In brief: Pressure

Usually a compression neuropathy means that something is pushing on a nerve.
Sciatica is common - frequently a disc in the spine puts pressure on the sciatic nerve.

In brief: Let us explain

The term entrapment neuropathies refers to isolated peripheral nerve injuries occurring at specific locations where a nerve is mechanically constricted in a fibrous or fibro-osseous tunnel or deformed by a fibrous band.
In some instances the nerve is injured by chronic direct compression, and in other instances angulation or stretching forces cause mechanical damage to the nerve. Carpel tunnel.
