What is a pinched nerve in the lower back? The most detailed answer is in this article. In people older than 40 years, various spinal diseases can often appear, including pinching of the nerve in the lower back. This unpleasant symptom accompanies the appearance of a strong, sharp and sharp pain in the lumbosacral region, similar to electric shock (backache). In the first 1-2 seconds of the attack, the patient may feel that he has a muscle break.

When infringing a person can not straighten because of the compression of the vertebrae of the nerve roots in the spinal cord.

Pinching the nerve in the lower back can lead to patient disability

If time does not begin treatment of pinching, the nervous tissue in the back will begin to die due to problems with metabolism. In 90% of all cases, disability and the need for surgery may occur.

The purpose of the article is to familiarize with the signs, the causes of the pinching of the nerve root in the lower back. You will find all the detailed information on how to conduct first aid in case of pinching, how to identify this disease, when and which doctor to turn to, how to prevent the recurrence of the attack.


“A sore back and joints can be treated as easily as getting rid of a cold! Any doctor will offer you a whole range of treatments, from ineffective to radical ones: you can regularly undergo therapy with pills, massage and physiotherapy, returning every six months, you can trust in folk remedies and believe in a miracle ...

But perhaps it is more correct to treat not the symptoms, but the REASON?

I will be honest with you - I will tell you how to quickly and forever get rid of pain in the back and joints in just a few weeks! ”

What is a pinched nerve

How is the pinched nerve? The nerve root in the spinal cord is compressed by two adjacent vertebrae due to the appearance of muscle and tendon spasms, tumors, hernias and other causes. As a result, shooting pains appear in the lower back, which is why a person cannot move normally.

Jamming of the nerve roots except for sharp pain is often accompanied by numbness of certain muscles of the back.

Another pinch of the nerve in the lumbar region is called radicular syndrome, sciatica or lumbar sciatica, depending on the location of the pain syndrome. In general, there are several types of pinching, but the most common is pinching in the neck and lower back.

What does radicular syndrome look like?

Why pinches the nerve in the lower back: the main reasons

The most popular causes of nerve root infringement in the lumbar spine:

  1. Intervertebral hernia and protrusion. In 90% of all clinical cases, this complication of osteochondrosis provokes a painful attack. At risk - adults under 50 years. With a hernia, a protrusion of the pulpal nucleus occurs, which leads to squeezing of the nerve roots.
  2. Osteochondrosis. In this disease, the height of the intervertebral disc decreases, and during any awkward movement, a lumbar nerve can become pinched.
  3. Spondylosis In this dystrophic disease, osteophytes appear - these are bone growths on the vertebrae, compressing the nerve endings.
    What do osteophytes look like

Additional diseases that cause pinching:

  1. Foraminal stenosis or narrowing of the spinal canal. Mostly appears in the elderly.
  2. Severe muscle spasm.
  3. Cancers in the spine. Over time, it can become very large, which will lead to squeezing of the nerves.
  4. Severe infectious diseases of the internal organs of the pelvis and abdomen.
  5. Rachiocampsis.
  6. Deformation of intervertebral joints and cartilage tissue.
  7. Worsening of the muscular frame of the back.
  8. Pinching of the sciatic nerve. This is the most vulnerable nerve in the spine, going from the lumbosacral to the feet. With its deformation, paralysis of the legs may develop.
    Pinching the sciatic nerve can lead to disability
  9. Hormonal disbalance.

Risk factors

In addition to disease, there are many risk factors that can cause severe pain and pinching:

  1. Severe physical exertion immediately after a calm state, especially improper weight lifting.
  2. Heavy athletic training for athletes. Basically, the nerve infringement occurs during the extension of the back.
  3. Pregnancy period, especially the 4th trimester. The center of gravity in a pregnant woman shifts forward, causing an increased load on the lower back.
  4. Spinal cord injuries leading to vertebral fracture, tendon tears with the formation of large internal hematomas.
  5. High body weight. The greater the weight, the greater the load on the lumbar spine.
  6. Stress and nervous strain. In psychosomatics, doctors often say that if you are very nervous, you can pinch a nerve in the spine.
    Stress often leads to pain in the back and lower back.
  7. Violations of sleep, lack of balanced nutrition.
  8. Lack of vitamins and microelements.
  9. Elderly age. Over the years, the bone tissue becomes more fragile and, with a light load, squeezing of the adjacent vertebrae can occur, causing pinching.
  10. Long stay in a fixed position, for example, sitting work.
  11. Hypothermia of the back and waist.
  12. Inconvenient bed.

Often, patients can write off the pinching to the banal fatigue of the body, but, of course, it is not. In any case, requires accurate diagnosis and the appointment of the correct treatment. Pinched nerve in most cases - the consequences of various diseases.


“If you do not have the opportunity to get an appointment with a GOOD doctor: an orthopedic surgeon or a rheumatologist, then we advise you to IMMEDIATELY listen to the recommendations of Dr. Yoshinori Osumi.

And you will be able to cure your aching back and joints by 100% - and this in a matter of days. ”


Depending on the location and symptoms of a pinched nerve, it is called:

  1. Sciatica - pain appears in the sacral area, moving in the buttocks and the back of the legs.
  2. Lumboischialgia - painful sensation appears in the lower back and moves to the back of the leg from the side of infringement.
  3. Lumbodynia - pain in the back and lower back.
  4. Cervicalgia - pain in the neck and arm.

An important point! With certain diseases in a patient, the following specific symptoms appear:

Sciatica (compression of the sciatic nerve):

  • sharp pain and burning of the back, similar to injections,
  • the pain gives up to the foot,
  • when standing, the patient has a strong shooting pain.

Intervertebral hernia: severe intense pain.

Radiculitis: the appearance of inflammation in the area of ​​pinching.

With radiculitis, pinching of the nerve is accompanied by inflammation.

Tumor: chronic pulling back pain.

Depending on the type of pinched nerve:

  • Vegetative nerve: violation of the internal organs (stomach, bladder, genitals).
  • Sensory nerve: severe pain over time.
  • Motor nerve: numbness in lower back and legs, muscle weakness in lower limbs.

It is important to distinguish between compression of the sensory, motor and autonomic nerves. If a sensory nerve is affected, the patient urgently goes to the doctor to eliminate the unbearable pain. And when a vegetative and motor nerve is clamped, a person does not always seek the help of a specialist in time, which leads to the development of complications.

The most important symptom of a pinched nerve in the lumbosacral spine is a aching back pain that spreads to one of the legs. As a rule, pain in the leg is more acute than in the lumbar region. The nature of the pain when the nerve is pinched is as if it were “shocked”, and the patient can accurately determine the affected place. After some time, there is a strong muscle spasm in the pain area.

With pinched nerve in the first seconds there is a sharp pain.

Additional symptoms accompanying nerve root injury:

  1. Numbness or tingling in the legs.
  2. Weakening of the leg muscles to the tips of the fingers.
  3. Man can not fully straighten.
  4. The pain sensation is localized under the knees, on the back of the thigh and lower leg, and can give up to the groin.
  5. The pain becomes stronger when sneezing, coughing, loud talking, sitting or standing.
  6. Pain symptom appears suddenly, for example, when straightening the back, lifting heavy things, a sharp turn in the body.
  7. The patient cannot move normally: stiffness and tension in the lower back appear, lameness appears on the side where the nerve is pinched.
    Pinching in the lower back severely limits patient mobility.
  8. In the area of ​​the back where the nerve is pinched, there is redness and swelling, as well as muscle cramps.
  9. At night and during hypothermia, the pain increases. And with numbness - dulled.
  10. Pinched nerve for a long time can cause a malfunction of the internal organs of the pelvis and abdominal cavity:
  11. Women have problems with libido - reduced sexual desire.
  12. In men - the development of impotence.
  13. Constipation, diarrhea,
  14. Intestinal paralysis with obstruction and decreased motility,
  15. Violation of urination and bowel movements - urinary incontinence, feces or no desire to empty the bladder and intestines.

The main difference between pinching and ordinary muscle spasm is a clear sensation of pain. And with spasms, this symptom will be fuzzy and short-lived.

In children and adolescents

In young patients, pinching the nerve is a very rare occurrence. In the main cases, this symptom can trigger active growth during adolescence. Symptoms are the same as in adult patients. Additional risk factors for infringement:

  • high physical activity
  • hypothermia
  • severe injury or other back injury,
  • genetic predisposition to spinal diseases or congenital abnormalities.

During pregnancy

Infringement of the nerve root in the loins may appear in 3-4 trimester. In rare cases, this phenomenon can occur in the first trimester, but this is due to the specific position of the uterus. After a certain period of time, the uterus changes its position, and the pain completely disappears.

During pregnancy, there is a tremendous load on the lumbar region

Pinched nerve in the lower back is a natural manifestation of pregnancy due to fetal pressure on the neural tube and the lumbar spine. In the main cases, after the birth of the child, the pain syndrome goes away by itself.

During the course of pregnancy, the main symptoms of a pinched nerve are:

  • numbness of toes. Sometimes this is the only symptom that indicates a pinch,
  • strong limitation of mobility: a woman cannot bend forward and sides, move her legs, roll over from side to side,
  • numbness of the entire leg in the side of nerve damage,
  • shooting and throbbing pain in different parts of the lower back and lower limbs.

If the pain gives in the groin

The main causes of this symptom are:

  • arthrosis of the hip joint. Pain symptom can give both the left and right leg. Mostly this disease affects women over 40,
  • spinal canal stenosis. The disease is dangerous because it can lead to disability,
  • aseptic necrosis of the femoral head. Accompanied by symptoms such as lameness, chronic hip pain, and muscle atrophy. The disease is quite common, especially in men after injuries or surgery,
    Necrosis of the femoral head is a frequent occurrence in which the pain gives in the groin
  • trochanteritis or inflammation of the femoral tendons. Pain syndrome appears in the upper leg and moves down to the lower leg. Symptoms: high body temperature, swelling and redness in the inflamed area,
  • pear-shaped muscle syndrome. With this disease, pain of a chronic nature appears, which gives to the knee, thigh, buttocks and groin,
  • rheumatic polymyalgia. This is a rare disease in which there is a sharp pain in the lower back, as well as all the muscles of the body ache,
  • urine accumulation in the kidneys. The pain gives in the groin in the morning or at night due to the fact that the urine in the kidneys puts pressure on the ureter. Accompanied by weakness, nausea and vomiting.
  • intestinal inflammation. Additional symptoms: diarrhea, bloating, high body temperature, vomiting,
  • prostatitis,
  • pancreatitis.

“My name is Olga, I am 38 years old. Very bad back in the back. I came to the hospital - they did an MRI, they said: “You have hernia and osteochondrosis of 4 degrees. Get ready for operations". I almost fainted there! Horrible! What operation, I am only 38? It turns out that at this age osteochondrosis 4 degrees can be earned.

But it all started with the usual back painwhich then became chronic, aching, then a lumbar hernia formed! She interfered with sleep and walk. I refused the operation because I was afraid of anesthesia: suddenly I would fall asleep and I would not wake up again. I also have heart problems. As a result, they assigned me a bunch of useless medications, and when I returned, the doctors simply shrugged, that they said, you want the operation to be done ...

A couple of months ago, on the Internet, I stumbled upon one article that literally saved me. I regained my health and the pain is gone! I am so grateful for the fate, the occasion that led me to this article! Finally, my spine is healthy, and all thanks to this article! Anyone who has pain in the back - read MANDATORY! Now NO PAIN, sleep normally, go and work in the country. ”

How long does it take to pinch

If you assign the correct course of treatment, the acute pain goes away within 3-7 days. A subacute period can last from 2 weeks to 1 month. It all depends on the conduct of additional treatments - physiotherapy and exercise therapy.

With a mild course of the disease in 90% of clinical cases, the sharp pain passes quickly, the prognosis of treatment is positive. A pinched nerve due to intervertebral hernia is often treated only with surgical treatment.

What kind of doctor to contact if a nerve is pinched in the lower back

When a pathology appears, a person can turn to a general practitioner who will refer the patient to the necessary specialist, or to a neuropathologist (neurologist).

A neurologist may prescribe the correct treatment if a nerve is pinched in the lower back.

When should I seek medical advice urgently?

  1. The presence of elevated body temperature of about 38 ° C for more than two days in a row.
  2. A person first developed severe pain in the leg and back, weakness and numbness in some parts of the body (limbs, back, groin).
  3. Pain sensation has shifted to both legs.
  4. Violations of the process of urination or defecation.
  5. After urination, the person feels incomplete emptying of the bladder.
  6. The pain does not go away for a long time, despite taking painkillers.

If you fail to consult a neurologist in time, serious complications are possible, including the development of paralysis of the legs.


Since pinching of the nerve in the lower back can be confused with radiculitis and other diseases, it is necessary to consult a doctor as soon as possible and undergo diagnostic tests.

Diagnosis always begins with a consultation with a neurologist. The doctor conducts a medical examination for the presence of numbness, weakness, reflex work, estimates the amount of movement. In the future, the doctor may prescribe the following types of diagnosis to the patient:

  1. General analysis of blood and urine.This will reveal an inflammation or infection.
  2. X-ray. This is the most popular type of diagnosis of any diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Allows you to identify osteophytes in the vertebrae, infection. When a nerve is pinched, an x-ray can give little information, but, nevertheless, it is still prescribed.
  3. MRI - magnetic resonance imaging. This is the most detailed type of diagnosis, which results in very detailed pictures of the back. With this method, you can identify all changes in the vertebrae, intervertebral discs, muscles, tissues and nerve endings. It is impossible to perform an MRI in the presence of metal objects on the body and a pacemaker.
    MRI will allow to find out the exact cause of nerve impairment
  4. CT scan - computed tomography. It is performed using a special x-ray and computer. Images are better than with x-rays, but worse than with MRI. Assign, if for some reason it is impossible to carry out an MRI.
  5. EMG - electromyography. In this study, the electrical conductivity of the muscles in a calm and mobile state is checked.

First aid for pinching the nerve in the lower back

What should be done first of all during the infringement of the nerve in the lower back?

  1. Take painkillers, the best analgesics: Pentalgin, Baralgin, Ibuprofen, Analgin, Spazmalgon. Allowed to drink NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug), but only if you previously he was appointed by a neurologist. Effective and inexpensive NSAIDs - Diclofenac, Ortofen, Ketorol, Voltaren. 30 minutes after taking the medication should be a relief.
    When a nerve is pinched, one should lie on a hard surface, feet should be put on an elevation.
  2. After the pain subsides, we follow a special way to get out of bed, otherwise the attack may return. The patient should lie on his side, then get on all fours and rise from the bed, leaning on something.

Even after the pain is completely gone, you need to consult a doctor for an accurate diagnosis of the disease. The attack can come back again at any time, so it is very important to understand which disease causes it in order to carry out the correct treatment.

What to do: treatment of pinching at home

In order to alleviate the condition of the patient with a pinched nerve in the back, you can take a course of treatment at home.

To begin with, provide complete rest to the patient. It is important that there is no load on the lower back.

If the pain is of moderate strength, cold or hot compresses will help. It is recommended to alternate them in order to achieve better results. Compresses are applied for 15 minutes up to 4 times a day. They will help reduce inflammation and reduce pain.

Hot bath

This is a good way to relax tense muscles and improve circulation. Take a hot bath or shower should be no more than 15-20 minutes.

You can take a bath only outside the period of exacerbation.

Correct posture

Watch your posture not only when sitting, but also when walking and doing physical activities. This will help remove excess pressure from the lumbar region.

After the pinching has passed, it is necessary to provide physical activity to the body, otherwise the muscles will become weak and the recovery period will be much longer.

Can I warm the lower back when pinching

It is important to remember that at the beginning of an acute attack it is impossible to warm up the lower back in any way. This is due to the fact that in the affected area there is a strong edema, and an increase by several times increases blood flow. This leads to an increase in puffiness and pressure on the nerve roots.

You can not warm the lower back with an acute attack of pinching

Even if the pain decreases after warming up, this is only a temporary phenomenon. After a few hours, the pain syndrome will return with a vengeance.

How to remove the pain of folk remedies

The most popular and effective folk recipes for pinching a nerve in the lower back:

  1. A rubbing of two tablespoons of crushed bay leaf and a glass of vodka. After 3 days of exposure, this rubbing should be rubbed into the lower back 2-3 times a day.
  2. Well help in the treatment of baths. Take a warm bath for 15 to 20 minutes with the addition of oak bark, horse chestnut and calamus.
  3. Rub the sore back with fir oil or valerian tincture. Then you have to wrap up with a woolen scarf or belt and go to bed.
  4. Ointment from hop cones. They need to be crushed, add 1 tbsp. butter, mix thoroughly. Rub the mixture into the painful area.

Surgical intervention

Surgery for squeezing the nerve roots is rarely prescribed. Nevertheless, we give the main cases when an operation is assigned when a nerve is pinched in the lower back:

  1. Acute pain syndrome in which the patient can not live normally. This pain can not be eliminated with any anesthetic medicines.
  2. The patient has serious complications in the form of severe weakness in the lower extremities, a violation of the process of urination and defecation, as well as impotence.
  3. Occurrence of osteophytes on the vertebrae - bone growths. After these spikes appear, pinching becomes chronic. Patients say so about this infringement: as if my back was sore.
  4. The last stage of the intervertebral hernia, when the nucleus fell into the spinal cord space.

Video - Exercises for pinched nerve in the lower back

Let's sum up. People over 35 have an increased risk of various diseases of the back, including pinching of the lumbar nerves in the spinal cord. And the main reason for the appearance of severe back pain is osteochondrosis and intervertebral hernia.

In general, the vertebrae in the lumbosacral spine accounts for the maximum load. Therefore, it is not surprising that the painful symptoms of pinching the roots often appear in people experiencing pressure on their backs. Of course, pain can be a temporary pill or ointment, but this will not affect the cause of the disease.

Only a timely visit to a doctor, the formulation of a correct diagnosis and the appointment of an effective course of treatment will prevent the occurrence of infringements until their complete disappearance.

Conclusions and conclusions

Unfortunately, most of the "treating" diseases of the back and joints, which are advertised on TV and sold in pharmacies, are solid. divorce.

At first it may seem that the cream and ointment help, but in fact they only temporarily relieve the symptoms of the disease.

In simple words, you buy the usual pain reliever, and the disease continues to evolve by going into more severe stage. Ordinary pain may be a symptom of more serious diseases:

  • muscular dystrophy in the area of ​​the buttocks, thighs and lower legs,
  • pinching of the sciatic nerve,
  • sharp and sharp pain - backfire that leads to chronic radiculitis,
  • horsetail syndrome, which leads to paralysis of the legs,
  • impotence and sterility.

How to be? - you ask.We studied a huge amount of materials and most importantly checked in practice the majority of drugs for the treatment of diseases of the spine and joints. So, it turned out that the only new remedy which does not remove the symptoms, but really treats - this medicine, which is not sold in pharmacies and is not advertised on TV! So that you do not think that you are being sucked in by the next “miracle remedy”, we will not tell you what an effective drug is. If interested, you can read all the information about it yourself.

From different pains, of course, their special medicines exist. Now, if the joints hurt, the back, neck, and head are always better to take Nimesulide preparations. And they do not have a small range of prices, and all are approximately the same. I, at least, did not feel the difference. If it is needed inexpensively and effectively, then this is “Nimesan” - here it helps a lot (although there are side effects - pain in the stomach). Who has “favorite medicines”?

Patches are not chemicals, which is why they are extremely effective in preventive actions. I prefer medical patches, rather than chemistry, which treats one - and the other cripples.

Back pain besides self-treatment needs to be diagnosed. The reasons for its occurrence are many. You should not be afraid of going to the doctor, because today you can hear several alternative opinions without any problems (if you are suddenly a suspicious person or if the doctor’s opinion scared / alarmed you). X-ray, MRI, CT, densitometry (with suspected osteoporosis) - today it is simple and affordable research, which in most cases will answer the questions of patients.
But whatever is written in the conclusion of any study, the final diagnosis will be established by a specialist (neurologist, orthopedic trauma specialist, neurosurgeon, etc.). And for this, in addition to research, one must look at the patient himself. It is a clinical examination coupled with instrumental examinations that will allow you to fully understand the situation and the problem of the patient. And only after that the doctor can confidently make his recommendations regarding treatment.

And then the employee advised to use ZB PAIN RELIEF, and I naturally understood how the team turns out to be a cucumber by the end of the day.

Daria Quish, 3 days ago

The composition of the patch is natural - it pleases, I have never heard that ZB PAIN RELIEF did not help someone, I know it myself, because I saved my husband. Life completely turned upside down when we realized that he would have to pay it back from work, he just could not walk, and we have three children. It’s not for nothing that I don’t trust the medical workers, judging by the answers, nobody in the hospital recommended anything good to anyone.

When the back hurts, it would be nice to have NSAIDs. drink away My doctor advised Neurodiclovitis to me, it helps well and a huge plus of this drug does not harm the stomach. I drank a couple of weeks and the pain went away. Then I also saw Neiromultivit, there are vitamins in the composition, they reinforce the effect of treatment. Now I don’t complain anymore about back pain, it’s good that I didn’t wait for it to pass by itself. Only I warn you right away - over time, when I take any NSAIDs, a stomach ulcer can develop, which is what happened to me. Be careful!

For arthrosis, I was prescribed to prick Hondrogard for a whole month. It cost me a pleasure 9700 rubles! And what do you think? Right! 2 months everything seemed to be good, and then it started anew ... The doctor said, "Well, repeat the course, it helps the same." Yes nifiga itself helps! Pokols month and only 2 months of the effect and so the rest of his life poke chtoli? Nafig, I decided! By some miracle I found orthopedic patches, about which you told, I don’t even remember how. The course was treated, which for a minute, cost less than the rate of Chondrogard almost 3-4 times! And now the third year has gone, but not even memories of osteoarthritis remain. So, guys, make conclusions, treat correctly and you will be happy.

Sitting work also ruins the body. It seems not strained, worked in the office, and here you are. My knees hurt terribly, as if there is no blood flowing there. I hope these patches will help me. I keep the third day. In a state of rest and when walking the pain is no longer there, which is good. But if you do a deep squat, then there are some painful sensations. Hope to pass soon.

So, as promised, I want to share my impressions. Patches delivered quickly. They look qualitative, made of high-quality breathable material (i.e., the skin under the plaster does not sweat), somewhat reminiscent of pepper plasters. But only in appearance. According to the effects, of course, like heaven and earth. The pain is really removed in a few minutes. I was even surprised. And both were stuck with his wife, and both helped. In general, the impressions are very good. I upload photos of my savior:

There is also an experience of using “ZB PAIN RELIEF” patches and also a positive one. Pleasantly surprised. Moreover, noticeable relief was noticed after use, the aching pain that accompanied me 90% of my waking time began to subside, and by the evening I passed completely without pills. In total, I used adhesives for 2 weeks, during which time the pain was completely gone. Feeling great.

Vladimir Mulin, Today

Plasters are just super! Helped get rid of osteochondrosis and a hernia that started in 7 weeks. I tried it on the advice of my doctor and can not get enough of it. And then, too, it was even hung up, the whole life collapsed because of a sore back. Not that I could not work, I went barely.

Victor Klimov, Today

I will also insert my five kopecks =) In the past I was a professional athlete, so injuries were often. Usually these were some minor sprains or strains, but a few years ago I had a very bad knee injury. For some time I even had to walk with a crutch. No treatment practically helped, only temporarily relieved the pain, which then returned again. And during physical exertion, the pain became simply intolerable, the knee swelled up and it was painful even to walk. As a result, I had to quit sport. To relieve pain, he took the pain medication several times a day. Payne Relief bought orthopedic patches on the advice of his wife, who found information about him at a medical forum. After a couple of days of regular use, the pain became noticeably less. I could already walk calmly. And a week later, I completely forgot about pain pills. My wife and I started repairing the house, and so far my knee did not bother me even once, even during physical exertion. In the future, I plan to slowly return to the sport, but, of course, I will be more careful with the loads. I still sometimes put a plaster on my knee, but this is purely for preventive purposes. Ordered a couple more, so that was always on hand if necessary. Ordered here (link)

Maria A., Today

Chinese orthopedic patches are really something! When I ordered, I did not even think that it would be so. Pain relieve very quickly and again you feel like a man. When I ordered, I knew that they would help because I was recommended by my close friend, but I didn’t think so. Now I am going through a full course, I hope that it will be possible to completely get rid of pain in the future. And there is confidence that this will be so!

Marina Eliseeva, Today

A friend uses these patches. We work together. I have no problems with this, but once I blew through the neck, so that after dinner I could not even turn my head. A colleague literally forcibly glued me a piece of plaster (which was cut off with scissors), an hour later I completely forgot that my neck hurt. I like it.

Catherine Vakulina, Today

The patch really helps. The result simply exceeded my expectations. All arthritis on the fingers disappeared in 14 days! I ordered a few more packs to my friends.

Yes. I myself bought, focusing only on the reviews. I liked the patch very much. Quality, factory !! Very well kept on the elbow joint (our domestic all fell off). After an hour of exposure - the pain went away, which really surprised me. Did not expect. After practicing yoga, the joint was a little sick, but it was possible to practice without pain! The composition is written in Russian, very convenient. It smells like herbs. RECOMMEND. (link)

First Aid

Sharply arisen pain as a result of pinching the nerve must be stopped quickly. Often to reach the clinic or wait for the arrival of a doctor is not possible. In this case, the patient must be laid on a hard, preferably warm surface, soothe him, giving a tincture of valerian, motherwort, decoction of mint. Ibuprofen or another nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug will help relieve pain. Smear the place with ointment or gel like Fenistil. You can make a cold and warm compress.

When breathing is difficult, you need to release the chest, open the window for access of fresh air.

The doctor must necessarily examine the patient and prescribe therapy! In especially severe cases, hospitalization is recommended.

Medicinal methods

The tactics of treating a pinched nerve depends on the established diagnosis. Usually, treatment is carried out in two parallel ways: measures are taken to relieve pain and therapy is given for the disease that caused the pinch.

Usually the doctor prescribes the following types of drugs:

  1. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory tablets to relieve inflammation, swelling, reduce pain. These include Ibuprofen, Aspirin.
  2. Non-hormonal ointments with anti-inflammatory, analgesic effect are applied to the sore spot - Voltaren, Karmolis, Finalgon, Betalgon, Viparin. The important thing is that any of these remedies relieves spasm and promotes muscle relaxation.
  3. A necessary element of treatment is the reception of a complex of vitamins of group B, for example, Trigamma. Such complexes reduce inflammation, pain, improve metabolism in the nervous tissue, contribute to the restoration and synthesis of the sheath of nerve fibers. Introduced intramuscularly.

If the usual methods do not help to stop the pain, spend Novocain blockade. Injections are made at the site of pain concentration.

Exercise therapy and exercise

Sometimes even in the acute phase it is recommended to do simple gymnastics. So, the patient, lying on his back, moves his toes, strains his feet, pulls them towards himself.

The main complex is used after the removal of symptoms, is selected strictly individually. First performed with a doctor so that he can correct the correctness of the exercises.

The key to doing gymnastics is regularity. Exercises should be done smoothly, slowly, avoiding sudden movements.

After the symptoms disappear, you can start swimming. It is recommended to swim 3 times a week for 40 minutes. Classes in the pool reduce the load on the spine, lead to the strengthening of the muscular system of the entire back, and avoid muscle atrophy of the affected areas.

Other methods of non-drug exposure

To maintain the back in the correct position and reduce the impact on the lumbar section, special corsets are used.

Effective in the treatment of pinching of the nerve in the back is acupuncture. The principle of this method is similar to acupressure. Sometimes prescribed hirudotherapy (treatment with leeches).

Folk methods

To relieve symptoms, traditional medicine is used. They can not be the main method of treatment. Apply them after consultation with a doctor.

Compresses are applied to painful areas:

  • So, you can mix 15 ml of turpentine with egg white, shake, soak a piece of cloth. Apply the compress on the sore spot, wrap it with a woolen scarf. Remove after the occurrence of pain, cleanse the skin and repeat the procedure after 6 hours. Apply compresses until the pain disappears.
  • For the preparation of another compress take 200 g of grated horseradish and the same radish, add kerosene, a tablespoon of salt and vinegar. Insist the mixture for 10 days, after this period apply a compress for 1 hour.

Muscle relaxation and spasms help bath. For their preparation using various herbal teas, extracts of calamus roots, oak.

Rubbing the affected area with a tincture of bay leaves will help improve blood circulation. To prepare take 2 tablespoons of crushed bay leaves, insist them for 2-3 days for 200 ml of vodka.

Ingestion of fresh celery juice before eating will restore the nervous system. Pressed raw materials can be used for a compress.
