Nerve Injuries

Nerves are the "telephone wiring" system that carries messages from the brain to the rest of the body. A nerve is like a telephone cable wrapped in insulation. Nerves are fragile and can be damaged by pressure, stretching, or cutting. Pressure or stretching injuries can cause the fibers carrying the information to break and stop the nerve from working, without disrupting the insulating cover.
