What is Nerve Compression Syndrome?

Nerve Compression syndromes are one of the more common causes for pain in the extremities. These conditions occur in cases where nerves are squeezed, compacted, or otherwise entrapped. The compression generally occurs in just one location in the body but can affect nerves in your torso or limbs. There are a number of different varieties of the syndrome, many of which can go undiagnosed if patients fail to seek medical attention.

The most common nerve compression conditions include carpal tunnel, which impacts the median nerve in the wrist, and cubital tunnel, which involves entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Other, rarer forms of the syndrome include suprascapular nerve compression in the shoulder, meralgia paresthetica which impact the thigh, and radial nerve compression that can impact the arm, wrist, and hand.

What Causes this condition?

These nerve conditions are often the result of repetitive injuries, and frequently occur due to workplace conditions and repetitive duties. Accidents like broken bones or sprains can also create nerve compression. Finally, medical conditions like obesity, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, certain birth defects, and even high blood pressure can contribute to the disorder.

All of these causes can result in a reduction of blood flow to the affected nerve and swelling. Over time, the nerve’s myelin sheath insulation can be damaged, and the nerve’s structure may be altered. When that happens, the nerve’s function can be disrupted, preventing it from properly communicating messages to the rest of the body.

What Are the Symptoms of Nerve Compression Syndrome?

Naturally, the symptoms of this syndrome can vary, depending on which nerves are impacted. In most instances, however, symptoms are largely confined to the compressed nerve and the surrounding area. The most common nerve compression syndromes include:

  • General soreness, aches, and pain in the affected region
  • Loss of flexibility and impaired mobility
  • Otherwise unexplained muscle weakness
  • Numbness in the affected area or tingling sensations
  • Swelling, reddened skin, and inflammation
