The Effects of Nerve Damage
Nerves can be damaged by many different incidents. And while diseases, drugs, and various medical conditions can affect these essential parts of your body, a large percentage of victims suffer their injuries due to serious trauma, such as car crashes, that crushes and compresses nerves. These incidents may disable a single limb or lead to damage throughout the body, depending on the incident.
There are three different types of nerves that are found throughout the body. If damaged, victims will experience various effects.
- Autonomic Nerves – Damage will affect involuntary bodily activities, such as blood pressure, heart rate, temperature regulation, and digestion.
- Motor Nerves – Damage will block information coming from the brain and spinal cord, preventing movement and muscle action.
- Sensory Nerves – Damage will block information sent by skin and muscles to the brain, preventing the feeling of pain and other sensations.
Depending on how severe your injury was, you may experience any or all of these types of nerve damage and their related effects. As a victim, you may also experience minor effects, such as persistent tingling in the affected area, or severe effects, like complete loss of muscle control. In either case, your physical capabilities have been compromised and can lead to further complications without proper treatment.
How Can I Recover from Nerve Damage?
Because of the nature of nerves and the limitations of modern medicine, you may not be able to fully heal from your nerve damage. However, you have the chance to possibly reverse some of the effects, cope with your limitations, and prevent the worsening of your condition.
Through medical diagnosis, you will be able to discover the exact causes behind your nerve damage and its specific effects on your body. Doctors may prescribe you specific medications, such as anti-seizure drugs, to cope with your symptoms and dietary guidelines to improve your physical conditions.
Additionally, you may undergo surgery and physical therapy to relieve trauma and compression affecting nerves. This can reduce the severity of your symptoms and restore some physical capabilities. In other incidents, alternative medicine like acupuncture and meditation may help relieve the pain and muscle spasms that often result from your trauma.
However, all of these medical avenues cost thousands of dollars. But they are necessary to prevent injuries from possibly becoming fatal and giving you the chance at recovering as much as possible. By holding the people who caused your injury responsible through a claim against them and their insurance provider, you can receive the money you need to pay for past losses and future medical care.
