Herniated disc: There are different causes of a "pinched" nerve. The most common and most readily treated is a herniated disc (or hnp-herniated nucleus pulposis).

Can cervical spine root damage cause permanent paralysis in your entire body? From c1-c8? Can a pinched nerve in this area cause full body paralysis?
Not really.: Spinal CORD runs from brain down spine encased in column of vertebral bones. Spinal NERVE exits between bones providing movement and sensation to a very specific body area. Damage to NERVE can produce loss of function and sensation only in a local area. Damage to CORD can produce loss of function and sensation below the level of the injury. Injury above C4 paralyses respiration - often fatal ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
