Can Nerve Damage Heal Itself?

What is the best way to heal nerve damage? Nerve damage can cause tingling, burning, or numbness in your arms or legs. It is not a fun thing to experience. This video answers the question of whether this type of nerve damage can heal on its own.

The source and cause of the problem determine the ways to take to solve it. Your nerves have an ability to heal and regenerate even once they have been damaged, assuming that they have been properly repaired.

Regeneration time depends on how seriously your nerve was injured and the type of injury that you sustained. If your nerve is bruised or traumatized but is not cut, it should recover over 6-12 weeks. A nerve that is cut will grow at 1mm per day, after about a 4 week period of ‘rest’ following your injury. Exercise releases natural painkillers called endorphins. Exercise also promotes blood flow to the nerves in the legs and feet. Researchers believe that regular exercise may create a long-lasting expansion in blood vessels in the feet, nourishing damaged nerves back to health. But sometimes, nerve damage can be permanent, even if the cause is treated.
