Herbs That Heal Nerve Damage
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
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
Nerve injury repair: Nerves may be either peripheral or central. Those outside the brain and spinal cord generally have a coating of myelin that is sensitive to b vitamins, specifically b1, b6, b12, and folate (folic acid). Methylfolate (folic acid) and B12 are indicated in the treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. But before just taking some, have yourself tested to determine if they are needed, and diagnose the reason for nerve injury. ...Read more
Which nerves ?: Most of the time will not be any nerve damage . If there is a degeneration due to any cause central nerves like optic (eye ), auditory (hearing ) olfactory ( smell ) will never regenerate but peripheral nerves ( myelanated ) will regenerate at the rate of 1 mm in every couple of days . ...Read more

If problem due to treatable condition such as celiac disease or sarcoid, might also see reversal. Uncover the precise mechanism of the disorder, and treat appropriately. ...Read more
Pinched nerve relief: Purpose of spinal decompression is to prevent or halt nerve damage. Microdiscectomy is minimally invasive and mostly successful in hands of experienced neurosurgeon. Decompression by laminectomy is more invasive, sometimes necessary with more risk of nerve damage.. Inversion therapy (hanging upside down) is a possible non surgical, usually temporary, treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Variable: If the nerve is cut and repaired at the original surgery, the prognosis is usually good, but recovery can take about one year. This is because the nerve regenerates only about one inch per month. Alternatively, if the extent of damage is uncertain after the original surgery, physical therapy is prescribed for three months. ...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).
