Peripheral Nerve Entrapment
The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is a network of nerves that control the function of sensation, movement, and motor coordination by connecting the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) to other parts of the body like our muscles and organs. When nerves in the PNS become entrapped (pinched) you can experience pain and / or loss of function of the nerves.
