How long does it take a compressed nerve to rejuvenate?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Frances Dyro
53 years experience in Neurology
Neuropraxia: It would depend on whether is is still compressed or if not, how long the nerve was compressed. If the nerve is severed or was compressed (say from sleeping in an odd position, the nerve may have to regenerate from the point of damage. The rate is about an inch a month. If only the myelin coating is damaged function comes back as the coating is regenerated. In a bell's palsy this starts in 3 wks.
