Laurens Holve briefly describes trapped nerves and nerve

Nerve pain is a very common form of pain and often results from disc problems, causing pain to radiate often from the neck and into the arm of if from the lower back travelling down into the legs. The pain is often described as like an electric shock or like warm water travelling down the limb and is often accompanied by numbness and tingling.

This sort of pain can often be relieved by a combination of mild Osteopathic manipulation and Acupuncture and so injections or even surgery are often avoided.
