Nerve compression syndrome


With nerve compression syndrome, a nerve is damaged from overuse or compression. Carpal tunnel syndrome, which results in a pinched nerve in the wrist, is an example.


Pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling in the affected area are symptoms.


Treatments are pain relievers, splints, corticosteroid injections, physical therapy, and surgery.
