What happens with a pinched nerve in the shoulder?

A pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. This pressure disrupts the nerve’s function, causing pain, tingling, numbness or weakness.

The following measures may help you prevent a pinched nerve:

  •         Maintain good positioning — don’t cross your legs or lie in any one position for a long time.
  •         Incorporate strength and flexibility exercises into your regular exercise program.
  •         Limit repetitive activities and take frequent breaks when engaging in these activities.
  •         Maintain a healthy weight.

Wishing you a great health!
