Pinched nerve? I'd suggest an Orthospinologist Chiropractor [not just any Chiropractor] first. Most reputable Chiropractors are quick to refer you back to your medical doctor and will work with a medical doctor for the healing of their mutual patients. Orthospinology is often better than Physical Therapy for pinched nerves.
I have had carpel tunnel syndrome in the past. A phyiscal therapist showed me a series of hand exercises, that eventually relieved the condition. They mostly involved stretching fingers individually and bending the hand backwards at the wrist.
Using the computer causes neck and elbow and finger problems.
Follow these light exercises to relax the elbow and fingers.Keep taking deep breaths during this exercise.
1 Open and close your fists tight, keeping the hand straight in front of you.6 times.
2 Bend and straighten the palms of your hands, keeping the hands straight in front of you.
3 Place your hands on your shoulders, and rotate the elbow 6 times clockwise and 6 times anticlockwise.
