Nerve Damage Shouldn’t Be Ignored

Our nerves are very sensitive, but this also makes them fragile and open to injury. Nerve damage can occur from prolonged compression, such as in carpal tunnel syndrome or in spinal stenosis; or from being over-stretched, cut, or as a side effect of diabetes, among other causes. When a nerve is damaged, it can have…Read More >>
