Gluteal Nerve Damage
Depends on symptoms: Is it from a posterior approach hip replacement? Physical therapy for strengthening accessory muscles to support hip flexion and make up for glut max weakness and gait training is beneficial. The change in gait can lead to a back pain later on. If pain is your main issue, you may want to consider neuromodulator medication like Gabapentin or Pregabalin to help decrease the pain. I hope this helps! ...Read more
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more
Nerve Injury: Superior gluteal nerve injury may occur as a result of injections to the buttock, hip surgery, pelvic or hip fractures. A patient would demonstrate a drop of the hip while walking on the uninjured side. The gluteus medius and gluteus maximus muscles innervated by the superior gluteal nerve are important for pelvic stability. ...Read more

Yes: If the damage does not cause the nerve to be completely cut, then healing can occur. If a nerve has been cut, it will need to be reconnected in order to grow. Nerve grows about 1 mm/day, so depending on where the injury is, it may take over a year for recovery. It is difficult after a nerve is cut to get 100% recovery, but some return of sensation can be expected after repair. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: A broad question, because there are many ways a nerve can be damaged: compression (carpal tunnel), crush, cut, etc. A "bruised" nerve can heal itself; it grows back at about 1 inch/month. If the nerve is divided, it may occasionally heal, but more often needs surgical repair--and this doesn't always result in return of function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Variable: Generically, if only the coverings of a nerve are involved (myelin), and healing begins, it will take about 4 weeks. If the central portion of the nerve fibre is involved (axon), recovery is the speed of finger nail growth (.1 mm daily). Depends on location, causation, and whether successful treatment is available. ...Read more

Pudendal Nerve: Root value is s2, (racepinephrine) s3, s4. If you have a L1 fracture, (pretty far: 5-6 inches from s2: l1, l2, l3, l4, l5, s1, s2, (racepinephrine) s3, s4, s5) in order to affect spinal cord and s2, (racepinephrine) 3, 4, a lot more things including strength in lower legs would be affected. If your strength in your legs fine, it would be difficult to imagine you affected the fibers coming out lower. Http://www. Pudendal. Com. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
EMG-NCS: Can overlook nerve damage in several ways. First, the condition may not be involving the particular nerves studied. (wrong nerves tested). secondly, as is often the case with autonomic and pure sensory nerve involvement the condition can escape detection because it is in a mild stage or we have no baseline with which to compare it (this is why nerve biopsy is sometimes ordered) ...Read more

Theoretically and in reality it does not happen because nerves are very slippery and movable, and the acupuncture needles flexible. Because of that it is virtually impossible to pears a nerve.
Of cause care is being taken that nerves are avoided.
Acupuncture points are located along the fascias (very thin transparent tissues enveloping the muscles) and usually away from the nerves. ...Read more
Neuropraxia is defined as a temporary loss of function of the nerve. Some nerves are purely sensory while others carry both sensory and motor fibers. Traumatic contusion injuries to nerves or nerve compressions can cause Neuropraxia. Sensory nerves like sural nerve in the leg or mixed sensory and motor nerves like the median and ulnar nerves in the forearm & hand ...Read more
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
