Can a pinched nerve cause muscles to twitch?

Question: Can a pinched nerve cause muscles to twitch?

Answer: Nerves control muscular response by causing them to contract or release through electrical impulses. When you have a pinched nerve the signal from that nerve can be interrupted or it can stimulated producing involuntary muscular contractions called fasciculations. So, a pinched nerve can definitely cause muscles to twitch. In some situations the pinched nerve might resolve itself such as when it’s due to inflammation from an injury, intense work out, etc. Other times relief can only be provided through professional manipulations from a doctor like a chiropractor and in some sever cases even surgery is needed to relieve the pinch.
