Are pinched nerves hereditary?

Question: Are pinched nerves hereditary?

Answer: The quick answer to this question is no. A pinched nerve specifically means that a nerve has been stretched, compressed, or pinched physically as a result of trauma or overexertion for example. However, it is possible to have inherited genes that could make you predisposed to getting a pinched nerve. So, the actual pinched nerve itself isn’t hereditary but you might be more susceptible to them than the general populace. Unfortunately since we are only just starting to discover all the various genes that make us stronger or weaker against certain ailments there’s no real way to know if you’re more likely to suffer from a pinched nerve or not. Maybe in a few years when everyone gets a genetic map made at their doctor who can then tell them exactly what their bodies are susceptible to.
