I have a pinched nerve - how do I stop the pain from it?
A lot depends on the location of the pinched nerve. The most frequent recommendation is to rest the affected area and stop any activities that aggravate it. Depending on the location, you may need a splint or brace to immobilize the area. Sometimes physical therapy can help. Other treatments include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications and/or corticosteroid injections. If it doesn't improve after several weeks of conservative treatment, surgery may be a possibility.
