Natural Treatment of Pinched Nerve with Homeopathy

A pinched nerve refers to nerve compression that occurs as a result of excessive pressure on a nerve. The points where nerves have to pass through narrow spaces in the body are the places where they tend to get pinched from. The pressure on the nerves can arise from muscles, tendons, bones, cartilage and that surrounds the nerve.

Pinched Nerve Homeopathic Treatment

A pinched nerve can cause pain and other complications.

A nerve may get pinched due to a variety of reasons like an injury to the nerve, disc herniation, bone spurs, degenerative disc diseases, and spinal arthritis. Homeopathic treatment of a pinched nerve helps alleviate symptoms like numbness, pain, and tingling sensations. Rhus Tox, Colocynthis, and Magnesia Phosphorica are the top homeopathic remedies for pinched nerves.

Homeopathic Treatment of Pinched Nerves

Homeopathy carries a good scope of treatment for cases of pinched nerves. A pinched nerve anywhere in the body can be effectively treated with homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic remedies are selected individually to treat the condition by assessing factors like the location of the pinched nerve, the associated symptoms and the modalities present in the given case. There are different symptoms presented for the use of each of these homeopathic medicines. Prepared from natural substances, these homeopathic medicines cause no side effects.

Causes of Pinched Nerve

Many factors predispose a person towards developing a pinched nerve. Some of these include age-related wear and tear, heavy weight-lifting, overstraining of the back, obesity, pregnancy, sports activities, and excessive stress/strain from repetitive work. Apart from these, thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes mellitus are some other conditions that can predispose a person to develop pinched nerve.

Symptoms of Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve can give rise to symptoms varying from mild to severe that can develop in any part of the body. The exact degree and location of symptoms depend on the particular nerve that has been compressed. In general, the symptoms of a pinched nerve include pain, burning sensation, tingling, numbness, and a pins-and-needles sensation in the area supplied by the nerve which has been pinched. Decreased sensation and muscle weakness are also noted in some cases. The major sites where pinched nerve is seen most commonly include cervical spine (neck), lumbosacral spine (lower back), and carpal tunnel in the wrist. In case of a pinched nerve in the cervical spine (neck) the symptoms include pain, numbness or tingling in cervical back. These symptoms can be seen radiating to shoulder, and the upper limb. In case of a pinched nerve in lower back, the primary symptom arising is sciatica (lower back pain radiating down the lower limb), numbness, tingling in the lower back or lower limb or isolated pain in the lower back.
In the case of carpal tunnel syndrome, the symptoms appear due to pinching of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel present in the wrist. These include wrist pain, tingling/ numbness of fingers of the hand (thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger) and weakness in the hand.

    Hello Dr Sharma

    I am 54 yrs old female with underlying multiple health issues lately dealing with MSK issues and pain

    I would really appreciate a conversation with you to discuss my current symptoms of spine disease and questionable arthritis that has not been diagnosed accurately by the allopathic doctors.

    I have a cervical spine nerve impingement between C5-7, leading up to predominantly right-sided radicular symptoms. I am dealing with acute flare up presently, along with low back nerve compression at the level of L5-S1.

    I think my neck problem started after neck surgery for thyroid cancer in 2009

    I also have bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome that seems to be worsening however EMG studies collectively mild

    I have inflammatory osteo-arthritis in hands wrists versus some form of autoimmune disease versus rheumatoid
    I also have celiac disease that was diagnosed in 2019 I have been gluten-free since

    I was treated for thyroid cancer in 2009
    At that time Hashimoto’s thyroiditis was diagnosed on the biopsy as well
    I deal with hypertension and all of these conditions have given me some depression and anxiety but I manage this with deep breathing exercises and meditation

    Is Hirayama disease medicine available in homeopathy treatment. Please help me 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  10. Dr Sharma – This is with reference to my son aged 14 years. He has pain and sensitivity from back to both legs and one hand. Only his right hand is not effected. There’s no pain on the frontal chest or abdomen. He is getting this pain from the past 10-12 days. Even in sleep he is mostly in a still position and he keeps complains of pain and doesn’t have sound sleep. He is quite aggressive in nature and is restless and very angry. He gets irritated even in slightest of things.
    Having gone to Neurosurgeon and Physicist, they ruled that it’s a psychiatric issue rather than physical issue and recommended for sessions.
    Please advise homeo medicines for the same. We are unable to see his pain

  14. Evelyn Macdonald says:

    Dear Dr. Sharma, I get muscle knots in my shoulders and have some kind of pinched nerve. My lower neck feels compressed sometimes. I am getting tingling down my right arm to my hand, like its going to sleep, with pins and needles. Wakes me in the night sometimes.
    Right now I have to sleep nearly upright in a recliner because of scar tissue in my nasal passages. I think this position is causing a lot of the problem. Use an airplane curved neck pillow to keep my head and neck from flopping around.
    I overused my right arm about a year ago and must have hurt the muscles. I am 73 and found out that muscles do not heal as quickly. I take arnica when it is bad and rub on various natural remedies. Like arnica gel, Revive sore muscle and White Willow gel. What should I take for the long term to help heal my muscle.
    Also have had a weakness in my upper mid back – very sore spot where the spine tends to slightly bulge out and sometimes go slightly to the side. Chiropractic helps somewhat temporiarily. When that is out it seems to affect my neck and shoulder area. all suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

  15. Mona Kidd says:

    My son, Dylan, has a pinched nerve in his neck and has been suffering for about two weeks. He went to a chiropractor 2 days ago with only very temporary relief. He’s going back tomorrow. He had an x-ray and the orthopedist said he saw some deterioration in his neck bones . As a result he’s having an MRI on 3/11 and on 3/15 he will consult with the doctor as a result of the MRI.

    In the meantime he is suffering in his neck and his arm, endlessly. I’ve tried everything in ways of ointments and stick-ones. Dylan has done some some arm stretches, recommended by the chiropractor. Is there anything that you can recommend to diminish his pain!
