Dr. William Ferrar is treating patients with pinched nerves at Primary Health Group - Bremo.
The symptoms are the pain of the leg or arm - traveling from the spine to the foot or the hand.
The pinching of the nerve or impingement can be spontaneous or the result of an acute injury.
Treat symptoms with over the counter pain medicines. Certain positioning of the leg or arm can help too.
Many will heal in several days.
