kettlebells increase your strength. strength does wonders to heal and prevent injuries, but there are a multitude of problems for which swings will be ever more painful and incorrect form will hurt you even more. please consult someone who can at least formcheck your swings and TGUs before jumping into something like this.
A pinched nerve is an indication of something going wrong, and can not be separately treated. The body is a complex machine you can't take anything out.

KBs are not just for strength increase they improve the complete posterior chain, but this is not a kb forum. Obviously beginners should start with an instuctor, as kbs are simple tools, but can cause harm if someone uses the wrong technique.
