Are you experiencing burning, tingling, or numbness in your back? These sensations are common signs of a pinched nerve, a medical condition that occurs when too much pressure is applied to cartilage, tendons, muscles, or bones along the spinal cord. This pressure interrupts proper functioning of the nerve, ultimately resulting in sensations of tingling, burning, numbness, or weakness. While a pinched nerve may resolve itself within a few days to a few weeks, in some cases, surgery may be necessary to relieve pain. Dr. Callewart can help you determine if surgery may be right for you once you schedule your comprehensive consultation.
Pinched nerves can be the result of a bulging, slipped, degenerated, or herniated disc. Some common causes behind a pinched nerve include:
Oftentimes, a pinched nerve in the lower back can feel similarly to hip pain, thigh pain, or kidney pain while those in the lower back may also cause cramping sensations or restlessness in the legs, affecting your walking capabilities or ability to balance yourself.
Aside from noting the symptoms you may be experiencing and performing a thorough physical examination, Dr. Callewart may recommend X-rays, CT scans, or MRI’s to provide a detailed visual of your spine. From there, he can determine the best course of action in regards to treatment or surgery, if necessary.
Since each of our patients experiences a very distinct case, every procedure we perform will vary from one to the next. Dr. Callewart strives to educate his patients on what they can expect of their procedure, every step of the way.
