Pinched Nerve Overview

Learn about the AccuraScope ProcedurePinched nerve is a general term used to describe a painful condition that occurs when any structure in your body puts abnormal pressure on a nearby nerve, or triggers nerve stretching or narrowing. When pressure affects a nerve root in or near your spinal column, the resulting condition is called a radiculopathy.

In many cases, the sharp pain that you feel in your neck, back or shoulders is an acute pain that will resolve with rest, proper posture, gentle stretches, and pain medication. It is important for every patient to try all conservative measures before exploring any type of spine surgery – even an outpatient procedure like the AccuraScope procedure.
