Nerve Inflammation and Injuries

Nerves are fragile and can be damaged by pressure, stretching, or cutting. Injury to a nerve can stop signals to and from the brain, causing muscles not to work properly, and a loss of feeling in the injured area.

There are a variety of nerve afflictions that the body experiences. Among these can include: Sciatica; Elbow-Ulnar Nerve Entrapment; Cervical Radiculopathy and others.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a very broad term describing nerve pain, not a specific diagnosis. Sciatic pain occurs when the nerve root in the lumbar spine is compressed. The diagnosis is actually the cause of the nerve compression, such as a herniated disk — also known as a slipped disk —  or spinal stenosis.

Ulnar Nerve Entrapment at the Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Sciatica is a very broad term describing nerve pain, not a specific diagnosis. Sciatic pain occurs when the nerve root in the lumbar spine is compressed. The diagnosis is actually the cause of the nerve compression, such as a herniated disk — also known as a slipped disk —  or spinal stenosis.

Cervical Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve)

Cervical radiculopathy, commonly called a "pinched nerve," occurs when a nerve in the neck is compressed or irritated where it branches away from the spinal cord. This may cause pain that radiates into the shoulder and/or arm, as well as muscle weakness and numbness.

Tissue surrounding certain nerve injuries can sometimes have poor blood supply. As such, injuries to these areas heal slowly and often incompletely because of insufficient cellular supply. Regenerative Medicine Orthobiologics applications of blood platelets or bone marrow aspirate utilize your own healing cells by applying the beneficial properties directly to damaged tissue to enhance repair and regeneration on a cellular level.
