A 46-year-old member asked:
Can nerve damage repair itself?

No: If the nerve is simply bruised, then the nerve damage may improve with time alone. However, nerve lacerations or direct injuries often require surgical exploration and direct repair in a timely fashion. For chronic injuries, nerve grafts may be necessary.
