Causes of Nerve Damage and Nerve Injury
It is the responsibility of healthcare professionals, such as doctors and nurses, to be competent in their medical practices. However, their knowledge and skills are not always adequate. Nerves can be severed during operations if surgeons fail to identify them. Tumor removals, replacement surgeries, and other similar procedures can put patients at risk for nerve damage. Nerve injuries can also occur from injections and blood drawing, when improperly done.
Nerve damage can be caused by exposure to neurotoxins. Neurotoxins are destructive to the nervous system and can damage nerve cells permanently. Heavy metals, pesticides, and industrial and cleaning solvents have been found to be sources of exposure to neurotoxins. Industrial and field workers are most at risk for occupational neurotoxin exposure. Symptoms of exposure are headaches, delusions, limb weakness, loss of vision, loss of memory, and altered cognitive performance. Work-related injuries may also cause nerve damage.
Traffic & Travel Accidents
Sudden impact on the body from car accidents can also cause great injury to nerves. Nerves can be damaged by excessive pressure, forceful stretching, and lacerations. Whiplash and lacerations are common causes of nerve injury in traffic accidents. Physical therapy, and in extreme cases, intensive surgery may be required to mend injuries from travel and traffic mishaps.
