Understanding Nerve Injuries in Albuquerque Car Accidents

When most people think of nerves, this immediately think of pain.  Indeed, a nerve injury can result in excruciating pain and suffering.  It is, after all, the body’s pain relay network.  However, some nerve injuries can result in a complete lack of pain.  This could result in come and go pins and needles, permanent pins and needles, or just numbness.  When this occurs, the nerve is usually severed and damage beyond repair.  Thus, your body has just lost its ability to identify pain and sensation.  This is usually permanent, unless it is repaired almost immediately by an expert physician.

Nerve injuries can also result in no pain and no numbness.  These nerve injuries occur to motor nerves, which are even worse.  Motor nerves send signals to your muscles to help contract or extend a muscle.  If a motor nerve is damaged, it can permanent prevent your body from sending signals to these muscles.  This means that you will be unable to move that body part which is controlled by that motor nerve.  This can result in permanent and debilitating conditions, including paralysis or partial paralysis.  Again, this must be immediately repaired by an expert surgeon immediately or it will be permanent.
