Peripheral Nerve Disorders
Peripheral nerve disorders, also known as peripheral neuropathy, are a large group of conditions affecting the nerves around the brain and spine, which communicate with the limbs and organs. Due to the breadth of the peripheral nervous system’s function, disruptions can cause one or more of over a 100 disorders, ranging from mild to severe. Most commonly, peripheral nerve disorders are caused by genetics, diabetes, toxins, alcoholism, malnutrition, inflammation, injury, and nerve compression, as well as certain medications such as those used to treat cancer and HIV/AIDS.
