Remedies for Pinched Nerve on Neck And Shoulder: Is there an exercise or vitamin that I can take for a pinched nerve in my neck or shoulder? I have suffered with this for 4 years. Please help me.

Advice on Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve in the general area of the neck and shoulder could actually be a mere symptom of some other problem. It could be indicative of spondylitis or a muscular spasm that has been left unchecked and untreated. If you have suffered for such a long time, the first thing to do is get a medical opinion and determine what the problem is. This will help you to tackle it better. It is entirely possible that you might need a routine of exercise and medication combined that will help you out at this late stage.  In any case, you can follow some simple methods to control the pain and make your problem more manageable.

One of the most effective remedies for managing pain is to apply ice packs to the area. When the pain is at its peak, you will find that this simple method will provide relief by merely numbing the area. For long term, make a paste of cinnamon powder and honey and apply it. This can be left on for a few minutes up to about 15 minutes and then washed off. You will have to be careful with this remedy, since it can cause your skin to burn and redden. But it is a highly effective remedy to draw out the pain from your body.
