How can I rehab a pinched nerve?

After carrying my toddlers for 4 years, my shoulder has developed a pinched nerve causing me to lose my grip.


I am an avid gym rat and this has started causing me severe problems with advancing my weight training.. I will get half way through my workout and will no longer be able to grip anything with my left hand and sometimes my whole left arm won't function fully.

It even pops and cracks now when doing laterals, which it had never done before.


Is there anything I can do to fix the problem?
