Visit a Chiropractor. A pinched nerve is the result of a spine subluxation, correctible by manipulation of the spine. Both Chiropractors and Osteopaths can help a pinched nerve.

Pinched nerve in neck?

If you have a pinched nerve in the neck, you should visit a chiropractor. I had a pinched nerve and I didn't see a chiropractor, but it went away. If you can't afford a visit or don't want to go, just do what I did and lay in bed all day and not move your neck. I will feel like intense pain and may be sore the next couple of days but I would rather do that then pay the ridiculous prices of 1 chiropractor visit. You probably got the pinched nerve because you slept on it differently, or did something out of the ordinary lately. Hope this helps!!

What is the best medicine for a pinched nerve in your neck that causes bad migraines?

Migraines are a genetic neurologic disease - the cause is in your genes. However, a pinched nerve in the cervical spine area (neck) can trigger Migraine attacks in people with the genetic capacity for them. Usually the best way to begin to manage Migraines is to find and eliminate triggers. In this case, that would include the pinched nerve. Depending upon the nature of the pinched nerve, it may be possible for a pain management specialist to do a nerve block procedure that might be helpful in at least temporarily eliminating or improving this trigger. This nerve block injection will contain a numbing agent and usually a corticosteroid.
