Hello Batul,

A pinched nerve occurs when pressure or force is put on an area of a nerve, causing it to send warming signals to the brain. Pinched nerves are usually caused by a damaged nerve and symptoms can include pain, numbness and weakness.

What to do-

  • Avoid continuous sitting. 
  • Maintain a correct sitting posture. Make sure that your backbone is straight. 
  • Apply hot pack on the affected areas.
  • Sit in a warm water bath tub or apply warm compresses on the affected area.


  • Start your day with 2-3 glasses of warm water. This will help to improve the metabolism. 
  • Avoid dairy products like ghee, milk, paneer, curd and also animal foods. 
  • Eat only plant based natural foods. 
  • Drink sufficient  water during the day. 
  • Drink coconut water.
  • Have salads, sprouts, seasonal and fresh fruits, beans, nuts in your diet.

Physical work

  • Being physically active is very essential for a good blood circulation in the whole body.
  • Start the day with a morning walk of atleast 30minutes. 
  • Do skipping for 5 minutes.
  • Perform 12 sets of suryanamaskar. 
  • Do pranayam like anulom-vilom, kapalbhati, bhastrika.

Sleep and rest

Sleep affects our circadian rhythm which had to be maintained for the well being of the body. Hence, the sleep quality and duration matters a lot.

Sleep early at night at around 10 pm and also wake up early in the morning at around 6 am. Sleep for atleast 7-8 hours daily. 

Thank you.
