies may be needed to confirm the diagnosis and to help tailor the most effective treatment plan for you.
