Our brains are like a computer with a messaging system that allows messages to go back and forth from the brain to the rest of our bodies via the spinal cord.
This messaging system we speak of is our nervous system that is incredibly important to our well-being as it is responsible for body functions and activities like breathing, thinking, and feeling.
Any damage to it can be life-threatening, especially if untreated.
There are over 100 types of nerve damage with varying symptoms that may include loss of balance, pain, and even the inability to feel pain.
Like the types of nerve damage, the causes of nerve damage also vary depending on health conditions such as diabetes, infectious diseases, nutritional deficiencies, severe injuries, trauma from accidents, and cancer that cause them.
