The peripheral nerves comprise 43 pairs that branch off from the central nerves of the brain and spinal cord, and they supply sensation and motor function to the entire body. Injury to these fragile nerves can be minor or devastating, and require expert diagnosis and management to restore optimal function.

Treatment for Peripheral Nerve Injuries
For mild injuries, your treatment plan may include a range of non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy and rehabilitation, orthotic devices and alternative therapies such as massage and acupuncture.
More serious peripheral nerve trauma may require surgery, including operations such as DREZ, brachial plexus injury repair, carpal tunnel release, nerve entrapment surgery, nerve sheath or thoracic outlet syndrome procedures.
