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.
