Orders that move people’s arms and legs are carried from our brains into these regions by nerves. Of course, these nerves pass near the bones and muscles as they travel within the body. If they are subject to compression over there for various reasons, that is, if there is a nerve entrapment; the signals they carry might be disrupted. Similar to a crushed cable or hose that causes conduction disturbance; this nerve compression problem leads to impaired senses such as numbness and tingling, pain, and ultimately paralysis.
The most successful treatment of nerve compression that does not resolve with physical therapy is to simply rescue the nerve from the compressed site, which is an operation that neurosurgeons can do. Of course, this is done after detecting exactly where the nerve is fully trapped by using advanced technology methods such as electrical measurements (EMG) or MR neurography that are performed in the hands of experienced technicians.
