Full Abstract: Nerve compressions are really quite common, especially those involving the hand and upper extremity; nothing has been discussed in this presentation about problems arising from the lower back (and entirely separate subject). The performer's awareness of the causes and symptoms produced by nerve compression is crucial to the effective, early evaluation and treatment of such conditions. Most of these can be treated effectively without surgery; however, when it's necessary, nerve decompression offers the possibility of significant recover of hand and upper extremity function and return to performance.
