Yes, depends: There are roughly 3 types of nerve injury. Neurapraxia is when just the nerve sheath is damaged and has the best prognosis and is the most common. Axontomesis is when the nerve is damaged but not the sheath and has variable prognosis. Neurontmesis is when both are disrupted and has a poor prognosis generally.
