Nerve compressions occur when a nerve is squeezed or compacted. Common symptoms include pain, numbness, and muscle weakness at the site of the nerve.
Nerve compressions are often caused by repetitive injuries and are most likely to occur at sites where nerves pass through tunnel-like structures. Common nerve compressions in the upper limb are Carpal tunnel syndrome and Cubital tunnel syndrome.
