What Are Types of Nerve Damage?

There are three main types of damage to the nerves:

  • Autonomic nerve damage: These nerves control involuntary bodily functions, and any injury to them can affect your blood pressure, temperature, digestion, bladder function, and more.
  • Motor nerve damage: Motor nerves are responsible for muscle strength and function. When these nerves are damaged, it may lead to partial or full paralysis and muscle atrophy.
  • Sensory nerve damage: Viruses, bacteria, infections, and autoimmune disorders can cause sensory nerve damage. This type of nerve damage can cause pain, numbness, and hypersensitivity.

Any nerve damage can affect a person’s quality of life, but the worst damage occurs when the spine, neck, or back has been injured.

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

The nervous system sends message from the brain to the rest of the body. The spinal cord is the main delivery system for the nervous system. If the spinal cord is injured through an impact to the back or neck, it may no longer be able to send these messages. This can result in paralysis below the level of the injury, leaving you unable to move or control those body parts. Paralysis causes a host of other complications as well, and is expensive to treat – in the millions of dollars over a lifetime.

What Are Symptoms of Nerve Damage?

A person who has sustained nerve damage may experience a number of different symptoms, including:

  • Ongoing pain
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Loss of motor function
  • Loss of sensation or feeling in certain part of the body
  • Inability to move or control part of the body
  • Tingling in the affected area
  • Numbness in the affected area
  • Seizures

You will only lose complete feeling in an area of your body if the nerves are completely severed. When the nerve is injured but not severed, the result is often chronic pain. This pain, unfortunately, tends to get worse over time.
