nerve entrapment syndrome

nerve entrapment syndrome

Compression of a nerve or nerves resulting in nerve damage. This may cause anesthesia or pain if a sensory nerve is affected and paralysis if a motor nerve is involved. The compression may be due to physical pressure on the nerve (i.e., sleeping in a position in which a nerve is pressed upon by surrounding tissue) or to swelling of tissue in a compartment through which the nerve passes.
