UNDERSTANDING NERVE-RELATED ISSUES

Peripheral nerves, crucial channels of communication between the brain and the rest of the body, can encounter a spectrum of issues. From tingling sensations to more pronounced discomfort, these manifestations often point to underlying concerns within the peripheral nervous system. These are some of the conditions contributing to nerve-related issues.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. This compression can lead to a range of symptoms, including tingling, numbness, and weakness in the affected hand. It can also lead to discomfort or aching in the hand and wrist, often exacerbated by repetitive movements or prolonged periods of hand use.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Emerges when the ulnar nerve, responsible for transmitting signals to the fourth and fifth fingers, encounters compression or irritation at the elbow. Certain activities that involve repetitive bending of the elbow or prolonged pressure on the area can contribute to the development of cubital tunnel syndrome.

Brachial Plexus Injuries

The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that controls the muscles of the shoulder, arm, and hand, providing sensation to these areas. Injuries to this network can occur due to trauma, stretching, or tearing, leading to a range of symptoms depending on the severity and location of the injury.
