Clinical Presentation

The symptoms of nerve entrapment syndromes are dependent on the nerve involved, but some generalisation of nerve entrapment syndromes can be made.

The symptoms can be identified as irritative symptoms of pain and paresthesia, which affect sensory nerves and follow a temporal sequence.

If these symptoms are not treated, ablative symptoms, such as numbness of sensory nerves, and weakness and atrophy of motor nerves follow. These changes may be irreversible.
