You just came out of your doctorâ€™s clinic with a diagnosis of a pinched neck nerve. The pain has been bothering you for quite a while and it was starting to debilitate you. Pinched neck nerves are brought about by a degenerative disease of the vertebral disc or neck arthritis. These conditions decrease the height of the disc and form bone spurs. A herniated vertebral disc can put pressure on a nerve that irritates the nerve, resulting to inflammation and pain. You could also acquire pinched neck nerves through a cervical spine injury.
