Abstract

Although any peripheral nerve may be compressed anywhere along its course, nerve compression syndromes typically occur at predictable sites with predictable clinical presentations. A detailed history and physical examination can establish a diagnosis, and electrodiagnostic studies and at times imaging can confirm it. Physicians should adopt a systematic approach of diagnosing and treating these types of nerve lesions. The physician and the patient can be rewarded with favorable outcomes.
