Nerve compression syndrome, compression neuropathy
The nerves of our body have to cover long distances from the brain or spinal cord to muscles and skin to some extent. Sometimes, they also have to pass anatomical bottlenecks, which may become too narrow over time and cause nerve compression. Firstly, pain and paresthesia (“tingling”) may occur and at a later stage even sensory loss and paralysis. This accumulation of symptoms is called nerve compression syndrome, compression neuropathy or sometimes entrapment neuropathy.
At Beta Klinik, we mainly focus on the treatment of the following nerve compression syndromes:
- carpal tunnel syndrome (wrist)
- meralgia paresthetica (groin)
- Morton´s neuroma/Morton´s metatarsalgia (foot)
- cubital tunnel syndrome/ulnar nerve entrapment (elbow)
- tarsal tunnel syndrome (ankle)
