Ilioinguinal Nerve Entrapment Treatment
Depends on severity!:
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with splinting at night, streroid injections, and outpatient surgery. My bias is to get an injection first. I would get nerve conduction studies prior to surgery.
Also, the median nerve can be trapped higher up: this is called pronator teres syndrome, and is above the wrist and immeidately below the elbow. Check it out on wikipedia. ...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).

What is radio frequency ablation? Can it work for calming inflammation of irritated ilioinguinal nerve?
Yes: Before an ablation you would normally undergo at least two nerve blocks of the nerve to see if the there is any positive pain reduction.

Discuss in detail with the doc recommending the procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
