Nerves travel from the brain and spinal cord to send important messages to all areas of the body. A pinched nerve (a nerve compression) sends the message that the nerve is damaged — and the most often signal of this message is pain. Damage from a pinched nerve can be mild to severe. It can cause temporary or long lasting problems. Any warning signal from a pinched nerve should not be ignored. The earlier treatment for a pinched nerve is given, the more quickly a person will find relief.
