How it happens? What can be done for
Trauma whether by a physical Injury or surgery is a common cause
of neuropathy, nerve damage.
Trauma - Physical Injuries are the most
common cause of injury to a nerve.
Injury or sudden trauma, such
as from automobile accidents, falls, sports-related activities.
etc. can cause nerves to be partially or completely
severed, crushed, compressed, or stretched, sometimes so

Broken or dislocated bones can exert damaging pressure on
neighboring nerves, and slipped disks between vertebrae can
compress nerve fibers where they emerge from the spinal cord.
can cause pressure neuropathy.
This is "pinching" a nerve by putting too much
pressure on it. For example, the sciatic nerve may be
painfully compressed by a ruptured disc in the lower
spine, causing sciatica. Pressure neuropathy is also
neuropathy (neuralgia, neuritis, pinched or trapped
nerve) is caused by physical compression or irritation
of major nerve trunks and peripheral nerves, producing
distant nerve pain symptoms. Certain sites in the body
are more likely to produce nerve entrapment because of
anatomical vulnerability that can be created by
Repetitive stress - frequently
leads to entrapment neuropathies, a special category
of compression injury. Carpal tunnel syndrome is
an example of repetitive stress.
Cumulative damage can result from repetitive,
forceful, awkward activities that require flexing of
any group of joints for prolonged periods. The
resulting irritation may cause ligaments, tendons, and
muscles to become inflamed and swollen, constricting
the narrow passageways through which some nerves

inability to transmit nerve impulses because
compression has damaged nerve fibers either directly
or indirectly by restricting their supply of
Trauma that causes severe muscle injuries can compress nerve. .It all
depends on the nerve compressed.
Surgeries can damage or
completely sever a nerve creating the trauma that
results in the pain of nerve damage or neuropathy. For

Stun guns are designed to incapacitate individuals
for short periods of time so that they can be
apprehended. Unfortunately, some individuals have
adverse reactions to these devices, especially when
they are misused. Some
injuries that can result include electric burns, heart
palpitations, cardiac arrest and nerve damage.
Gunshot wounds can range from minor, superficial
skin wounds to major organ injury and death. A bullet
wound can tear tendon, muscle, or nerve. The
severity of a gunshot wound is based on the location
of injury and the type of weapon used. Even
after the wound is healed, there may be significant
Per "The Body
Electric" by Robert O. Becker, M.D. and Gary
Selden "Peripheral nerve fibers can regrow -
otherwise we'd lose sensation whenever we cut a
finger." "The peripheral nerve's cell
body survives safe in the cord or brain, and the cut
end of the attached part of the fiber is sealed off.
.... and begins to grow toward the proximal fiber (the
one nearer the center of the body)....... they are
growing across the chasm. When these cells
meet, the nerve fibers grow along its reconnected sheath
and eventually make contact with the same terminals
it originally served. These
cells "can cross large gaps"..... It
can close a gap of 1 centimeter."

None of the various neuropathy treatments will build healthy nerves. You can cover up the symptoms and you can increase circulation and you can make a person feel less pain, etc., but if you build healthy nerves, there will not be any symptoms (healthy nerves don't hurt, tingle, burn, are not numb, etc.) and the relief will be lasting.
Restoring Nerve Health
Healthy sensory nerves mean that they are not painful. Healthy nerves means that they communicate and don't send wrong signals such as burning, hot and cold, tingling when there is no reason for it. Healthy motor nerves mean that they relay messages from the brain to the muscle so that they move correctly. Nerves need to be healthy to function properly.
The body needs specific nutrients (vitamins) to be able to build healthy nerves.
It may not give immediate relief (although many do feel changes in the first week) as the vitamins are working at a cellular level, but it does address the actual problem, builds healthy nerves and brings lasting relief.
(For temporary relief while building healthy nerves, go to Pain Relief Formula)
