Nerves can be pinched by many things, including disc fragments, bone spurs and even tumors. ...Read more

I would recommend it to be sure as there are other potential causes of foot drop. ...Read more

I am a dancer, and I have a pinched nerve directly behind my right thigh from doing an improper heel stretch. How do I fix it so i can move on?

NEED DIAGNOSIS: Not clear if you possess a chronic hamstring strain/sprain or a true "pinched nerve" over the thigh, which might be a peripheral sciatica or even a pyriformis syndrome. Proximal nerve compression at lumbar or buttock levels may well be referred to post. Thigh, and sacro-iliac dysfnctn may also be hard to pin down. Maybe get consultation with osteopath and consider some testing. ...Read more

Thigh pain: There are many reasons for this pain, but nsaids and stretching with positional changes multiple times per day is probably best for now. Try to continue with activities as usual, except for strenuous lifting and lost of bending, to prevent things from getting worse. Wait for about a week before seeking help if you can tolerate it... Good luck! ...Read more
