Nerves carry messages from the brain to parts all over the body.
The nerves can become damaged from too much pressure, overstretching or lacerations and stop the brain’s message from reaching its destination.
Nerve Damage Symptoms
Symptoms include: pain, weakness or numbness and can be constant or intermittent, depending on the severity of the injury. Surgery is usually required when a nerve injury is more severe, stitching the nerve ends back together, and allowing time for the nerve fibres to grow back on to the muscle. Physical therapy with a specialist in such injuries is mandatory to achieve the best outcome.Book a Consultation
