Re: pinched nerve back
First you need to have a comprehensive examination by your primary care physician and then an MRI. Then have the MRI results compared with your symptoms and an examination with an orthopedic spine surgeon and/or neurosurgeon. It's' not that surgery is needed, but NS and OSS can give you a non surgical plan of action as well. They are the experts on disc issues in the spine.
