Core strengthening


Core exercises for your abdominal, oblique, and back muscles can help strengthen and support the soft tissue envelope around your spine. Although this doesn't necessarily change the condition of a pinched nerve, maintaining a neutral position can help minimize the risk of further injury to your nerve. Once the nerve pain resolves, yoga, Pilates, and general conditioning/stretching can also help.

Most just get better with time. So anyone can claim a 90% success rate with their care as this is the natural history but lifestyle changes including exercise, smoking cessation and weight control are important especially in minimizing recurrences. Sometimes , physical therapy, activity modifications, medication and epidural steroid injections can be of benefit.

Generic answer


Variety of different approaches based on which nerve, and where. Surgery might be an answer for ruptured disc, pinching nerve in neck or back. Carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, nerves decompressed at wrist and elbow. Sometimes local steroid injections, even epidural steroids may stabilize the compression. Never hurts to supplement with one B-100 complex daily, and meds useful for symptoms.

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.
