Pinched Nerve Recovery Doesn’t Have to Be a Pain in the Neck
If you’ve ever experienced a pinched nerve, you know how “unnerving” it can be. The fact is pinched nerves, also known as radiculopathy, are very common and can happen to anyone at any age. So, if you haven’t dealt with an episode before, more than likely you will in the future. But, the good news is that pinched nerve recovery doesn’t have to be a pain in the neck.
Let’s take a look at some common recovery treatments for radiculopathy and precautionary steps to help prevent it from happening again.
Recovering from a Pinched Nerve at Home
You might be wondering what brought on your pinched nerve discomfort. Many reasons may be to blame. Two of the most common culprits are from your body being in one position for too long, such as sleeping in an awkward position or because of repetitive motions, such as your wrist from typing.
Think about the last time you woke up with a nagging soreness in your neck that lasted for a few days before progressing to shooting pain. This could have been from a pinched nerve.
So, what can you do to help the recovery process?
At home, you can do a few things to help relieve discomfort and prevent a pinched nerve from occurring again such as:
- Paying attention to your posture
- Ensuring your workstation is ergonomically correct
- Resting the affected area
- Sleeping enough to allow your body to heal
- Stretching lightly per your Physical Therapist’s guidelines
- Alternating ice and heat treatment
- Exercising daily with low-impact movements
