Can a lower back pinched nerve be corrected with physical therapy.?

PT for LBP. It's not a cure for a pinched nerve, of course, but physical therapy may help your body function with it better. Always a good first step in the management of a pinched nerve, and for lower back pain in general.
Yes. While the back lumbar discs can herniate in different ways the nucleous pulposis inside the disc may leak out. Depending on how it breaks the nearby spinal nerves are irritated and cause great pain. Time, rest, physical therapy, NSAIDS, injections usually help. Surgery at last resort.

I have a pinched nerve in my lower back can this be taken care of in physical therapy?

Depends. The determination of whether a compromised nerve can be treated with PT or other intervention (surgery) depends on the degree and type of issue causing symptoms. It seems that the best thing you can do is to speak with your physician to go over your test results in detail in order to make an educated decision. Read more...

3 yrs ago diagnosed with pinch nerve, did physical therapy & chiro. Now again for ten months, severe pinching/pain in neck, shoulder, elbow, lwr back.

NSAIDs/Injections. I am assuming you had an appropriate workup that confirmed a pinched nerve. If not see a medical provider for testing. Other treatment options include anti-inflammatories, repeat PT, cortisone injections if appropriate. Muscle relaxers and analgesics could be helpful. Speak with your medical provider. Good luck.

Consider more . The conservative options for a cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve in neck) usually include rest, time, meds, and/or non invasive things like therapy or chiropractic. If that fails and it is bad enough, MRI and either epidural steroid injections or surgery is the more aggressive way to handle it. It is usually quite fixable. Don't hesitate to see a specialist.
