What are the synptoms of a pinched nerve in the right upper back. Also whete to go chiropractor or doctor.?
Pain, numb, weak. A pinched nerve in the neck (cervical radiculopathy) causes pain, paresthesias, numbness, and/or weakness. The radiation pattern is dependent upon which nerve root is being entrapped. For instance, a C5 radiculopathy can present as neck pain with radiation into the medial scapular border and deltoid. It would rarely go below the elbow. Being a doctor I am a bit biased but would rec a doc.
