Any person is at risk for developing nerve compression, a medical disease also known as nerve impingement or pinched nerves. When a nerve or group of nerves is compressed, a wide range of uncomfortable sensations can result, including pain, numbness, tingling, and weakening. This article will discuss the cost of treating nerve compression (ค่า รักษา กระดูก ทับ เส้น which is the term in Thai), including direct and indirect costs such as medical care and therapy.

Diagnosis Expenses

The first step in treating nerve compression is making a diagnosis. In most cases, this means seeing a doctor for a checkup where additional diagnostic procedures like X-rays, MRIs, and nerve conduction investigations might be ordered. Depending on your area and healthcare provider, the price of these tests may be fairly high. Without health insurance, the cost of an early diagnosis can soon pile up.

Costs Of Available Treatments

The severity and location of nerve compression affect how it is treated. Here are some of the most often-used treatments, along with their respective prices:


Medications for pain control may be prescribed. Insurance and the drug being given are two major factors that can affect how much you wind up paying for these medications.


Surgical decompression of the compressed nerve may be necessary in extreme situations. Surgical techniques, including hospital fees, surgeon fees, and post-operative care, can be one of the most expensive ways to treat nerve compression.

Alternative Options

Some people try to alleviate their symptoms with the use of alternative therapies like chiropractic, acupuncture, or massage therapy. Although these choices have the potential to alleviate suffering, they are not without drawbacks of their own.

Assistive Devices:

Wrist braces, splints, or ergonomic equipment may be necessary, depending on the location and severity of the nerve compression. These details may increase the final cost.

Indirect Costs

  • Pain and discomfort caused by nerve compression can cause lost work days or reduced work hours, both of which lead to a loss of revenue.
  • Factor in the extra expenditures of transportation and lodging if your treatment needs you to travel a long distance or stay overnight at a healthcare facility.


Medical bills, treatment, surgery, and other hidden costs can add up to the cost of treating nerve compression. It’s important to think about your insurance and look into other forms of financial aid to help with these costs.
