Nerves can be damaged by too much pressure, by stretching or by a cut. The signs and symptoms of a nerve injury vary depending on the nerve injured, type of injury and severity of the injury. Some common signs and symptoms include:

  • Weakness near the injury site
  • Your skin feels numb in certain areas around the injury
  • Limited range of motion and function
  • Pain at the site of the injury or along the nerve

What Is the Peripheral Nervous System?

The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is a very crucial part of the body, connecting the nerves outside of the brain to the spinal cord. Peripheral nerves affect the limbs and organs, helping the brain communicate to other parts of the body. With peripheral nerve damage or injury, it is crucial that you seek the help of a specialist to help repair the damaged area and regain your normal functions.

At Wake Orthopaedics, we have a team of peripheral nerve specialists who work daily to restore our patients’ quality of life. Our orthopedic specialists are not only highly skilled in a variety of orthopedic specialties, but they’re passionate about offering the highest level of patient care in the area.
