How Do I Know If a Pinched or Injured Nerve Is The Cause of My Pain?

During your consultation with Dr. Peled, he will take a thorough history focusing specifically on your pain symptoms. We will discuss all the prior treatments which you have tried in the past, which ones were successful and which ones were unsuccessful and go over any imaging studies or diagnostic tests that you may have had. Dr. Peled will then perform a comprehensive physical examination to elucidate if there are any physical findings that suggest that a pinched nerve could be causing your pain. Oftentimes, a nerve block will be used to confirm whether or a suspected nerve is actually the culprit in your particular case. If the nerve block is successful in significantly reducing or limiting your pain then you may become a candidate for surgery to decompress, repair or remove the injured nerve.chronic pain_pg2
