What is the best treatment for pain from a pinched nerve in shoulder and right arm?

What is the best treatment for pain from a pinched  nerve in shoulder and right arm?

Location: First that depends on what nerve in "pinched" and what are your true symptoms. Are you having just pain or are you have problems with muscle control as well. The pinched nerve of your arm is often caused by a problem at the level of your neck and your symptoms just show up in your arm.

Pinched nerve in shoulder,neck and armpit .Had this before,took an MRI picture,no herniated disks!! Can muscles cause this? What is the treatment?

A compressed nerve root gives you a radiculopathy down the arm but thecause of compression may be a herniated disc,a neuroforaminal stenosis or a hypertrophied cervical facet that narrows the neuroforamina, or it can be compressed anywhere else down the path ...Read more

Pain-shoulder blade, neck and top of head on one side. Pinched nerve? Treatment?

disc problem: Depends on duration, but chronic pain in that pattern could be caused by a pinched nerve in the neck. A detailed physical and neuro exam, if neck movement or talking on the phone in that arm aggravates symptoms, it is consistent, an MRI might be useful, if it is affecting performance or function. Otherwise anti inflammatories, rest about the neck with cardio low impact exercise useful. ...Read more

Pretty sure I have pinched nerve on my left shoulder blade. What's the treatment/healin time? No pain, but numbness can I still lift weight?

See a neurologist: Given the numbness, see a neurologist for a full evaluation. If you are found to have a local cervical nerve branch compression, conservative measures include massage, heat therapy, physical therapy, injections, etc. Lifting weights before resolving the issue could make things worse. http://www.webmd.com/pain-management/guide/compressed-nerves ...Read more

Pinched nerve in my shoulder,neck and armpit.The pain goes all the way to my hand and fourth finger.What can cause it and what is the treatment ?

Herniated disk?: Could be a ruptured disk in neck, especially since you've had the same symptoms before, which is typical. Did u get ant treatment(Tx) then? Place to start is w/ fam doc for pain meds & referral for MRI. steroids & PT would be initial Tx, unless weakness is present, in which case more urgent. Surgery may be necessary, but most resolve without. If persists or recurs, surgery more likely. . ...Read more

I have a lot of upper back / lower shoulder pain, what would be a good home remedy?

Home remedies: Stretch, exercise, and increase your activities of daily living. Just being active with household work and chores and around your neighborhood will help bring fresh blood and oxygen to your bone, joints, and tissues. I don't have any magic tea or herb to recommend . Exercise is one of the oldest and best medicine available to us and you don't need to go to the gym for it either. ...Read more
