Anatomy of the Pinched Nerves
Nerves are running inside the spinal canal and when they get compressed, people have symptoms of sciatic or the pinched nerve. Most of the people experience pain from their waist down, explains Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute.
Disc degeneration and arthritis can cause the pinched nerve. Depending on the type of activity, the pain can be worse.
