Nerve Injury

Nerves are very fragile and can be damaged by pressure, stretching, or cutting. When injury to a nerve occurs, it can stop signals to and from the brain, causing muscles not to work properly, and a loss of feeling in the injured area. The nervous system is responsible for a great majority of the functions in the body, from regulating an individual’s breathing to controlling their muscles as well as sensing heat and cold. But, when trauma from an injury or an underlying condition causes nerve injury, an individual’s quality of life may be greatly affected. Dr. Alex Jimenez explains various concepts through his collection of archives revolving around the types of injuries and condition which can cause nerve complications as well as discuss the different form of treatments and solutions, including health coaching, natural supplements, and more to ease nerve pain and restore the individual’s quality of life.
